If you live in Brighton and haven’t seen posters, leaflets or flyers for the forthcoming City Reads festival, then you must have your eyes shut! This well advertised event is set to take place over September and October and local crafters, designer-makers and vintage fans can get involved.
The City Reads festival is an annual citywide ‘big read’, conceived to spread a love of books and ideas to the widest possible audience throughout Brighton & Hove. The concept is simple: selecting one book by one author for the whole community to read, discuss, debate and creatively engage with in a series of special events, workshops and performances.
Well, one of the events they are organising is a Vintage Fair at The Old Market, Hove, which promises to celebrate 1950s culture. There are many exciting vintage and vintage-y themed sellers already lined up but some pitches are still available. So if you are a designer-maker whose work has a vintage/retro bent, head over to their traders page for more details.
