Price £5

The UK's most anarchic and anachronistic art fair is back in South London.

All the participants at the fair are invited or recommended by other booters and, unlike any other art fair, there is no financial transaction between the artist and the organisers.

2017 is the year it gets a re-boot with a theme of The Original.

Creator Karen Ashton, a curator, independent art consultant and writer, says "The whole idea when we started was to kick against the increasing commercialisation of the post Saatchi London art market in 2004 and we feel that the boot fair has itself become a bit commercial and been dulled as a result so we’re refreshing it, moving to a new area and making sure everyone who is invited makes artworks and wares or provides special art services just for the day. .... Expect lots of serious art bargains as always, boots of originals, plus masses of frivolous goings-on, less endless ‘limited editions’ and more of the art world really letting its hair down and trying out new things on an engaged and fun art-loving crowd."
