Vintage at Southbank Centre is a sensual delight, a big dressing-up box, a collector’s dream and a joyous creative feast for all ages. For one glamorous weekend we celebrate the music, fashion, film, art, design and dance from the 1920s to the 1980s with 3 unique revue shows featuring soul legends Percy Sledge and Booker T, electronic pioneers Thomas Dolby and Alan Wilder, 60s icon Sandie Shaw and over 150 DJs celebrating club culture through the decades, including Andrew Weatherall, A Guy Called Gerald, Greg Wilson and Norman Jay.
Royal Festival Hall will transform into a multi-venue playground designed by Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway and the Hemingway Design team. Over 13 hours each day, pass holders can ‘learn the dances’, take in 70 live performances and 150 exclusive DJ sets across 8 decade specific nightclubs, enjoy catwalk shows hosted by Jo Wood and Pearl and Daisy Lowe, brilliantly conceived vintage food and cocktails, or take advantage of all the wonderful vintage shopping on offer in the Vintage Marketplace. Watch out for the Vintage ‘style hunters’ who roam the site to snap the most fashion-savvy festival goers and the `Best in Show Parades’ that reward all those who quite simply look fabulous… Will it be you?!
