In 2015 we set up a Festival of Thrift Community Interest Company, retaining the original members of the team. A community interest company is a special type of limited company which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders. It is ‘not for profit’ which means that any surplus created by the event is ploughed back in to next year’s event.
So who’s behind it?
Stella Hall – Festival Director
Wayne & Gerardine Hemingway – Co-founder
John Orchard – Co-founder
David Bilton – Operations Director
Alicia Carroll – Artist Liason
