Festival for the Future: Clothes Swap

9 July @ 10.30am - 4.00pm

Fancy a new outfit without spending a single penny? Bring the clothes you no longer wear and trade them for new and exciting pieces!
From 10.30am – 4pm, drop off your old clothes and exchange them for something new. Clothes for all ages, shapes, sizes and genders welcome – the more variety the better, and we hope there’ll be something for everyone!
Booking is not necessary – just turn up on the day. If you’d like to arrange drop-off of clothing in the run-up to the event, use the contact details below. The event is free to attend.

Terms and conditions:
• Clothes must be clean and in good condition. Items will be checked on the door.
• Items that are well-worn, faded, personalised, damaged, or in poor condition will not be accepted.
• Max. 10 items per person may be brought. We recommend bringing around 5-8 items each.
• Swaps are one-for-one, independent of brands, labels etc.
• Children’s clothes welcome.
• Shoes, bags, and accessories welcome. Shoes must come in matching pairs and sizes. Worn earrings not accepted.
• Underwear not accepted.
• Unused tickets cannot be reimbursed, although they may be transferred to any future swaps.
Clothes swaps are great for your wardrobe – and even better for the environment! Did you know that the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, and that three out of every five items will end up in landfill within a year of purchase?
Together, we can make a change. By consuming mindfully. By repurposing and buying second-hand. By making small changes to the way we shop.
Inspired by #PlasticFreeJuly, Festival for the Future is a month-long, community-driven celebration of sustainability and climate initiatives spanning all four museum sites. Co-curated by community members, local organisations and sustainability groups, it combines education around sustainability and climate issues with creative responses, and gives local people a platform for sharing their work.
