A mini festival that celebrates classic vehicles, fashion, design, music and food, all for a fiver
Revel in 60’s and modernist culture as the Classic Car Boot Sale swings into action at King’s Cross on 27-28th April 2019. 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 hundreds of traders selling preloved fashion, homewares alongside designer-makers, prints, jewellery, art, accessories, craft beer and cocktails, excellent street food, and not forgetting the headturning classic vehicles.
This year with the 40th anniversary of the film, Quadrophenia , there will be a nudge to this decade of revolution in politics, music and society with a focus on 1960’s including legendary DJ Eddie Pillar plus very special guests, a scooter ride in and much more.
It is not just all about knowing your Mary Quant from Ben Sherman, all other eras of fashion and lifestyles will be represented by our traders, selling from an assortment of gleaming classic cars and plenty to see and do for the whole family.

The newly opened Coal Drops Yard will become a vehicle showroom for the weekend, celebrating the joys of all things three wheeled. A specially curated exhibition of Reliant Robins with stunning stained glass windows by artist Stuart Langley, one of which chronicles the industrial heritage of the North East from deep in the coal mine to Sir Antony Gormley’s iconic testament to a positive future – the Angel of the North. This links with the coal mining past of Kings Cross, as the cars are displayed in the actual yards that once housed the coal shipped around the country. The other windows depict rock n roll stars to royalty. These will be surrounded by more three wheeled wonders including the rare bright orange 60’s Bond Bugs and who can forget the yellow peril, that was Del Boy Trotters trusted ride which featured in the comedy series ‘Only Fools and Horses’.
Other exceptional vehicles having a spit and polish include a very rare 1965 Buick Riviera, London’s Afro Classics Club will be joining the fun with their selection Ford Cortina to Sunbeams, whilst Dream Cars provide the American classic muscles cars to drool over. Hoping not to leave visitors teetering on the edge of the market, will be the world’s most famous bus – Harrington Legionnaire which appears on the 50th anniversary of the British comedy caper film, The Italian Job.
Bringing motoring right up to date with sustainable cars will be London Electric Car Company and their range of clean and green but still powerful classics.
A pair of beautiful 1960s American Airstreams will create ‘wellbeing area’ with demonstration throughout the day. Plus the chance to tidy your mop top or trim your pixie cut with Douce and Heilsa Therapies will be relaxing the shoulders of the serious shoppers and offering a free head massage workshop in their multifunctional, therapy room housed in their retro caravan.

There is even the chance to bring out your inner Andy Warhol with a free drop-in drawing workshop with a fabulous sixties model resting against a MG MGA 1600 Mk1 roadster, courtesy of London Fine Art Studios.

The suited and booted shoppers will be entertained by swinging sounds from the Routemaster Bar Bus, which always draws a crowd to shimmy, twist and mash potato throughout the day and there are ample opportunities to enjoy a relaxing lunch and drinks with friends, with the street-food market and bars.
