Take trike trip to Vauxhall

IF you fancy nipping around London on a vintage Dutch tricycle, wander along to Vintage Vauxhall on Sunday, March 12. That’s the day this new London monthly market launches at The Workshop, an arts events space on the Albert Embankment.

The trike will be for sale at Vintage Vauxhall for £3750 with architectural salvage dealer Retrouvius. Adam Hills, director of the firm in Kensal Green, north-west London, says: “We will be filling the bike’s box with design letters, lighting, textiles, stools, ironmongery, butterflies in boxes, and so on, and selling these at prices from £50 to £200.”

Plenty of contemporary arts buzz can be detected in the Vauxhall area, including Damien Hirst’s six-room Newport Gallery and the contemporary arts space that is the Beaconsfield Art Gallery.

Meanwhile, Counter is London’s longest restaurant, housed in a 200-foot long arch.

Vintage Vauxhall is sister event to the BathVA – the Vintage & Decorative Antiques Market. It is the brainchild of Naomi Knight, who runs that monthly Bath fair.
