SHOPPING: The Classic Car Boot Sale
Now, we wouldn't ordinarily suggest a day's shopping at a car boot sale. But then, this King’s Cross shindig is no ordinary car boot sale. This is a chance to shop covetable vintage fashion, retro-chic accessories and quirky homewares right from the back of equally covetable vintage classic cars. Plus, there's street food, music and a free warm-up party based around a funk-and-soul-blasting Routemaster bus. And not a broken clock radio or dodgy figurine in sight.
3-4 Oct; £5 Lewis Cubitt Square, King’s Cross, N1C 4UZ classiccarbootsale.co.uk
MUSIC: Kansas Smitty’s Basement Tapes Tour
There is nothing not to love above jazz band Kansas Smitty’s. They've got funk-filled, soul-stuffed sing, clap and shimmy-along tunes. They've got a great big tuba. And hats – they've got awesome hats. And now they're touring the hippest bars in London, meaning you can join in all the jivin' over a well-crafted cocktail or three. Make for The Nightjar next week - or check out kansassmittys.com for full date listings. You won't regret it, we promise.
6 Oct; free The Nightjar, 129 City Road, EC1V 1JB
