Visitors to the annual art fair will get to dance around the ultimate handbag pile—a mountain of bags hidden in cloth covers, with a designer bag buried somewhere in the stack. When the ‘70s tunes stop, all the disco dancers will grab a bag and see if they’ve won one of the coveted designs.
The £10 ticket price to the Handbag Disco benefits Just for Kids Law, a charity that offers support, advice and representation to disadvantaged young people. With donations from Victoria Beckham, Balenciaga, Matches, Sophie Dahl, Lulu Guinness, Mary Charteris and more, it’s sure to be a case of doing good leading to looking good, too.
The Art Car Boot Fair is a fixture of the annual art calendar. Bob and Roberta Smith, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin Studios, Pam Hogg and other designers will sell limited-edition works from the boots of classic and vintage cars—meaning you’ll have plenty of opportunities to fill your brand new bag.
Visit the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair this Sunday 27 May at Brick Lane Yard, on the corner of Brick Lane and Buxton Street, London E1, from 12-6pm. Tickets are £3 on the door.
