Time for Tea vintage fair

On 7th September we are back at the stunning Haigh Hall for our fourth vintage and retro craft fair of the year.  The theme is “time for tea” with free dancing lessons at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm.  The idea is that you can try steps from different periods in time, without the need for a partner.

As well as the dancing classes we have 40 fab stalls selling vintage and retro clothing, accessories, handbags, jewellery and collectables.  We also have upcycled furniture, handmade crafts, jewellery and artwork to cupcakes.  There is something for all the family, with admission just £1 and children under 12 free.  The fair starts at 10am and finished at 4pm
