Aren't cars more middle class than bikes these days anyway? Look at cities like bogota where they do this every week, it is fantastic for families and kids to go out and play in the streets and not worry about getting killed.

If this was a community event it would be somewhere like nelson gardens as Karen mentioned. This is for people from suburbia and beyond who will drive here just like they do for the skyride.
We have the skyride and bermondsey street festival already it's not adding anything new.
The people organising it tried to commandeer Southwark street last year, yards from the traffic free Thames path, they thought it would be good to shut a major road for people to have a bit of a walk...they're not the brightest pennies..
Thanks again for letting me know I have no rights to a voice in my own neighbourhood.
