Best of Vintage Manchester Awards: Vegas glamour to shimmy its way to Manchester235 for industry accolades

By Helen Le Caplain

The cream of Manchester’s vintage crop will be celebrated in a lavish Viva Las Vegas-themed award ceremony at Manchester235 later this year.

Vintage enthusiasts will bring the glitz and glamour of the Nevada strip back in the 1960s Rat Pack era to the newly-refurbished venue on October 23.

Following last year’s sell-out event Vintage Manchester editor Susan Earlam, in collaboration with creative events company The Social Butterfly, decided to host another event to showcase Manchester’s thriving vintage community.

Susan said: “Many people that work within the vintage industry are often one-man bands or have full time jobs alongside their vintage venture.

“I wanted to create an event that not only highlights their successes but also to bring the whole of Manchester’s vintage community together to celebrate.”

The Las Vegas theme will start on arrival with meet and greets from showgirls dressed in authentic costumes.

And winners won’t be the only ones celebrating with bubbles as Manchester burlesque artist Ginger La Rouge will entertain the masses with her infamous champagne glass act.

Vintage powerhouse Miss Kiki deVille will resume the role of host and compere and will also treat guests to fabulous vintage-inspired performances throughout the evening.
