Super, exciting news this month as I have just signed up to henna on a stall at the NEW monthly Vintage Market at Brew Haus Bradford and Bierkeller. As a long term supporter of Bradford and its exciting redevelopment, I am over the moon to see such an exciting event taking place in our city centre. It will be FREE to attend – though I must add that the menu is delicious, so you must stop there for your Sunday Dinner.

New Vintage Market will showcase the best of Bradford’s creative businesses
Beer & Barbers launch for West End event
A quirky new Sunday market is being launched at the heart of Bradford’s West End, showcasing the best of local crafts, alternative fashions, and street food – complete with a retro-style 1920s barber.
The Vintage Markets will be held monthly in an inspirational modern setting in the new BrewHaus and Stein Bierkeller bars on Randall Well Street – with the first one launching on Sunday, November 29 from 12noon to 8pm.
The venues opened recently alongside the Alhambra Theatre, as part of a £1.2million refurbishment of the old Windsor baths building. The development created a contemporary nightlife complex owned by Tokyo Industries.
These innovative events are modelled on similar markets held successfully at BrewHaus venues in Huddersfield and Lincoln, which attract around 50 stallholders, with hundreds of visitors passing through the doors.
They will feature a broad range of unique, niche goods by local vendors, including arts and crafts, jewellery, clothing, handmade and continental gifts, records and musical items and street food, with entertainment throughout the day.
A star attraction will be a themed Barbers & Beer area where award-winning Executive Barber Wayne Anthony will launch the UK’s first-ever Barbers’ Beer range. Visitors will be able to get a first taste of the new Barberlite, (a 4% pale ale) Dirty Blonde, (a 4.8% golden blonde ale) and Beardie Brew (a 4.8% Dark Stout) created by the Halifax Steam Brewing company in Hipperholme, while trying out Mr Anthony’s famous Royal Shave.
Wayne Anthony has won over 50 major hairdressing championship awards, including the British Championships, and has trained with the British World Cup squad and the world renowned “Constantino Brothers”.
Well-known in Bradford for his iconic Wayne Anthony’s which was based in Wibsey for over 20 years, he now runs a retro 1920s “one stop grooming shop” in Hipperholme, capturing the essence of the traditional old-fashioned barber shop.
Tokyo Industries Managing Director Aaron Mellor said: “We’ve just seen the latest big step in the regeneration of Bradford with the opening of The Broadway centre which is providing the whole big chic, shiny, shopping mall experience.
“We want to put on some cool alternative events which give people that really unique and very personal shopping experience in the chilled-out atmosphere of our bars. Stalls are completely free, as the aim is simply to get involved with local creative and independent businesses and offer them somewhere a bit different to showcase their products. At the same time, we will get chance to show off our new venues to people who might not normally visit a bar or club”.
Stalls are provided completely free to appropriate businesses and entrance to the markets for customers is also free.
The markets will be held on the last Sunday of each month, apart from December which will see a special Christmas market on Sunday December 13.
