As a community interest company, every penny we make goes back into our programme, which now extends beyond our fabulous festival weekend, to year round community engagement, workshops and activities across Tees Valley. 
We believe that everyone should have their chance to watch, learn, and share ideas and skills around our sustainable future, making the ‘shift to thrift’ through our creative programme.
Please help by donating what you can.

What’s your favourite Thrift memory? 

Making new friends over Town is the Menu? Whittling a spoon? Debating the state of the fishing industry or being inspired by our thrifty fashion show? Seeing the joy on your kids’ faces as they watch an amazing performance or learn something new? 

Can you support us to continue giving these thrifty memories to everyone, for free, forever? 

Can you help inspire others to make the small changes which you know will make a big difference to our planet?

What's next?

We will keep you regularly updated about what Thrift is up to, year round and how your generous donation is being used. You’ll also get priority booking on events and workshops and other perks to be announced!
