VINTAGE ON THE DOCK returns to Albert Dock Liverpool on July 9 and 10, bringing a free, family weekend celebration of 20th Century vintage cool to the North West’s most visited tourist attraction. Visitors looking for some seriously stylish eye candy can browse the vintage marketplace, with the best traders hand-selected by keen-eyed curators, Dotty’s Vintage. From vintage clothes and accessories, to mid-century modern homewares, records and music memorabilia from the 1920s through to the 1990s. Receive a vintage, music star-inspired hairstyle in the mobile hair salon, Total Eclipse of the Head, and allow the dance professionals to show you the moves that set dance floors alight in times gone by, from the Lindy hop to the Charleston. Car enthusiasts will also enjoy the stunning selection of handpicked classic cars on display. The brainchild of world-renowned designers, Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway MBE, and son Jack, Vintage on the Dock will also include a Best in Show, as beady-eyed style spotters will be out in the crowds looking for the finest examples of vintage glamour and head-turning flair to appear in the parade, with rewards for those who look quite simply, fabulous! Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager, Albert Dock Liverpool, said: “Last year’s event attracted huge crowds and we are over the moon to welcome back Wayne Hemingway and his talented creative team to transform Albert Dock yet again for Vintage on the Dock. Visitors of all ages will uncover a treasure trove of vintage delights, from music and dance, to food, fashion and art from the 1920s to the 90s, while the vintage cars will be back after being such a huge attraction last year. For those who experienced it first time round to younger generations, Vintage on the Dock will be an unforgettable family party on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.” Wayne Hemingway MBE, said: “Music, fashion and culture is firmly ingrained in the fabric of the city, and Vintage on the Dock will bring all that to the fore in a way that never looked so good. “The lofty warehouses of Albert Dock provide the perfect backdrop for this celebration of all things vintage cool. Expect the best bits of last year to get even better – vintage vehicles, immersive street performances that wander through the evocative dockside architecture, DJs that keep the crowds on their feet all day and creative workshops for all the family.” Vintage on the Dock takes place at Albert Dock Liverpool July 9 and 10, 11am-6pm both days.
