Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy all that London has to offer, and what better way than heading down to the Classic Car Boot Sale in Granary Square at King’s Cross, on 18-19 August 2018.
This magnificent public space is just a five minute walk from King’s Cross station, and for two days, it will be choc-a-block with British design. The event will feature hundreds of traders selling an eclectic selection of prints, jewellery, art, vintage fashion, accessories, homewares, curated designer collections and an excellent food market, all trading from an assortment of classic vehicles.
Classic cars are not the only vehicles that will be on display – there is a special section, Bspoke showcasing historic and custom bikes – and there will be daily ride-ins by local London Mods and Rockers to witness.
The Incredibly Clever Canine Circus will join the Classic Car Boot Sale for the first time with a thrilling participative show and they will also be offering four legged friends and their owners the opportunity to learn tricks from a professional trainer. Meanwhile, crafty fun can be enjoyed with The Culture Cart, who will be running printing workshops from a bike. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for other art activities, special performances and so much more.
There are ample opportunities to enjoy a relaxing lunch and drinks with friends, courtesy of the streetfood market which will be packed with delicious artisan food and craft beer. Make sure to also pay a visit to the fresh produce market to shop for weekly treats and staples.
Throughout the day until sunset, the canalside will be bathed in the very best uplifting tunes thanks to DJs spinning records on top of a London Routemaster Bus, as savvy shoppers grab a bargain and check out the amazing architecture of the square
Classic Car Boot Sale provides a generous nod to nostalgia and embraces designer makers and forward thinking originators. What better way of celebrating British Summertime than with a staycation in London’s newest creative district.
The mini family-friendly festival is open from 10am-6pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Entry costs just £5, and for kids under 12 it is free. The Classic Car Bot Sale will spread all the way up from Granary Square, along the canalside and to Lewis Cubitt Square, where you can cool down in the fountains.
