Go clothes swapping with the Green Festival Swish!

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!”
