Nowhere else in Sydney offers this much bang for your buck

The Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Christmas Market returns to Manning House on December 1st 2013.

This anticipated Christmas event will play host to over 70 high-quality market stalls; a massive entertainment line-up, featuring talented local acts and DJs; a celebrated Elvis Presley Photo Exhibition; a vintage car display, and loads more!

Kicking off at 10:30am, the family-friendly event will house a vast range of merchandise in one convenient location, including rock 'n' roll, alternative and vintage fashion for men, women & children; pin-up hair, make-up, jewellery & accessories; pre-loved and new vinyl, CDs & DVDs; vintage comics, books & art; and retro & unique homewares.

Complementing the market are two major attractions;

The first is Nicholson Presents "Images of the King", an Elvis Presley Photo Exhibition showcasing over 140 photos of The King of Rock 'n' Roll taken by Ed Bonja Elvis's Tour Manager and official photographer between 1970 and 1977.

These photos have only ever been displayed in Australia twice; on the Gold Coast and in Newcastle. This will be Sydney's one and only chance to see these extraordinary images before the exhibition heads to the US next year.

The second highlight is of-course, the entertainment line-up - which includes a rare appearance from The Satellites, who were voted 'Australia's Best Rockabilly Band' (Wintersun Festival) and have appeared at countless national and international festivals and played with many touring greats.

Also forming part of the entertainment program are Little Bastard, a 7 piece punk-string band, incorporating guitars, bass, fiddle, banjo, harmonica and mandolin; Danny & the Cosmic Tremors, who combine an authentic 1950's rockabilly feel, with an individual style and energy all of their own; and up-tempo blues outfit, Coral Lee & the Silver Scream.

Accompanying, live acts will be a great selection of DJs, including DJs Rod Almighty, Jack Sh*t, Andy Travers, The Rockabilly Rhino plus MCs Wolfman Dan & the Rockabilly Rhino.

A range of international food traders will be located in the Tiki bar courtyard plus the onsite bars, cafe and bistro will be open. Families of young children can also take advantage of the dedicated children's area.

Entry is just $5 with kids under 12 admitted for free!

Whether you are looking for a unique gift for a loved one, an eclectic outfit for the party season or just a great family day out - the Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Christmas Market is the perfect Christmas event.
