Classic Car Boot Sale

Now on its sixth event, The Classic Car Boot Sale is trundling into King's Cross for another photogenic shopping opportunity. Carefully chosen traders will be flogging everything from vintage clothing to craft beer from some very handsome pre-1989 vehicles. There'll be lots of period dress to admire plus music, dance and entertainment for when your pocket money's run dry. Even the street food traders will come in extra special rides – Le Swine are bringing their 60s ambulance and MyPie will roll up in a Bedford van. If you happen to own a vintage (pre-1989) vehicle – cars, motorbikes, vans, even bicycles are welcome - and have wares to peddle (vintage clothing and accessories, snazzy cocktails, craft beers or street snacks) you'll be in demand: register with a photo on the Classic Car Boot website.

Tank Party

At Camden Town Brewery the beer is always locally sourced, but for one day (a year) only they're not even bothering to put it in barrels or bottles before letting us drink it. Their Camden Hells Lager will flow unfiltered from their 60 hectolitre tank (equivalent to 10,000 pints) and 2016 also boasts an additional tank full of Pale Ale. Street food, live music, free brewery tours, face painting and balloon animals for little ones plus a live mural making session curated by Beach London will all feature. Entry is free, but sadly the beer isn't.

Wild Brunch Club

Join the expert lads from Mac & Wild on a trip through a London park to see what wilderness there is for the eating. Forager John Rensten will talk you through what to pick and how to use it, then the group will head back to the Fitzrovia restaurant for a wild brunch (the Scottish breakfastincludes white pudding, lorne sausage and homemade tatty scones) and a cocktail masterclass, which will make use of the goods you've gathered.

Sustainable Department Store

Shopping ethical and green labels can be time-consuming - and it's rare that you get a chance to do it offline, too. But all that's about to change in Dulwich this month, when a pop-up department store takes over a secret spot on the high street. Shop homewares, stationery, clothes, food and everything in between - all in time for Christmas.
