The Cinemoi Can Can Girls will be at the event providing the opportunity to smash crockery at their Boules in a China Shop. Lucy Parker and Vivienne Westwood model Sarah Stockbridge will help you turn yourself into a human snow shaker.

Artist Marty Thronton will be presenting a Big Fat Gypsy Fortune Teller in the back of a van. This year will for the first time see the Art Improvement Clinic, which invites visitors to bring along any artwork they don't like, and have it improved by a team of famous and emerging talents.

The East London event will also include Gavin Turk, Bob and Roberta Smith, Oliver Guy Watkins, Jessica Voorsanger, Pure Evil, Pete Fowler, Jessica Albarn, and Guts for Garters who will all be selling works of art from their own car boots.
