Vintage car enthusiasts are gearing up for this year's Classic Car Boot Sale in London.

More than 8,000 people attended the inaugural event held at the Southbank Centre last year. And organisers are promising that this year's event will be even bigger and better when it returns to the same venue over the weekend of March 15 and 16.

A range of vintage goods will be on offer, from clothing to household accessories and other memorabilia such as vinyl records. Classic car owners are invited to come along and sell their own items from the boot of their vehicles.Wayne Hemmingway's Classic Car Boot Sale returns to London in March

Traders and owners of campers, vintage vans, vintage motorbikes and scooters will also be able to trade their finest vintage items.

Those attending the event can expect to see VW campervans and vintage bicycles, iconic cars like the Ford Mustang and an ex-US Navy 1942 Chevrolet Style Master.

Vintage style-spotters will be on site over the course of the weekend, in a bid to spot the most stylish car booters. Best In Show judges will hand out prizes for the Best Dressed, Best Car and Best Vintage Trader.

The show will also offer vintage-themed food and music including the Vintage Festival DJs, as well as street food, fairground rides, slideshows, impromptu musical performances and street theatre.

Organiser Wayne Hemingway said: “Last year’s first ever Classic Car Boot Sale was a huge success and there’s something for everyone to enjoy - with classic vehicles trading the finest vintage items and London’s best street food on wheels. This year is only going to get bigger and better with a whole weekend at London’s Southbank Centre promising all manner of vintage fun.”

The Classic Car Boot Sale takes place along the riverfront at Southbank Centre between the Queen’s Walk, Hungerford Bridge and Jubilee Gardens.
