The hugely popular Festival of Thrift is fast approaching and, in the spirit of one of the 2019 event’s key themes of celebrating the moon landing, the organisers have released a countdown of highlights of this year’s packed programme.

A weekend of exciting and inventive activities designed to appeal across the board is set to blast off when the event marks its seventh year of celebrating sustainable living in a return to the woodlands of Kirkleatham, near Redcar, on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September.

The festival's art-focused offshoot, VIEWPOINTS, bookends the event this year with artworks focusing on the 2019 Festival’s other key theme of clean air popping up across the Tees Valley from 12 – 19 September.
