Ouseburn is going to be filled with clothes, homeware, art and records on Sunday.

This Sunday Ouseburn will play host to an array of ecclectic and original clothing, art and furniture in its first ever vintage crawl.

Across eight venues around the valley there are around 25 vendors supplying second-hand lovers with all of the vintage they could ask for.

The event is Ouseburn Trust’s first in a string of fundraising activities for the rennovation and refurbishment of a new community project at 51 Limestreet. By Autumn, the building is set to be transormed into an event space, co-working space and cultural visitor centre.

Maria Baranowska, marketing and communications manager for the trust, said: “What do you think of when you think of Ouseburn? You think of all of its amazing pubs and all of the amazing creatives, traders and local markets that happen and we wanted to celebrate that and bring people to the valley on a Sunday while also raising the profile of this new project.”

The event will run from 12pm to 5pm and involve The Cluny, The Cumberland Arms, Ernest, The Old Coal Yard, Full Circle Tap Room, Two by Two and The Grove.

The Old Coal Yard will welcome a record shop takeover with Spinning Superiority.

“It’s great to be apart of opening up another cultural space, something for the community, the visitors and the residents and the businesses,” Maria continued.

“There’s a lot of housing going up at the moment and at the trust we want to keep that balance and make sure everything that makes Ouseburn amazing is protected. So this new space is our opportunity to protect an old building and make sure it’s used for something everyone can enjoy for a long time.”
