PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES AS EVENTS MAY BE AFFECTED BY COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
At Rose & Brown we never sit on our laurels, and because of this we like to introduce quirkiness and creativity to our vintage happenings. Whether it's putting on a Festival of Britain inspired fashion parade at the National Media Museum; serving afternoon tea and playing old 78s on a wind up gramophone in the street or setting a vintage fair in Wonderland for Bradford Museums and Galleries....we like to delight and surprise.
Although we have closed our shops, which were about an 'experience, an adventure and an unusual perspective on life', our ethos is still all about being non-mass market; about appreciating the small details; and about embracing the eccentricities and character of all things vintage and handmade. Our second shop, Rose & Brown Vintage Home which was dedicated to vintage and antique furniture and homewares sought to inspire and beguile, demonstrating the art of vintage style in interiors. With our events, we continue to burn the torch for vintage, and for non-mass market - and for all that is beautiful and unique, from the marvellous stock that our stallholders bring you, to the music that we choose to complement the events, it's all about owning a point of view and recognising the people and the things that have personality and soul...
