Chancellor's Way, Moseley Road, Fallowfield

Visit the fair for a fantastic range of vintage fashion, antique textiles and costume sourced from around the world. You’ll find textiles from the 18th century right up to the swinging 1960’s and 70’s! Furnishings including pre-1950s rugs and unique fashion accessories.

Tables and tables of colour and cloth. Whether you are a student looking for design inspiration, a collector looking for a unique addition, or just want to browse beautiful materials and objects, this is a fair you can not miss.

In addition to the fair, the first floor offers an insight into textile practices, supported by guilds, museums, archives and a fabulous graduate showcase of student bursary winners.

There are free talks throughout the day, discussing textile and design topics, ideal for researchers or if you just want to know a little more about fabrics, textile design, it’s history and future.

There are refreshments both at the Armitage Centre or you can bring your own lunch.
General admission £7.00
