The organisers are the faces behind the increasingly popular ‘The Vintage Event’, hosts of regular pop-up vintage events that combine vintage fashion with music and entertainment which have gained a reputation in South London amongst vintage lovers and fashion bloggers South of the River. This special vintage inspired event for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will provide the ideal atmosphere for local residents, businesses and visitors to London.
“Balham is a vibrant and cosmopolitan town and this event will offer the perfect backdrop for people of all ages to come together. ‘The Jubilee Special’ aims to recreate the community spirit and general zeitgeist of a bygone era, in celebrating all that is British. A fitting tribute to the past 60 years.”
