Just a typical Thursday night at House of Vans London… having a bit of house party with a few Nintendo old school guests…

Thursday 2nd June 2016 marked the release of Vans new Nintendo line of shoes and apparel. Lollipop Geek was there for launch night to check out the fantastic new range and the interactive exhibition being held at the House of Vans in London. The exhibition has retro games, Nintendo remixes, and of course the brand new range of shoes! You can also explore the rest of the House of Vans and see the skate park, the history of Vans and have a drink or some food in the bar. The exhibition is well worth even a short visit.

If you want to check out the exhibition for yourself, head down to the House of Vans near Waterloo station, the exhibition is on until the 16th of June.
