WHAT IS THRIFT? – Thrift is not just about making do, it’s about being creative and mindful and it covers all areas of life. It’s about growing, sharing and preparing food; sharing resources with friends and neighbours; restyling and upcycling items which have had their day and fixing things which are broken. Thrift covers fashion, technology, homes, food and learning and is fast becoming big business. The Festival of Thrift brings it all together in a fun, creative weekend for all the family. We all have a responsibility to live lightly on our planet.


Thank you!  Let’s grow this Festival!
