Festival of Thrift

Family festival Kirkleatham, Redcar, Tees Valley, TS10 5NW All Day Free entry, pre-bookable workshops £3-£20

Celebrate sustainable living, that is the essence of the much loved and growing Festival of Thrift. Each Festival of Thrift attracts thousands of visitors and it's especially good for families and inspiring kids to be the next generation of waste warriors.

Alongside ethical traders, planet-friendly food stalls and upcycling demos, this year’s Festival of Thrift features an Oxglam catwalk showcasing the joy to be found in second hand garms. It’s the place to soak up important life lessons like how to cultivate a passion for fashion that doesn’t cost the earth. 

Look out for the series of temporary artworks dotted around Tees Valley to mark this year’s clean air theme.
