We’re thrilled to bring So Last Century Vintage and Retro Fair to Croydon for the first time this September. And what better place than the newly refurbished Fairfield Halls - south London’s largest arts, culture and entertainment centre!

Constructed in 1962, the building is situated on land where fairs and markets had been held from the 16th century, and was designed with a nod to the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank. Over the course of the weekend of 28th and 29th September 2019, another fair will be taking place on this historic site!

With around 40 hand-picked vintage traders on each day, you can expect to find affordable mid-20th century decor, lighting, furniture, homeware, kitchenalia, brocante, mid-century ceramics, illustrations and prints, 1960s and 70s travel posters, vintage clothes, accessories & jewellery, haberdashery, records, repurposed goods, and much more, all in one large hall. There’ll be a small clutch of designer-makers, and we’re privileged that local textile designer and illustrator Kate Marsden will also be with us, displaying and selling her work.

Take a break from your treasure hunting at the cafe bar in the hall and explore the rest of what the rejuvenated complex has to offer.
