Retro shirt seekers, Dulwich Hamlet supporters and festive football fans seeking a last-minute gift should head to Elephant & Castle’s on Thursday December 21st for a Vintage Football Christmas Market with COPA 90 at Artworks Elephant’s Six Yard Box.
Kicking off at 4pm, visitors to the Six Yard Box bar will be able to enjoy a football flavoured cosy Christmas atmosphere and sample stalls packed with rare shirts, programmes and posters. Fans will also be able to watch COPA 90 football films and purchase one-off cards and t-shirts from the world’s biggest independent football brand.
Sebastian O’Driscoll owner of Six Yard Box commented, “Vintage Football shirts and memorabilia have never been bigger and whether you’re footy mad or just nervously buying a gift for a weird obsessive, our Football Christmas Market at Artworks Elephant is the place for you. With Christmas closing-in, we’ll even be laying on free wrapping paper.”
Box2Box will be selling their range of vintage shirts alongside NWM Football’s bounty of Programmes, Autographed Memorabilia and other football items from past and present.
In recent years, local club Dulwich Hamlet has become one of the best known in non-league football, but are currently fighting a battle off the pitch. The Dulwich Hamlet Supporters Trust will also be on hand at Six Yard Box to speak about their Save Dulwich Hamlet campaign.
Once fans have delved through the mix of vintage jerseys, stickers, posters, books and programmes they can warm themselves up with a festive tipple of Mulled Cider and Wine before enjoying something to eat in Artworks Elephant’s seven courtyard restaurants.
The Vintage Football Christmas Market takes place on December 21st 4pm -10pm at the Artworks Elephant.
