The organisers of this year’s Festival of Thrift are asking people to help the event to develop and grow.

Over 37,000 attended the award-winning event at Kirkleatham, near Redcar, over the weekend of 14-15 September and an online post event survey has now been launched to allow festival-goers to feedback about their visit.

A hugely popular festival that places art at its heart, the Festival of Thrift is a celebration of the joys of sustainable living.

The weekend offered a packed programme of performances, workshops and lively talks and debates on environmental and sustainability issues alongside food dishes and stalls from a range of independent producers and a wide array of upcycled, recycled and sustainable goods from small businesses from across the region.

Speaking after the event Festival of Thrift director, Stella Hall, said the weekend had been a huge success.

“It’s been another magnificent weekend where important messages about sustainability have been communicated with a light touch and a lot of fun.  Visitors of every age from across the UK have come along and had a wonderful time at this national event that is now firmly rooted in Redcar.

“It’s been hugely enjoyable and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!”
