THE GREAT GATSBY FAIR – DE LA WARR PARADE, BEXHILL SEAFRONT, BEXHILL-ON-SEA, EAST SUSSEX TN40 1DP
We’re excited to be curating the Pop Up Vintage Village at the Great Gatsby Fair on the seafront at Bexhill, organised by Bentley Fairs on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd July 2018. This fabulous event will take place along the Promenade and Metropole Lawns, beside the De La Warr Pavilion, a stunning example of 1930s Art Deco architecture and will be one of the biggest events of the year on the South Coast!
Pop Up Vintage market stalls will line the De La Warr Parade selling all things vintage from women’s fashion & menswear, vintage jewellery and accessories, mid-century homeware, furnishings, maps & posters plus all things retro for the home! The event is free for the public and opens from 10am-6pm on Saturday 21st & 10am-5pm on Sunday 22nd July.
A fun weekend on the coast is planned with vintage shopping, live music, bands, entertainers and for the children there’s circus acts, funfair rides and candyfloss! Food Feast South East’s food vendors will be set up offering delicious hot & cold food, with vegetarian & vegan options plus bars selling cocktails, mocktails, juice bars, specialty ciders and locally brewed beers.
There will also be a Charleston Party & Tea Dance on the Saturday afternoon from 2pm with dance competitions offering cash prizes for the winners. The following day is Retro Sunday with a Peaky Blinders theme, featuring a competition for best dressed with more prizes up for grabs.
All traders are invited to a Vintage Swing evening in the main marquee on the Saturday night, free of charge.
NB: Traders must have Market Traders Public Liability Insurance – a copy of which needs to be emailed to us at least 14 days before the event. See list of Market Traders Insurance providers below.
