Events for Vintage Lovers in Norwich – October

October looks like another busy one for Norfolk based fans of the world of the vintage and slightly bizarre.

The Bo Nanafana Social Club kicks off the month after it’s summer hiatus  (for which I will be having my hair done all lovely by vintage hair stylist Flamingo Amy) and Clutter City ends it with a chance to shop for handmade goodies from independent sellers whilst tucking into Toffee Apples and spiced cider.

As far as I can tell no one in Norwich is organising anything of the Halloween variety this year, sadly. I shall hopefully be heading off to London to the Halloween event Don’t Dali with the Devil, organised by the lovely Fleur De Guerre and Emerald Fontaine. If you do happen to know of any suitably vintagey or bizarre Halloween events taking place in our Fine City then do please let me know and I’ll get them straight onto the events page!

Still, it’s not that we’ll be short of entertainment this month anyway…..
