Swingamajig Bazaar – Birmingham on April 30th, 2017.
Nestled deep under Digbeth’s atmospheric rail way arches, this multi-venue event has it all, from seven stages, to hidden speakeasies, a street food market and a vintage bazaar.
The stellar musical line up reflects the cultural melting pot of the city itself, from gypsy jazz to Balkan beats, jungle DJs and of course a healthy dollop of traditional and electro swing.
What makes this truly a show like no other are the extra elements, from cabaret and burlesque to internationally recognized dance acts and workshops. Swingamajig attracts an incredible 4,000 strong crowd of devoted party-goers who span the generations, dress to kill and create an inclusive atmosphere where almost anything goes!
New to 2017 is the Swingamajig Bazaar, a vintage/craft market with streetfood, as well as a load of free activities, games, dance worhshops and more. Developing a quirky and alternative family friendly space, and the perfect way to spend your Sunday morning/afternoon.
The bazaar will take place in the street as well as inside Spotlight/Mamma Rouxs/be accessible to all – you don’t need to buy a ticket for the festival to come to the market so alongside the 4,000 people expected at Swingamajig Festival, we will expect more people to come specifically for the market. The vintage market will run from 11am – 6pm. At which point the market closes to the public to allow for the derig, while the festival continues next door into the night.
For traders there are two options in the vintage Bazaar, trading from 11:00 – 18:00
1) 2x2m covered pitch, this is either inside one of the venues or underneath the marquee. Priced at £25 – please bring your own tables and rails
2) Gazebo outside (max 3×4.5m) – these are places in prime position so everyone will see it on the way in to the event. Priced at £40 (please bring your own gazebo, tables, and rails)
There is also the option to have a Gazebo within the festival itself trading from 2pm until 2am. These are priced at £60 per Gazebo and if you are interested in trading at the festival itself – just get in touch to let us know. This is most suitable for things like face painting, dress up and that sort of thing.
