Who’s behind it?

The Festival of Thrift was first developed back in 2012, coming to fruition in 2013 with the first ever Festival of Thrift taking place at Lingfield Point in Darlington.

In 2015 we set up a Festival of Thrift Community Interest Company, retaining the original members of the team.
