Published on Monday, 21st May 2018 in Town Centre news

Rotherham town centre will be the place to be for nostalgia-lovers on Saturday 2 June, as The Vintage Hop returns for its 5th year.

A vintage market, vintage vehicle display, children's entertainment and much more will provide a fantastic day out for all the family! 
There will be fabulous live music all day on two stages (one in All Saints’ Square and one near Boots, Howard St) from The Washboard Resonators, Moonshiners, North Side Band, The Tombstone Buzzards, solo vintage singer Jilly Kemp and students from Rotherham College. 
The fun begins at 10.30 am, continuing until around 4.30 pm in the town centre, but music fans can continue to enjoy entertainment into the evening with three bands playing at The Bridge Inn, including the ever popular Mee Kats. The Bridge is open all day, with the live music starting from 8.30 pm.
The Vintage Hop will also see vintage-themed craft workshops from Gemma Nemer of the Button Tin, who was recently involved in creating the fantastic decorations in Elsecar to welcome the Tour de Yorkshire. 
Rotherham's Chapel on the Bridge will also be open from 10.00 am until 1.00 pm on the day of The Vintage Hop and will be hosting an art exhibition and sale from local artist Les Black.
Cllr Denise Lelliott, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Jobs and the Local Economy, said: “The Vintage Hop always proves to be a fabulous, fun day out and popular with visitors of all ages.
“Visitors to the event are always encouraged to dress up and it really adds to the nostalgic atmosphere on the day - we look forward to seeing your marvellous outfits at this year’s event!”
As well as free weekend parking at Forge Island, visitors can get four hours parking for only £1.50 in a number of council-owned car parks every Saturday and two hours free in the Drummond Street “red zone”.
