Classic Car Boot Sale moves into Granary Square, 28-29th April 2018

A mini festival that celebrates classic vehicles, fashion, design, music and food all for a fiver

Posted: Wednesday 14th March 2018

Vehicles that thrill and fabulous “threads for less” are available by the boot load as the Classic Car Boot Sale parks up in Granary Square, King’s Cross, London on 28th and 29th April 2018. 

Forget the traditional stereotype of a car boot sale in a muddy field or windswept outpost, the Classic Car Boot Sale embraces the best preloved fashion, homewares, cutting edge designer makers, along with a huge display of head turning pre 1989 classic cars, bikes and commercial vehicles to admire in the heart of one of the most exciting areas of London.

The mini festival for a fiver will be open daily from 10am – 6pm and this April takes over the stunning Granary Square as well as West Handyside Canopy, making it centre stage at one of London’s most exciting redevelopments.

Keeping an eye on sustainable transport, Bspoke, the ultimate bike bazaar is back this year – a collection of urban cyclists, classic and vintage bicycle enthusiasts, custom-built bike builders, independent makers, designers, producers of fabulous small-batch goods as well as stylish individuals having a spring clean.

Throughout the weekend make sure to look out for impromptu live musical performances, DJs spinning a selection of 40s to 80s tunes and even the chance to get your haircut at a vintage salon.  For those brave enough there will be the opportunity to test your bicycle skills on everything from a mini penny farthing, to a bone shaker and the latest unique custom built bicycles.

The Classic Car Boot Sale salutes beautifully designed cars paired with the best vintage traders, upcyclers and designer makers all set to a soundtrack of  vinyl spinning DJs whose stage will be an iconic London double decker bus, along with great street food, bars and a dancefloor to shimmy in your new threads.

Co-founder Wayne Hemingway comments: “It is simply amazing  to see  how people of all  ages  react to tables crammed full of curated vintage , homewares,  records and stylish Londoner’s cast offs .  The evocative classic vehicles and the cracking stories their owners tell us transports us into another world and brings out the design historian in all of us.  We never expected such intensity of emotion from running an event and that is why we love doing it.”
