Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival

Grand Grotesque Parade

With being so busy lately we’ve missed the beginning of the amazing Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival.   This incredible festival includes some great vintage fun in the form of a late night Vintage Market on 24 September in Pine Walk and a revival of the Edwardian Grand Grotesque Parade from the Pier through the Lower Gardens.  There are loads of amazing events, including a visit from the famous Vintage Mobile Cinema and countless other “intriguing, spectacular and (sometimes) down-right curious arts experiences …” including dance, theatre, visual art, literature, film and more, across various places and spaces in Bournemouth – more than 50 events in all!

This Sunday Sixty Million Postcards great Twee by the Sea is bringing us mask making in honour of the parade but there are just masses of events over the course of the next few weeks.  Have a look at the festival website for all of the info and please support this brilliant initiative!

Tivoli Theatre’s In the Spotlight show 10 September

This part of the world is becoming a bit of a mecca for all things quirky and vintage!  The beautiful Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne has got this fantastic looking show for the evening of 10 September.  Apparently it combines Parisian charm with Las Vegas glamour which can’t possibly be a bad thing!  If you’re at a loose end and want to start your Vintage weekend with a bang get yourself down there.

Pokesdown in Bournemouth is also stuffed full of beautiful vintage shops including that of our lovely friends at Love from Hetty and Dave who will be bringing their completely beautiful things to our fair!!  I can almost always be guaranteed to be seen wearing my pretty blue tit brooch and carrying my favourite ever handbag, a customised vintage number complete with added blue tits as well.  MollieMakes have also recently featured the equally pretty mouse bag.   Come along to our fair and see if you can pick up your own piece of original arm art 🙂
