The Vintage Village Sabrina Fair

Stand by your tiaras, it's . . .


When: Sunday 10th September 2017, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm
Where: Stockport Covered Market Hall, SK1 1EU
How much: £2 entry, concessions £1.50, under 12s FREE

There's very few celebrities awarded the accolade of being known only by their first name, but this young lady from Stockport made her showbiz breakthrough in 1955 and soon became one of the most photographed women of her era.

Who are we talking about?  Why SABRINA of course!

Our September fair is dedicated to Stockport's own international icon of glamour, Sabrina, and if you young folks weren't aware of our local heroine before, we aim to put that right!

Never knowingly under-dressed (behave, you lot!), and gifted with a breathtaking figure and bewitching face, Sabrina could attract media attention simply by washing her hair. 

Sadly, Sabrina passed away last November in Hollywood, but her closest personal friend of her last years, Stephen Page, is collaborating with us to present a suitably dazzling celebration of her life, with some thrilling world exclusives!

The suggested dress code for the day is - of course! - full-on, high-wattage 1950s glamour and pizazz!  Dress to impress and you may snag yourself a nice little treat to take home!

Here's what we have lined up so far for The Sabrina Fair:

★  The Sabrina Salon at the Produce Hall - a gallery of some of Sabrina’s own favourite photographs from throughout her career, along with a selection of her gorgeous garments and some precious personal artefacts.

★  At 11.30am (and again at 1.00pm) Sabrina’s close personal friend Stephen Page will share fascinating stories about her friendships with Frank Sinatra and Liberace, her date with Elvis, and her memories of Stockport, with showings of never-before-seen footage of Sabrina’s travels around the world and at home in Hollywood.  This will be at the Sabrina Salon in the Produce Hall.

UPDATE!: Neil Kendall - the world's best burlesque photographer, and leading authority on burlesque history, will be joining Stephen Page to give a short talk. 

★  The sensational Bexi Owen sings live!

★  We have a Best Dressed Competition at 2.30pm in the Sabrina Salon at the Produce Hall, to be judged by Stephen Page, Neil Kendall and the Vintage Village boss Alan Lowe.  Wear your most glamorous 1950s style outfit and you will be in with a chance of winning a special prize!  (Hint: channel your inner Sabrina - take inspiration from these photos here to be in with the best chance!)

Of course, we are still at heart a vintage fair, so you can expect a market hall heaving with quality, authentic vintage goods for ladies, gentlemen and the home. 

There's top quality refreshments too, from Sheila's Pies - who will have their very popular barbecue on the go too - and the multi-award-winning King of Kakes, Stuart Thornley Cake Design for all your sweet treat needs.

Let us know you're coming on our Facebook event page!
