Get ready for a day of vintage glamour combined with the music of the Swinging Sixties, the thrill of motor racing, some seriously good looking Vespas and Minis, a tea tent, and plenty of fun for all the family!
This Saturday 14th June sees our fabulous Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fair join forces with the wonderful Cultra Hill Climb for the very first time at the spectacular Ulster Folk & Transport Museum!
The event runs from 10am to 5pm so that’s a whole day of fun for everyone, and you will find us located in the Kennedy Room, on the first floor of the Cultra Manor House which will be at the hub of all the activity beside the food marquee and motor displays.
The scene is set to celebrate all ‘Minis, Mods and Monsters’ and vintage lovers everywhere are invited to the daylong event, run in association with the Thoroughbred Sports Car Club NI, to celebrate the Swinging Sixties in roaring style as fashion, lifestyle and music meets motoring and scootering at Cultra’s Manor House, for a Mod-tastic day out for the whole family! For all the guys who complain that the vintage fairs are geared more towards the ladies, make sure that you don’t miss this Saturday (it has been described by Sugahfix.com as the ultimate man creche!)
The theme of the world’s oldest active Hillclimb is in celebration of Paddy Hopkirk’s win on the Monte Carlo rally 50 years ago as Northern Ireland commemorates an important year for the Mini, and the event will also recognise the coolness of Vespa-riding mods and modified cars, alongside monster cars and trucks.
The Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fair will be located in the upstairs of the beautiful Cultra Manor House and will feature 20 fantastic stalls showcasing and selling authentic vintage, handmade and upcycled clothing, fashion accessories, homewares, jewellery, art, crafts & gifts, collectibles and much more! DJ Johnny Dregg from Sunglasses After Dark (Belfast’s hottest 50s & 60s rock and roll club) will be providing some knockout vintage sounds from the ’60s throughout the day, so you can twist along while shopping for vintage treasures!
The event has something for everyone – visitors to the Vintage Fair can also appreciate the sights and sounds of the Hillclimb while browsing and shopping for vintage delights as the windows of the Manor House will overlook the races and the lawn where food from the BBQ or an ice cream from the vintage tricycle can be enjoyed. Crosslé Car Company of Holywood will also have a display on the ground floor of Cultra Manor, where Plum Tyndall will launch his book ‘Hidden Glory’, based on the world-famous car company, in the most fitting of settings.
The Cultra Hillclimb takes place at the Manor House on the grounds of the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum on Saturday 14 June, from 10am to 5pm. Event day admission pricing applies (more information can be found at https://nmni.com/Home/Ticket-Booking.aspx?EventId=905
