Midcentury Modern show back in Dulwich this weekend


Fans of the mid-century look who are about in London this weekend will be delighted to hear that the ever popular Midcentury Modern show is back in Dulwich this Sunday 21 March. 

Always worth a browse, the show will contain the usual mix of sellers of the real thing, ranging across furniture, textiles, art, ceramics and glass, combined with contemporary designers such as People Will Always Need Plates and Tracy Kendall whose work is sympathetic to the period. 

As an added bonus, the show is held in the 60s designed concrete and glass refectory of Dulwich College, pictured. Prices range from £10 up to £5000 but bitter experience tells me that the more affordable pieces are snapped up early. The show is open from 10am until 4pm, with entrance costing £6.
