Whereas Britain is home to the humble car boot sale, America offers the ‘flea market’ – basically the same thing as a car boot sale but bigger and with less haggling. Perhaps aware that bringing cars and their aforementioned boots into Soho wouldn’t be a great idea, a day has been arranged for central London to embrace the flea market, all in the name of charity.
From fashion to furniture designers, glass sculptors to games developers; all will be exhibiting and selling their works at ‘creative market stalls’ the length and breadth of Dean Street. There will also be musical showcases from new artists on the City Showcase outdoor stage.
Businesses in and around Dean Street are supporting the event which promises to be one of the coolest street parties of the summer. Supporting businesses include Soho Estates, The Groucho Club, The Soho House Group, The Hart Group, Dean Street Studios and Blacks.
