Vintage Cars and Clothes: Classic Car Boot Sale is back at Kings Cross

The Classic Car Boot Sale is back at King’s Cross on the 27th and 28th of April.

Open from 10 am till 6 pm across Granary Square, Lewis Cubitt Square, and Coal Drops Yard, this festival promises quality sustainable shopping, entertainment, and much more.

This year, vintage and preowned enthusiasts will get to see a specially curated selection of Ford Mustangs and muscle cars to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang.

Wayne Hemingway, founder of HemingwayDesign and co-founder of The Classic Car Boot Sale, said: “We see London’s best-dressed vintage, environmentally conscious and alternative crowd, and a famous face or two, who come to town to bag themselves some unique, second-hand finds.”

Entry costs £7 and children under 12 can enter for free.

Coal Drops Yard will once again host Charity Super.Mkt after it returns home from a successful national tour.

Shoppers will see the very best vintage finds from charities such as North London Hospice, Vision Foundation, St Joseph Hospice, Five Sister Charity Shops, Fara, Haven’s Hospices, Traid, Shaw Trust, Age Uk, and many more.

Eco-conscious shoppers can also benefit from tips from upcycling experts at the Repair Fair between midday and 6 pm.

Hemingway said: “The classic car boot sale isn’t just about youth culture and fashion, it’s about purpose and the environment.”

There will also be an opportunity to become part of a national social history archive. 

Visitors can bring vintage objects or photos to be scanned into the Museum of Youth Culture Studio and be digitalised for the future.

Pre-1990 vehicles from cars, campervans, scooters, classic motorbikes, and custom bicycles will be on display.

Visitors will have the chance to see a previously unseen replica of John Lennon’s Rolls Royce Phantom with its psychedelic paintwork.

The Beatles arrived in the car for their OBE ceremony at Buckingham Palace in October 1965.

The weekend’s music includes a host of DJ collectives, female-fronted rockabilly band The Obscuritones, and tribute act The Bootleg Jam.

You can book your tickets here.
