Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You all know we love to reuse, so couldn’t resist reusing our favourite word of the day … thank you!
Well that’s it for another year. We can safely say that the 2nd Festival of Thrift was a storming success with 40,000 people visiting Lingfield Point over the course of the weekend. The atmosphere was amazing and we thank everyone for coming along and taking part, bringing the Festival to life in so many different ways.
Thank you to:
Our sponsors and partners from across the region for providing the resources and expertise to make the Festival happen
Our amazing artists and craftspeople, bringing thrifty to life in so many clever and creative ways
Our speakers, demonstrators and collaborators for providing amazing performances, fashion shows, drop in sessions, and advice
Our volunteers for giving us their time and energy, we couldn’t have done it without you
Our stall holders for coming along and showing and selling such thrifty and sustainable wares
Our workshops leaders for sharing such an array of talents and expertise
We couldn’t have delivered the Festival without the fantastic support of Darlington Borough Council and Creative Darlington – delivering on such a wide variety of levels – a task made easy thanks to our wonderful pro-active partnership
And lastly but not least, the Lingfield Point staff and residents for their unwavering support and generosity.
