Curated by Ashton and Hayward and sponsored by Vauxhall Motors, the event will take place on 19 June and will feature the works of some of Britain’s best artists including Marcus Harvey, Chantal Joffe, and Gavin Turk. 

Visitors will enjoy food and drink courtesy of Ox-heart buns, St John's Bread and Wine, and the Southampton Arms, as well as entertainment from The Bethnal Green Working Men's Club.

Curator and director of Posted – a project using art to celebrate post and the dying art of letter writing – Julia Royse will be collaborating with emerging artist duo The Girls to transform a Vauxhall postal van into a shrine to the UK’s postal heritage.

Various Vauxhall vehicles have also been commissioned by Catlin Art Prize curator Justin Hammond, art magazine Turps Banana, and Penguin Classics.

The full line-up is due to be announced in mid April.
