Artist: Gavin Turk

Last year we posted the Vauxhall Art Carboot on our blog in celebration of artist talent here in the UK. In the midst of up-coming British cultural events with the Olympics and the Queen‘s Jubilee; Design and Creativity here in the UK will be undoubtedly fierce. Our experience at the fair last year was amazing, last year’s event attracted around 5,000 visitors during the six hour event with queues forming the day before leading to a line-up of 1,000 people by the time doors opened! we went with little one in tow, although busy we were able to manoeuvre our buggy. We found each bootee offered something a little different to suit all pockets from the exclusive, unique to high end collectable art. What is great about the one day event it allows artists to let their hair down and for visitors to engage with art and the artists in an informal way, last year we bumped into Tracey Emin who was personable and happy to engage in an impromptu photo opportunity with our very own Michael Mapp view here

This year the organisers have introduced the Handbag disco, a small fee will provide you with varied entertainment and the chance to win a designer bag worth thousands of pounds, all profits raised will be donated to the award winning charity Just for Kids Law- raising money for disadvantaged children who find themselves in trouble with the law.

This a great event to add to your event calendar!
Look out for event updates at  on more famous artists who’ll be taking part along with details on activities and exclusive pieces to be on offer this year.
