Continental’s Easter is of a rare vintage

Preston’s Continental pub sets out to liven up the holiday weekend calendar with the return of Riverside Vintage and their ‘Big Easter Sunday Fair’ this coming weekend.

A regular and popular occurrence at the Continental, Riverside Vintage hosts a number of events at the pub throughout the year, selling one-off vintage designs from local designers accompanied with live music and food, all the while guests enjoy the atmosphere and wind down with a drink or two.

Organisers say this will be the ideal place to find a bargain or meet new people and shop for something you can’t find on the high street.

This year’s event will be taking over the beer garden to bring a number of stalls selling plenty of vintage products; with clothes, cakes, jewellery and other bits and bobs.

In-between taking some time to throw your painted Easter eggs down the hill at the nearby park, there’ll be an opportunity to get your own face ‘painted’ by vintage make-up artist Kiran Mal with her own stall.

The day will also feature a live, unplugged acoustic musical set to fill the afternoon with some relaxing entertainment.

The fair is free to attend, open from 12pm-4pm at the Continental, found next to the river on South Meadow Lane alongside Avenham Park.
