The Art Car Boot Fair | Hastings Edition with Jerwood Gallery on The Stade

Supported by Vauxhall Motors and the Arts Council of England
Saturday 16th July, 12-4pm, £3


Drawn by the sea, the light, the net lofts, rhapsodic bohemian sensibilities and the spirit of pirate smugglers  - and thanks to the generous invitation of Jerwood Gallery - we will be gliding into Hastings town this July with the artworld’s most exuberant event. For one afternoon only!

Our art convoy will be making its way through the vibrant streets of cool cycle shops, designer beard trimmers and shops bursting with re-found classics to set up outside the oily lustre of Jerwood Gallery to bring an afternoon of unforgettable art and frivolity to The Stade. Car boots will be flung open, overflowing with local and London talents including an exciting new collaboration with Marcus Harvey whose exhibition opens that very day in Jerwood Gallery. Plus Hastings exclusive prints from Sir Peter Blake, Tracey Emin, Keith Coventry, Gavin Turk, plus a talking Chicken Town hand- print from John Cooper Clarke and just for the day hand painted album covers containing the latest vinyl release from Turner prize winning artist Martin Creed & band who will also be performing live as as part of an exciting and eclectic three hour cabaret from Cabaret Futura’s inimitable Richard Strange.


A myriad of random performances and happenings besides and fresh from a hands down success at our London event in June we’ll be continuing our 2016 ACBF theme of ‘The Hand’ with ever more clapping, spanking and ticklings of your cultural fancy. Something for everyone and plenty more besides!
