Vintage shops aren’t hard to come by in the Northern Quarter but there aren’t many that you can swan around picking out some retro gems whilst swigging leisurely from a delicious cocktail or craft ale. Odd Bar have rightly redressed this imbalance with a vintage fair at their premises on the first Sunday in March. Get yourself a good hearty breakfast from the NQ fave (vegan and veggie friendly too, obvs) and then casually check out the handmade dresses made from only the prettiest of vintage fabrics at Dolly Clothes Peg, there are vintage craft items and kitchenware from Vintage Works and accessories & jewellery from Fikle Vintage. Basically, vintage everything. There’ll even be a vinyl records stall that we’re sure the on hand Bellevue DJs will be sampling from as they accompany the fair with an all wax set on the decks all day. Once you’re all shopped out you’re welcome to stay on for the free live Americana and blues bands playing downstairs with the superlative The Wicked Path and some of their musical friends. Vintage Sunday vibes.

Sun 5 Mar, Odd Bar, 30-32 Thomas Street, M4 1ER. Tel: 0161 833 0070, noon-6pm, FREE,
