SUNDAY 24th AUGUST

Annual Fifties Fair at Rose Seidler House

 

Step back in time as Australia’s iconic 1950s home, Rose Seidler House, celebrates its roots with classic cars,

 dancing demonstrations, a fabulous fashion parade and stalls brimming with authentic 50s wares.

Put on your Sunday best and be seen at Rose Seidler House, home of the Fifties Fair.

This year, we’re proud to feature Rusty Pinto’s Shotdown from Sugartown, who will be travelling from Perth for an exclusive Sydney performance.

Shotdown from Sugartown is Perth’s rawest rockabilly and honky-tonk blues band, fronted by internationally recognised blues and rockabilly vocalist Rusty Pinto with double bassist Jay McIvor and guitarist Jon Matthews. Rusty has toured extensively across Australia and has performed in England, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Italy and the US. Shotdown from Sugartown wowed audiences at the 2013 Camperdown Cruise Rockabilly Weekender in Victoria, and they are now working on their first album.

Pat Capocci will also rock the Fifties Fair stage with their blend of western swing, jazz, country and blues. Local Sydney boy and one of Australia’s most respected practitioners of rockabilly and roots music, Pat Capocci performs regularly throughout Europe and in Australia, and has played alongside some of the most respected international artists, including Deke Dickerson, Big Sandy, Imelda May and Justin Townes Earle. Known for his energy and passion, Pat is a Fifties Fair favourite and returns in 2014 fresh from his debut gig at Viva Las Vegas in April and a European tour.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s 2013 ‘Chef of the Year’ winners, Porteño’s Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz, will be firing up the burners again with a menu inspired by traditional Argentinian barbecues. They’ll also be cooking up some delicious options for vegetarians.

You can shop for the finest in 50s fashion, furniture and vintage wares from over 15 leading dealers, get styled by Sterling Hair, our in-house barber shop, or get pampered at the Fifties Fair hair and beauty salon.

Come dressed in your best 1950s threads and join in our fabulous fashion parade for the chance to win a prize!

Throughout the day, you can show off your jive and rock’n’roll moves in our dancing demonstrations and admire the classic cars display.

Come inside and marvel at Rose Seidler House, Sydney’s iconic 50s home, with its original furniture and fixtures, and be inspired to create your own vintage dream home.

Getting to the Fifties Fair is easy. We operate a free shuttle bus on the day (all day) between Turramurra Railway Station and Rose Seidler House.

Ticket price includes return shuttle bus from Turramurra Railway Station, entry to Rose Seidler House and the full program of music and entertainment.

The Swing Pit - 2nd and 4th Friday of the Month

Swing Pit occurs on the 2nd and 4th each Friday; a beginner focused night for those who feel they need a bit more confidence in social dancing. All dancers from Beginners to Advanced are most welcome at both events! Swing Pit Live is a great venture where we bring live bands to social dancing at the Swing Pit. Check it out.

 

A little secret hip dance floor in the heart of Newtown. A great mix of music, DJs and dancers. The class before the social night is anchored by different teachers and it is a great way to break the ice and meet some dancers before the evening really gets under way!

If you are a new dancer, go and enjoy watching some of Sydney's finest swing dancers in action.  The Swing Pit has had many international and interstate guests who rave about the vibe and is known as the swing event not to be missed!
 
Each Swing Pit on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month will be beginner focused with classes fun and simple to get those starting off in swing a chance to learn some moves to practice throughout the evening.

 

 

Location: St Stephen's Newtown
189 Church St Newtown (off King)

Class Times: 8.00pm - Swing dancing class open to all levels
