A mini cinema area will be set up in the ancient hall’s 14th century undercroft where fashion film clips from the 1940s onwards will be shown throughout the day. Visitors can use the films, from the British Pathé film archives, as inspiration for their own authentic vintage look or just soak up the nostalgia as they are transported back to former ages of glamour.
The Little Vintage Lover Fair only visits Norwich twice a year, each Spring and Autumn. Hosted within the magnificent medieval surroundings of Dragon Hall it is the most atmospheric vintage fair in the eastern region. It is a prime outlet for traders, buyers and collectors of beautiful and unique vintage outfits and accessories. There is also a wide range of collectables, accessories and textiles, costume jewellery, kitchenalia and homewares, small furniture, etc from circa 1920’s to 1980’s.
Created and hosted by former catwalk model and singer/songwriter Zoe Durrant (who splits her time between Norfolk and Sweden where she is a professional singer) the fairs have a unique atmosphere. As well as all the stalls, delicious tea and cakes – baked by Zoe herself – will be served on evocative vintage teaware.
DJ Jazzlord who specialises in music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s will be spinning a selection of jazz, rhythm & blues, ska, soul and funk to create the perfect retro ambience.
Little Vintage Lover Fair is the perfect opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre and find unique treasures under the magnificent crown post roof (and spilling over throughout the building) of this ancient hall on King St – originally built in 1430 for medieval trader Robert Toppes to display his wares.
Dragon Hall is an outstanding, Grade 1 listed medieval trading hall which operates as a heritage museum. It is also a venue for performance events, weddings, markets and fairs and is an inspirational environment in which children of all ages can learn, create and discover.
