Weekend Round Up

Vintage gear, head massages for Haiti, salsa festival goes Irish and Amsterdam play. All happening here as springtime kicks in, just about...now

Published on March 19th 2010.


Weekend Round Up
Vintage pointWE ALL LOVE a fashion find, and what better way to fritter away Saturday than by disappearing off and rummaging through stalls of “pre-loved” clothes. Bag a bargain for those Aintree Races or some other sartorially aware event on your horizon.

It's Teabags Vintage Fair and it might be held at the LJMU students union building, but it's not just for students. No, they want to see the colour of grown up money.

All under one roof, organisers promise gorgeous vintage dresses, one off fashion finds, fabulous bespoke jewellery, luxurious cosmetics and jewellery designers who can customise pieces to go with any outfit – with over 20 stalls you’re sure to find everything you could need.

After wondering around plentiful stalls channel your inner Alice and stop for a deliciously traditional afternoon tea. Recharge your batteries and mull over the gorgeous purchases you’ve made before going back for the bargains you can’t leave behind.

*Teabags Vintage fair, LJMU students union building, Maryland St, L1. Admission, £6.50 per person or two for £10. For more info, call 07709 078 405.

Salsa goes diddley-diddleyIT'S TIME TO get the Guinness out again. Yes, that soon after St Patrick's day.

Salsa goes emerald green this weekend when Liverpool's second International Salsa Festival helps raise cash for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

The line up will feature top salsa performers and teachers from the Dominican Republic and Cuba, but with a twist of the Irish. This year, as if the city's revellers had not had enough of recovering from one collective hangover, the two day event has been billed as a St Patrick’s Salsa Weekender.

As well as supporting Unicef’s Haiti Relief Fund the proceeds from the event will also go to Breast Cancer Care.

A Grand Charity Salsa Ball will take place at the University of Liverpool’s Carnatic Halls in Mossley Hill on Saturday night with hundreds of performers and teachers. Newcomers are welome.

Sunday’s programme will include a party at Kingdom in Harrington Street, workshops and an end-of-festival party.

*Liverpool Salsa Festival, March 20-21. Various venues. See See here for more

Message in a massageIF YOU can't be doing with all that jigging and jiggery pokery but still want to do your bit to help the earthquake victims, now receding in the news, this might be for you.

Liverpool Help Haiti have got the scented candles and massage oils out this weekend for Heal Haiti. They are offering treatments to relax the body soothe the mind and celebrate the senses. Reiki, Indian head massage, male grooming and barbering, beauty treatments....we are nodding off already – in a good way.

There will be children’s activities provided by qualified volunteers and prizes to be won at the evening bingo. And all for a minimum donation of £2.50 per treatment.

*Heal Haiti, Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, 4 Princes Road, L8 1TH, 10am-4pm, Saturday March 20. 6pm and 8pm for Bingo. See here for more info.

New AmsterdamIan Prowse's band Amsterdam are always sure to please their homgrown Liverpool crowd, and after a quiet 2009 they are back on Saturday. A magnificent seven, in fact, performing at the O2 Academy.

The band will be previewing fabulous new tunes as well as roaring through old Pele classics and the Amsterdam songs that have made them such a success.

A new album is in the works and the troops are rested and ready to entertain. See old faces and new, and be sure to get a curry in the excellent Maharaja around the corner in London Road afterwards. It's what it's all about.

*Amsterdam. 02 Academy, Hotham Street, L3. Tickets £12 from here
