Clothes Swap, Don't Shop

Tuesday 19th May 2020 — Tuesday 7th Jul 2020, The Base

Due to the current situation we are suspending our summer programme of classes and courses and our Box Office team will be in touch with anyone who has already booked. We will restart this work as soon as possible but, in the meantime, please check our homepage where we’ll be releasing online activities and virtual sessions.

Swap till you drop! Have fun, find something you love and make a contribution to helping the planet by remedying fast fashion.

Did you know that fast fashion is a huge contributor to climate change as well as around 300,00 tonnes of clothing ending up in landfill each year? So why not join us for a fun sociable evening where you can swap till you drop!

Rid your wardrobe of things you no longer need, whilst finding something new you love, without causing any further impact on the planet.

How does it work? Attendees must bring a minimum of three clothing items that they no longer want and that are in a reasonable condition to 'swap', on hangers, if possible. Shoes and accessories welcome too. You will also need to bring a bag for life to take any items home with you. Any leftover items will be donated to a charity shop. We recommend taking the same number of items that you donate. Clothing can be brought with you on the night or dropped off at The Base at a pre-arranged time, a member of the team will be in touch to arrange nearer to the event date.

Duration: 7.30pm - 9pm

Sessions: Tuesday 19 May & 7 July

Please note that we reserve the right to cancel any course or workshop if the minimum numbers are not met. If we are not able to run a workshop you will be informed three working days ahead of the course of the workshop start date.

Suitable for ages 14+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
