House of Vans – Manchester
Vans, (in collaboration with Black Sheep Skate Store), brought a pop up House of Vans to Manchester. Doors opened on the Deansgate venue with a gig on a Friday, with Saturday’s main event hosting a variety of obstacles including a mini ramp and small street area. Other attractions included a small exhibition on the history of the SK8-HI, fantastic coffee and food stalls, an embroidery workshop and, to the delight of many a cash strapped skateboarder; free waffles.
A skate school hosted by the Pumpcage crew started things off; with a mix of beginners and those taking their first pushes on that day. The session was packed with helmet-clad kids darting about and making their first attempts at the basics while parents inspected the other areas on offer.
This hopefully elaborated on Vans’ wider creative reach and intrigued those parents who may have been concerned about what they were letting themselves in for by encouraging their kids to pick up a skateboard that day.
