Co-founder Wayne Hemingway comments:

“We are so pleased to announce this year’s King’s Cross CCBS and our first ever live broadcast from award winning Soho Radio with such a great selection of DJ’s , I am sure our fun loving crowd will enjoy. It is also great to support projects like The Karma Impala – which offers a unique way to spread an important message through the use of live street art. There is so much to see and do and another highlight will be the display from the unusual monowheel which should get hearts racing and bring a smile to everyone’s face”.

Wayne continues, “The CCBS offers something for everyone with the mix of fabulous free entertainment, a host of stalls offering an eclectic mix of vintage, upcycled and uniquely designed goodies. It is a place to celebrate music, food, fashion, design and of course the eye candy that is classic cars, bikes and commercial vehicles.”
