Our Big Thrifty Thanks go to…

From 20 July – 24 August 2016 we embarked on a crowdfunding campaign. We raised £2,963 for this year’s Festival. All donations will be used to keep the Festival admission FREE and to add to our programme of activities and artists, making the Festival even more engaging and accessible to all.

These lovely folks have supported us by pledging their support.  Thank you from the Festival of Thrift Team.

Business Sponsors are

Mercy MiddlesbroughSembcorp UK & Cleveland College of Art & Design.
