Events - The Secret Vintage Fair

The location has been revealed, the stallholders are retro-ready and the burlesque dancers have curled their bangs! The Secret Vintage Fair is well and truly back and Colchester Life will be in the mix!

Annnnnd they're back! 

The Secret Vintage fair is back in Colchester this Sunday, at the Town Hall from 10:30am to 4pm for their usual vintage shenanigans and more! As always they've pulled together over 50 traders selling the finest vintage and retro clothes, accessories and homewares they can lay their hands on. Some are even coming from abroad just for the occasion!

This is not just a shopping event but a whole experience - there'll be live music from Band of FoolsThe Knightingales- Vintage Trio and Tallulah Goodtimes, burlesque from Burlesque Bangs and magic from Nothing Up Our Sleeves , plus fashion, vintage beauty, jam jar cocktails and, our favourite tearooms, Cardamon Tea Lounge will be providing vintage afternoon teas! 


They'll be goody bags for the first 25 through the door and best-dressed awards, if you fancy pulling your poodle skirt out of the wardrobe and your hair into a high ponytail!

But really, best of all (ahem!) Colchester Life will be amongst the stallholders, giving out information about Colchester independents, handing out bribes... er, cupcakes, and flogging... er, giving you the opportunity to get your hands on our discount card, which not only gives you a year's worth of exclusive discounts at over 30 local businesses, (from glasses to vegan food, furniture to haircuts!) but also gives you special discounts on the day of the fair at Lesley's Girls Vintage, Cardamon Tea Lounge and many more! Can't wait! Look for the Colchester Life logo and come take a selfie with us!

Entrance is just £3, and accompanied under-15s go free. A proportion of this will go to this year's charity Autism Anglia. All the details here!
