Go clothes swapping with the Green Festival Swish!

Community & Education
Do you love fashion but hate trawling the shops? Is your wardrobe bulging with clothes you haven’t worn in years? We’ve got the guilt-free solution to a new wardrobe that won’t break the bank! Head to the Garden Room at the Great Northern Hotel (PE1 1QL) on Wednesday 27 May, 6pm-8pm, for the Green Festival Swish.

Run as a Green Festival (23-31 May) fringe event, the Swish is your chance to swap your unloved but glamorous clothing items with other ‘posh frocks’! Bring your friends and enjoy a relaxed evening with wine and nibbles at the Great Northern Hotel. The event is run by independent charity Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT).

For a £3 entry fee ‘swishers’ can bring along 1-6 high quality items and swap them for the same number of fashion items brought along by other attendees. Green Festival Officer April Sotomayor explains: “It’s a guilt-free solution to choosing a fantastic new outfit because everyone can recycle high quality fashion items in a fun-filled environment.  Save money, help the environment and have fun with your friends!”
