This Sunday we are in Manchester for the first time and to say we are excited is an understatement! We have been on the look out for an amazing venue for ages for a Manchester Vintage Wedding Fair, one that is the right size but also steeped in history. And boy did we strike lucky when we booked the Victoria Baths.
The venue is totally stunning. “When it opened in 1906, Victoria Baths on Hathersage Road, Manchester, was described as “the most splendid municipal bathing institution in the country” and “a water palace of which every citizen of Manchester can be proud.” Not only did the building provide spacious and extensive facilities for swimming, bathing and leisure, it was built of the highest quality materials with many period decorative features:- stained glass, terracotta, tiles and mosaic floors.” Quote from their website
It still has the original changing booths and makes the perfect place for a wedding. Make sure you pop by on Sunday to have a look around.
Well back to our event. We have 40 exhibitors, live music and the team at the venue are putting on a tea room. To see our full list of exhibitors have a look here. Many are offering promotions on the day too! Here are some of them:
