Rotherham's Vintage Hop @ All Saints Square and Minster Gardens | Rotherham | United Kingdom

Calling all nostalgia junkies.

It’s time to get out the Brylcreem, tease your victory rolls and practice your rock ‘n’ roll dance moves as Rotherham’s Vintage Hop returns.

Musical entertainment throughout the day will include the return of the George Formby Experience with Paul Casper Esq who has a truly uncanny resemblance to the man himself. Lula & the BeBops, a fantastic five piece band from the heartland of the north who will be playing jumping, jiving, rockin’ rhythm and blues. Plus, we have Lorrie Brown, one of the country’s most experienced Vera Lynne tributes, performing many 40s favourites.

To complement the live stage there will be a fabulous Vintage market along Effingham Street with stalls selling an eclectic range of clothing, homewares and other vintage goods.

On Church Street, at the side of Rotherham Minster, look out for a wonderful display of vintage vehicles including a 1937 Velocette, a 1953 Austin Somerset and a 1939 Morgan Supersport, plus many more!

Plus, the Chapel on the Bridge will be open, so make sure you go along to see inside this wonderful building and experience a part of Rotherham’s history.

Why not come along dressed in clothes of the era (40s, 50s or even 60s) and really feel a part of the whole day, with prizes to be won for best dressed.
