The Caterham Vintage and Art Fair – 17th September offers a step back in time

Preparations for the first ever Caterham Vintage and art fair are in full swing, and the main aim is to make old and beautiful items both available and affordable to the local community. The combination of old fashioned vintage and modern art will be the creative leaning for those who make the journey to Caterham Valley on Saturday 17th September.

Historic Soper Hall will give visitors the old fashion delight of rummaging through a dressing up box which contains items from the 1920’s right up to the 1980’s. There will also be an exhibition of art that has been inspired by the vintage craze, and there will also be a wide variety of original and quirky art works and crafts on display from South London and Surrey based artists.

Entertainment will be provided with an old fashioned music hall and there will also be a vintage tea room where you enjoy a cuppa while taking part in a raffle, a tombola and a ‘guess the weight of the cake’ competition. All in all there will be 18 stalls featuring art, vintage, and vintage inspired arts and crafts.

The event runs from 1100-1700 and is entry in completely free. The organisers hope that any lovers of vintage and art will come along to have a look and a rummage through the many items on offer, including vintage clothes and accessories and also home wares.
