The point about this two-day vintage festie from designer Wayne Hemingway is that it doesn’t really matter if you’re not a massive fan of the automobile. Sure, it helps to dig all things four (or even two) wheeled, with more than a hundred rare cars, buses and historic bike displays.
But there are also cultural attractions aplenty: oodles of street theatre, some TFL buskers and a whole load of impromptu musical performances, complete with DJs spinning a vinyl-only selection of tunes from the 1940s-80s atop an open-air Routemaster bus.
For orally-fixated souls, there’s the opportunity to scoff and booze at some of the best stalls in the capital too – well, this is King’s Cross, home of KERB after all.
After stuffing yourself silly – washed down, of course, with a cocktail or craft beer – why not hit the Best of Britannia’s pop-up marketplace? There’ll be a carefully curated selection of the best British manufactured goods and products.
The festival is very easy to find too: it flows up from Pancras Square, along King’s Boulevard, through Granary Square and onto the recently opened Lewis Cubitt Square. There’s even a leafy park behind to catch some rays – if the pesky sun obliges.
