So Last Century Vintage & Retro Fair was established in spring 2015 by friends Alison Davis and Alan Old. The first event took place in September 2015 in Beckenham, south east London and was a resounding success. This spurred-on the duo to hold another two months later, and more the following year. 2017 began with So Last Century opening another Vintage and Retro Fair in Catford and start its popular Vintage Market at the Mansion at Beckenham Place Park (read the blog here). In 2018 two fairs were held in Tooting, south London.

So Last Century has become a regular fixture in London’s vintage calendar, popping-up around ten to twelve times a year at several venues across South London

And December 2018 saw So Last Century teaming up with Wembley Park to hold their first event in north west London, a Vintage Christmas Market, at the new Boxpark.

In September 2019, So Last Century makes its first appearance in Croydon, at the much loved and newly re-opened Fairfield Halls. Have a look at the Next Events page, and Fairfield Halls’ website for more details.

Looking ahead to 2020, in addition to many more events at the current venues the new year promises fairs and markets at some brand new London locations. Watch this space!
