So Last Century’s Christmas Vintage Market
12th December 2021 @ 10:00 - 16:00Free
We’re excited to bring So Last Century Christmas Vintage Market at the Mansion back to Beckenham Place Park this December!
On the day there’ll be a great collection of 30 of the best vintage traders, outside and in the Ground Floor rooms of the Mansion. You can expect to find mid-century decor, lighting, furniture, homeware, books, prints, antique maps and charts, brocante, salvage, fashion, accessories and much more.
There’ll be delicious street food outside, the excellent Mansion Bar will be serving mulled wine amongst other tipples, and the Mansion Cafe will be operating a take-away service.
So put on your warmest coat and come along on 12 December for some Christmas present inspiration, and an abundance of unusual and unique things to buy. And enjoy the beautiful park while you’re there!
Step-free entrances to Ground Floor rooms only, with level access throughout. Dogs welcome inside.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Safety
The safety and well-being of visitors and our traders is our highest priority. These are the principal measures we’ll have in place on the day (subject to the health situation at the time):
Face coverings should be worn inside the Mansion.
Stalls indoors and outdoors will spaced slightly further apart than prior to 2020.
Contactless payments encouraged whenever possible
Hand sanitising stations will be in place at the main entrance, and elsewhere indoors and outside the building.
Toilets and high-frequency touch points sanitised regularly by Mansion cleaning staff.
Monitoring of numbers of people entering and leaving the building, to allow social-distancing and prevent overcrowding.
There’ll still be a Contact Tracing system in place. If you wish, you may register your visit by using the NHS Covid-19 app on your phone to scan the Mansion’s QR code displayed at the entrance to the building (if you don’t wish to use the app, or your phone doesn’t support it, you can provide your name and phone number which we will retain on a written register for a maximum of 14 days).
Please don’t come if you feel unwell.
Please follow the latest Government restrictions whilst at the market.
