Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair @ Brick Lane Yard, Sunday 9th June 2013

The 10th Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair is set to be an event you wouldn’t want to miss. This one-day festival will feature over 70 renowned artists including Sir Peter Blake, Gavin Turk, Emin International, Polly Morgan, and Pam Hogg, all pitching up to personally sell their original and limited edition works of art at bargain prices.

This is the UK’s hottest annual art fair packed with English eccentricity, quirky ideas, incredible bargains, cool art, eclectic wares and mad performances. Pop stars mingle with fashion designers and actresses rub shoulders with Royalty as all come together to check out the art, hang out at the bar and enjoy the entertainment on offer. There is an artwork priced to suit every pocket too, with works typically on sale for between £10 to £1,000.

As well as being able to snap up a bargain art piece or two, there will be weird and wonderful food available, served up by Animal, Vegetable, Mineral who will be providing sacred tarts, edible hair and inhalable bacon sandwiches. There will be real bacon sandwiches and ox-heart buns from St Johns Bread & Wine, Nude Espresso coffee, and Colony Room Cocktails. Leila’s Shop will bring together a collection of fine produce and artisan food, and Born Hectic Bar will feature resident Frank Sinatra crooner Michael Campari and there will be live Piano Karaoke with Clifford Slapper.
