From pop-inspired perms to DJ masterclasses, classic cars and graffiti workshops to learning the Lindy hop, this weekend’s Vintage on the Dock will bring music, fashion and culture from yesteryear to Liverpool’s Albert Dock for a free, summer event for the whole family to enjoy.
And to mark the occasion, Albert Dock Liverpool is offering the following prize for a family of four: Lunch at Albert Dock’s very own American-style diner, What’s Cooking; Tickets to see the new summer exhibition at Tate Liverpool - Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms - the largest Francis Bacon exhibition ever staged in the north of England (showing till September 18); Tickets to the Beatles Story - a unique, award-winning visitor attraction telling the story of The Beatles; A ride on the Wheel of Liverpool.
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!
Wayne Hemingway said: “It’s not long to go now until we arrive in Liverpool for Vintage on the Dock and we are very excited with this year’s programme which really does have something for everyone to enjoy. We love the idea that an event of this scale can have so much totally free content and be in such a brilliantly accessible location.”
Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager, Albert Dock Liverpool, said: “You name it, from music and dance to food, fashion, art and cars from the 1920s to the 90s, Vintage on the Dock has it all, and promises to be a brilliant day out for all ages, young and old. The programme is amazing and we can’t wait to take a trip down memory lane with Wayne and his team.”
Highlights of Vintage on the Dock include:
Vintage marketplace - 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, the vintage marketplace is a treat to behold.
Classic car show - A visually stunning selection of classic cars are travelling to the Dock from all over the country for both days, taking visitors on a journey that celebrates timeless vintage automotive design. Look out for British made vehicles such as a 1969 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and a Bentley S1 Continental, not forgetting a 1965 Lambretta Golden Special with mirrors galore! You’ll also spot a fully customised 1949 Chevrolet Styleline, an American showstopper that starred in the hit film, Grease!
Vintage workshops - At Vintage on the Dock we take a sense of wartime make-do-and-mend austerity and apply it to a modern sense of sustainability and respect for the environment. Learn a new skill or revive an old one with expert tutors and stitch and sew masters on hand - including vintage letterpress, DIY fabric printing, and Graffiti workshop.
Vintage on the Dock takes place at Albert Dock Liverpool on July 9 and 10, from 11am-6pm both days. For more information on this and all other upcoming events at Albert Dock, visit www.albertdock.com .
