The 'UK's best Vintage Fair' hits the Sackville Street building.

On Saturday vintage fashion lovers flocked to UoM’s Sackville Street building for Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair. We went down to see what was on offer.

Lou Lou's Vintage Fair

Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair

The UK’s largest vintage fair & winner of ‘Best Vintage Fair in the UK’ held a scaled down version of their famous vintage fair which featured 30 stalls of fashion. There was definitely enough for you to scavenge your winter wardrobe from, without the jumble sale feel!


Lots of bargains!

There was plenty to rummage through, with row upon row of fur coats, Christmas jumpers, and sparkly dresses.



Feeling festive?

There was also a great range of accessories, with lots of hats and bags, including this odd find…


Unusual indeed.

For those who had somewhere more exciting to head to after the fair, there was also a Vintage Hair & Beauty salon by ‘Le Keux’. We definitely look forward to the full experience when Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair returns to Whitworth Hall!

    Oh where to start with the factual inaccuracies in this article…

    Nottingham Trent Students’ Union have been working in partnership with Guide Dogs in response to a Big Idea submitted by a Nottingham Trent University student at the start of the academic year. Guide Dogs offered to support the cause as this activity can actually form part of the puppies’ training, as they need to be socialised and accustomed to a wide range of venues before they start their working life as a Guide Dog. Some older, working dogs were also present with their owners so that students could see where their money was going, hear the benefits that Guide Dogs give their owners, and the dogs had some time being spoiled, outside of their normal routine.

    As a side, you might be interested to know that dogs are considered puppies until they stop growing which, in Labradors and alike, is around the 18-24 month stage. I’m sorry to have to break it to you but that does mean that puppies can’t always be held in your arms as you might like to imagine.

    Students partaking of the Puppy Room were asked to donate to the cause, to thank the charity for their support. To date, grateful Nottingham Trent students have donated over £3,900. In fact the SU are still collecting donations (http://www.justgiving.com/PuppyRoom) and students have recently voted for Guide Dogs to be NTSU’s Charity of the Year 2014/15.

    All of this information could have been garnered from reading the range of professional press coverage on the Puppy Room. You know, the sort of journalism that involves research, balanced viewpoints and does not resort to swearing.

    And whilst we’re attacking people’s proofreading skills, I think you’ll find it is “Students’ Union”: the Union belonging to many students.

    Why ask a load of freshers who didn’t experience the hell that was ExCel? Olympia was a breeze in comparison.

    Well I think what we have learned from this is people will complain about exams no matter the setting and we should all just get on with it.

    What’s the point on comparing the new venue to the old one if the people interviewed never went to the previous one?

    Who cares if it was stressfull .. it’s an exam! Of course it’s stressful and it always will be wherever KCL pick. It will never be good enough for any student will it.
