After the sell-out debut of Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway's Vintage Festival at Merchant City Festival we're delighted to announce that it returns on 26-27 July, the first weekend of the XX Commonwealth Games.
This year's Vintage Glasgow will celebrate being part of Festival 2014 with music, arts and culture from across the Commonwealth as well as bringing together British music, fashion, film, art, dance, food and design from the decades of cool, the 1920’s to the 1980’s.
Favourites from last year including Soul Casino, Torch Club, The Vintage Market Place and Beauty Salon will return and the Charity Shop DJ will take over Merchant Square across the weekend.
The full programme of events, masterclasses and workshops will be announced soon but we're delighted to announce tickets are on sale now for the classic Soul Casino and Torch Club nights at the Old Fruitmarket.
Soul Casino - Saturday 26 July 9pm, The Old Fruitmarket
The Soul Casino recreates the sounds and style of the classic 70s soul club and 80s disco scenes with DJs Eddie Piller, Wayne & Jack Hemingway and more. The Old Fruitmarket dance floor will reverberate to the sound of classic 60s Northern Soul and the uplifting ‘Modern’ Soul movements that fused so brilliantly in the early 70s through to the up-tempo Disco sounds of the 80s covering uber cool Jazz-Funk, Boogie, Rare Groove and everything in between.
Torch Club - Sunday 27 July 8pm, The Old Fruitmarket
The Torch Club brings you a glamorous evening of 1940s entertainment, themed dinning and period cocktails. Get your hair and make-up done and dance into the small hours in a truly immersive environment.
The Old Fruit Market will come alive as we re-create those packed dance floors of the 1930s and 40s. After just a short lesson you will be ready to take to the floor and enjoy the incredible sounds of 18 piece Bratislava Hot Serenaders. No previous dance experience is necessary as the Social Foxtrot is a very quick and easy dance to learn. Then, later in the evening, why not pick up the simple steps to a favourite wartime novelty dance... Yes, you’ll find yourself, doing the Lambeth Walk. Oi!
