Those saddened by the recent news that the Festival Of Thrift at Kirkleatham on September 12- 13th has been officially cancelled, can dry their tears and begin to smile again it’s been announced that in true FOT style, the event is going to be repurposed and upcycled for 2020. 

Alternative plans are being drawn up to replace the hugely popular national celebration of sustainable living with something more suitable for these socially distant times but still allowing those who attend to adapt, share, create, learn and enjoy in an alternative way.

Further details will be announced in coming weeks after the festival team has finalised plans that are in line with government and industry guidance to be safe and responsible, and meet some of the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, but Festival of Thrift director Stella Hall hints that it’s going to be something very exciting….

“We have been inspired by how many communities have joined us and adapted to a new way of living, and we want to harness some of that creative sustainable spirit and share it with the world.

“As with any great upcycling project there is quite a lot of work being done in the background before the big reveal so – watch this space!”
