Welcome to a brand new meetup group for all those Vintage and Retro Seekers in Glasgow and beyond.
Do you have a passion for fashion of a bygone age? Are you a rocknroller, a hepcat, a jive bunny or a Gatsby glamour gal/boy? If so then this group is for you.
We will be arranging lots of fabulous trips to vintage fairs, tearooms, merchant festival vintage fayre, Art deco buildings and art galleries, steam train trips and much more besides.
I am a dyed-in-the-wool vintage lover for over 2 decades now and I always dress in vintage/retro whenever possible. I do believe I may have been born in the wrong era but how lucky we are to be able to look back and wallow in a little bit of nostalgia!
The first meetup of this group will be next Wed 26th July to the utterly gorgeous Panopticon music theatre in Glasgow’s Trongate. The world’s oldest music hall where Stan Laurel made his debut amongst many others, really is a hidden gem in Glasgow’s crown and I think everyone here should visit it at least once. It is my favourite place in Glasgow. Throughout the summer they are holding various events incl movie nights (silent films etc) with full orchestra, 50’s musical film nights, magic performance, and on 26th July a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party!! I can’t wait.
I hope you will join up and come along if you can to our first meetup kicking off in Once Upon a Tart –a gorgeous retro café near the Panopticon which has the wildest décor - fuchsia and black with velvet sofas and chandeliers, I have ever seen in a cafe .. Oh and delicious food too. Any questions, pls feel free to drop me a line.
