The Festival of Thrift takes place due to the generosity of supporting companies and organisations.

There are lots of reasons for becoming a Festival of Thrift partner, from reaching our visitors at the Festival, through our marketing and PR activity or for social responsibility reasons or staff volunteering opportunities. We tailor packages for companies to meet individual requirements. For more information drop us a line at or download. FoT Partnership Opportunities 2018 (PDF)

If you want to be a partners we will tailor a package for you, or look at these examples…

– £5k to be the company credited with producing the world-premier of Atonement Redux.
– £3k will get our Tees Valley banner-makers to London and back (to take part in PROCESSIONS).
– £3k to support the launch parade on 21 September.
– £5k to help relocate The Town is the Menu to a new site at the Festival.

In 2017 we had over 45,000 visitors bringing with them a economic value of £840k.  Find out more about the impact of the 2017 Festival in our FoT 2017 Annual Report.(PDF)
