Vintage on the South Bank features an inspirational line-up of world renowned bands, DJs, collectors from each decade as well as current bands and brands inspired by Britain's rich creative heritage. Vintage will feature a line-up of catwalk shows, hands on creative experiences with a gathering of over 200 of the finest purveyors of vintage clothing, accessories, and homewares in a Vintage Marketplace running for hundreds of metres along The Thames.

Visitors can have their hair + make up done in a iconic style, can take part in fashion, design and art workshops and the best dressed get their chance to strut their stuff on the Vintage Catwalk.

By night the whole of the Southbank complex will be transformed into a series of evocative set dressed venues, complimented by a flotilla of party boats, cruising The Thames on a summer evening specialising in genres from funk, to electro swing.

The British Film Institute will also host three days of 20th century classic and iconic movies, Public Information films and documentaries.

Vintage at Goodwood is the brainchild of designers Gerardine and Wayne Hemingway. The South Bank is this year also celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 1951 Festival of Britain.
