The vibrant neighborhood of Kensington in London is home to a new gem - the Kensington Vintage Fair. Launching in November 2023 within the hallowed walls of St Cuthbert's Church in Earls Court, this fair is a fusion of history, art, music, and culture.
Wander through aisles that transport you back in time, with a plethora of antique rarities, art, collectibles, and vintage fashion that promises a delightful journey for every visitor. From mid-century modern design items like glass and ceramics to the niche Fat Lava and Italian ceramics, there's an eclectic mix waiting to be explored. For those with an affinity for the written and visual arts, the treasure trove of unique literary and photographic pieces will delight.
To set the mood, the enchanting live music ensures that every step you take is in rhythm with the past. As you browse the booths, enjoy the array of delicious refreshments that will make your treasure hunt all the more enjoyable.
Several of the stallholders at this market are regulars at iconic London markets such as London's Old Spitalfields Antiques Market, Camden Passage, Bermondsey Market, and The Old Cinema in Chiswick. Among these esteemed names are the likes of Adam Calvert Bentley, a connoisseur of the antiques industry. From humble beginnings immersed in the world of antiques at the age of 16, Bentley has turned his passion into a thriving business. His experience ranges from furniture restoration to being an independent antique dealer with a renowned showroom in Battersea, London.
But the greatness doesn't end here. The Kensington Vintage Fair will be graced by BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Mark Hill, who will bring a unique offering to the table - a clearance sale of his private collection. Hand-picked for their rare features, intriguing backstories, or sheer beauty, many of these items have even been featured on his popular social media pages over the years. Bargain hunters, take note!
For those who want to be a part of this magical journey, tickets are priced at £5, with concessions available for £3. Children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at the door or via Eventbrite. So immerse yourself in a world of nostalgia, art, and timeless treasures at the Kensington Vintage Fair - a must-visit for any vintage enthusiast.
