Sunderland Live's Vintage & Retro Festival

SAVE THE DATE: 1st and 2nd of June

Following on from the huge success of Sunderland Live's Feel Good Festival , the team at Sunderland Live have paired up with those at Daisy Green Magazine to bring the lovely people of the North East the amazing Sunderland Live Vintage & Retro Festival - which will be held across the city on the 1st and 2nd of June.

Admittedly, being a sucker for all things Vintage, I have been excited about this event for weeks! As if the beautiful lady on the flyer (above) is not enough to entice you to come along, there are plenty of events being held across the weekend, including an opportunity to do a bit of vintage shopping, watch vintage themed fashion shows and bop along to the fantastic female vocal-harmony group - Scarlet Street - who I wrote about in my previous post.

If all that wasn't enough, one of my favourite places in the entire world, Serendipity Tea & Trinkets are hosting a "Vintage Afternoon Tea Party", in the Pottery Gallery at The Museum & Winter Gardens in Sunderland city centre. Visitors get the option of purchasing goodies such as, a glass of champagne, a cheeky cocktail (they're amazing, trust me!) or a traditional afternoon tea! If you want to join me and many other cake (and cocktail) addicts for Serendipity afternoon tea, go over to the Ticket Source page and grab a ticket quickly, as the spaces are limited and it's not one to be missed!

Just to let you know what you could be missing, here's a few photos of the fab Afternoon tea and cocktails from Serendipity:

Have I convinced you yet?

I hope to see you all there dressed up in your vintage and retro glad-rags, with a Serendipity cocktail in hand, of course!
