The fashion designer Wayne Hemingway is to bring his Vintage Festival to Scotland to form a key part of this year's Merchant City Festival.
Organisers of the city centre festival, which runs from July 24 to 28, are hoping its 300 events will attract more than the 95,000 visitors who attended last year. Vintage Glasgow, designed by Mr Hemingway and his wife Gerardine, features music, fashion, film, art, dance and design from the 1920s to the 1980s.
