Wee Willie Harris will be launching an action-packed schedule of entertainment on Sunday when the Cherry Red Records Stadium hosts our Vintage event.
The British rock and roll singer from the 1950s, famously known as “Britain’s wild man of rock n’ roll” for his energetic stage shows and TV performances will open the all-day event (see full schedule below), which costs just £7 for adults and is free for children under the age of 15.
There’s a chance to throw on your best 50s clothes as there will be vintage market stalls, jive classes, live music, DJs, an American style diner, classic cars and hot rods. A pin-up photographer will also be on hand to transform people into their favourite Hollywood stars. If you wish to book a session visit, click on Vintage fashion.
In the evening, The Metrotone Doo Wop band will be on hand to entertain featuring Den Hegarty from 1950s-styled band Darts. Combined day and evening tickets are just £16. All funds raised from the event goes towards the club.
