Get up to date with a truly original summer wardrobe as The Atkinson is transformed into a vintage heaven once more this August with Pillbox Vintage Fairs.

The summer Vintage Fair will be taking over the first two floors of The Atkinson, which is the perfect spot for the event. A vintage treasure in itself, still with many of its original features such as the tiled floor in the foyer and library, the vintage art-deco fireplace and 3 floors full of history, stories and heritage.

In association with Pillbox Vintage, the summer fair brings to Southport handpicked stalls including a marvellous and eclectic mix of men’s and women’s clothing, jewellery, millinery, accessories, home ware and lots more besides.

The event on Saturday 15 August runs from 11am – 4pm so stay for brunch or afternoon tea in the Bakery just £12.95 for two or £16.95 for two with prosecco!

How about a chilled glass of wine as you watch the world go by and rest your feet from all that shopping? Or indulge yourself with a scrumptious cake and coffee as the diet can always start tomorrow!

The Bakery will be open in the foyer as well as a pop-up café’ serving cakes, pastries and refreshments from the Studio so you can take a break from the shopping.

With such an eclectic mix of stalls you will most definitely find those truly original and affordable vintage buys!

Join us for the summer fair on Saturday 15 August from 11am-4pm, free admission. If you would like a stall, there is still time just email Pillbox Vintage at
