Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway bring their award-winning Vintage to Southbank Centre as part of the Festival of Britain 60th anniversary celebrations. For one glamorous weekend from 29th – 31st July, Vintage at Southbank Centre will celebrate the music, fashion, film, art, design, dance and of course delicious food and drink from 1920s -1980s.

Ticket holders can immerse themselves in the tastes of days gone by with food to fit the music and fashion, not to mention some fantastic period cocktails from the bars, provided by Company of Cooks. Take for example the North South Divide Pub where Northerners can treat themselves to beef stew and a pint of ale, while Southerners can enjoy pea soup and a glass of Pimms before taking part in outrageous games and sing-along in the specially created boozer.

In the Warehouse it’s paper cups and lager from the tin served from a bar made of pallets; truly authentic. There will be themed and dare we say it, nostalgic nibbles in abundance – think Cheesy Wotsits, Skips and Pork Scratchings (those were the days).

Behind the Royal Festival Hall, The Real Street Food Market will bring together the very best tastes of the current street food revolution, or you can dine al fresco at one of the 19 restaurants that surround the Royal Festival Hall.

Tickets for the Vintage entertainment programme are priced at £60 per day and include entrance to the Royal Festival Hall with its 13 venues, over 70 bands and artists, 150 DJs, art installations, workshops, catwalk shows, free decade specific hair and make-up and much much more.
