We’re over the moon to announce that we’ll be hosting the fabulously frugal Festival of Thrift again this year – scheduled for Saturday 26 September & Sunday 27 September – one of the biggest events in the North East’s social calendar.
This two-day event – now in its third year – will be packed full of free, family fun and we’ll be revealing details of events, attractions and workshops – with something for everyone – over the coming months.
The initial concept of creating a festival to show people how reusing, recycling and upcycling can be fun, save them money and benefit the environment remains the same. This year there will be even more advice, tips and tricks that will ensure visitors do just that.
Eddie Humphries, Lingfield Point Estate Manager, said: “Last year around 40,000 people visited Lingfield Point over the two-day Festival, which gives us a great opportunity to showcase the business park, and everything we have on offer – from public art to the award-winning upcycled office spaces like The Beehive and Lingfield House.
Eddie added, “Lingfield House – home to YARN – and Beehive are great examples of upcycled office space and has space available from 540 sqft with a neighbourhood that provides a great social atmosphere. The Beehive, in particular, is a great space for growing businesses and with events like this we hope to welcome even more customers with space available from 1,800 sqft”
The Festival will be in the capable hands of renowned festival director Stella Hall who is delighted to have the support of Lingfield Point and its business community for 2015.
Stella said: “We’re developing a fantastic programme and all we can say at this stage is that we’ll be bigger and better than ever – bursting at the seams with famously thrifty entertainment and amazing artists.”
Stella added: “Last year was a massive success and we’d certainly love to see the crowds flocking to Lingfield Point again.
“Thrift is more than a trend – it’s here to stay, it’s a culture and a set of values to live by. The Festival is certainly helping to get it engrained into the lives of people in across the North East.
“Our thrifters are a community and the Festival is a great opportunity for them to get together and share what they do, while enjoying great entertainment and a free day out.”
