Are we getting through this period of materialism? Where perfectly good unwanted items are thrown into landfill sites? Items that your next door neighbour would dearly love, that your friend’s daughter would make use of?

Clear out your unwanted items and bring them along. Swap your garden shears for a mason jar, your child’s trike for vintage lace, a floral dress for a box of plants… you can also exchange your knowledge and skills.

This year we will be especially featuring toys, clothes, garden items and plants. Come armed with your items, or the willingness to get involved in swapping. Exchange is the sustainable way forward.

We are also celebrating 190th anniversary of the world’s first steam passenger train between Stockton and Darlington, so bring along train toys and anything railway inspired. Swap It!
