The hugely popular Festival of Thrift has announced that it is returning to Kirkleatham Museum and Grounds near Redcar on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September 2017.

Over 35,000 people attended the 2016 event on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September to be entertained, inspired and educated about how to live thriftily and sustainably in style.

Festival of Thrift director Stella Hall said that the Festival team are delighted to have been invited back to Kirkleatham by Redcar and Cleveland Council.

“Redcar and Cleveland welcomed us with open arms in 2016 and gave us wonderful support that enabled us to deliver an amazing festival to help boost the area so we are thrilled to be coming back in 2017.”

Visitors flocked to the 2016 event to enjoy a weekend jam-packed with activities designed for everyone.

Stella added: “It is fantastic to have another year now secured for this unique event.  We can now press on with planning a programme to delight and inspire visitors again at Kirkleatham in September.  It will be another amazing event so I would urge everyone to get the date in their diary.

“If people want a break from the dark days of January there are photos from last-year’s super, sunny and joyful Festival on our website as well as a lovely film that will prompt lots of happy memories.  You can also sign up for our email newsletter so you keep updated about what we have planned.”
