Opportunities for businesses at the UK’s national celebration of sustainability


Apr 30, 2018 #Festival of Thrift

From backing a world film premiere to supporting a spectacular large-scale pop up meal, businesses are being offered the chance to get involved with this year’s Festival of Thrift.

The event, which attracted over 45,000 visitors last year bringing with them an economic value of £840k, has unveiled a series of packages to enable businesses to become partners of what is recognised as the UK’s national celebration of sustainability.

These range from being credited with helping to create the world-premiere of a ‘thrifty’ re-shoot of the famous one-take Redcar beach scene in Atonement Redux, taking Tees Valley banner-makers to London and back to represent the Festival of Thrift in PROCESSIONS and celebrate the centenary of the women ’s vote, and supporting the Festival’s first-ever launch parade on 21 September.

Festival Director, Stella Hall said: “The Festival of Thrift takes place due to the generosity of supporting companies and organisations and we are keen to create opportunities for as broad a range of companies to get involved as possible.

“Quite apart from engaging with sustainability, which is being highlighted daily as one the most pressing issues we are facing, there are lots of reasons for becoming a Festival of Thrift partner. From reaching our visitors at the Festival, through our marketing and PR activity, or for social responsibility reasons or staff volunteering opportunities.”

The Festival organisers can also tailor packages for companies to meet individual requirements.
