More than 150,000 people enjoyed a weekend packed with vintage entertainment as Preston Guild celebrated 20th century music, fashion and design. The Vintage Guild Weekend was curated by design gurus Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, and supportred by Lancashire Life. It featured events conjuring up the 1920s, 50s, 70s and 90s.


Avenham Park was transformed with vintage cars, fashions and memorabilia and visitors were offered the chance to be transformed too, with hair and make-up stylists on hand. There were also fashion and art workshops and dance classes teaching the steps that would have been danced at Guilds of the last century.


More than 40 stalls offered an eclectic mix of new, recycled and re-used vintage themed wares from clothing to music memorabilia and this enjoyable weekend closed with a concert headlined by Human League.
