For 2018 Vibrant Vintage are organising two Vintage and Retro Craft Fairs at the impressive new venue of Smithills Hall. Smithills Hall was built in 1520 and is one of the oldest and best preserved manor houses in the North west of England. The Hall is now owned by Bolton Council,
The fair will take place in several different rooms on the ground floor of the Hall, including the Tudor banqueting room. The venue really is an impressive place, if you have never been then it is certainly worth a look round.
The fair has a lovely selection of stalls selling ladies and mens vintage and retro clothing, acccessories, collectables and furniture. Plus there will be handmade pens, cakes, knitted item, gifts and much more.
There is a popular privately run café called Poppins, which attracts visitors all year round. Admission to the fair will be free of charge. I'm afraid as the Hall is rather old, dogs are not permitted.
