FREE Saturday 221sntd& Sunday 2 r Septembe Opening times 10.30am to 5pm

The two-day Festival of Thrift is a free, fun-filled family event celebrating everything that’s fabulously frugal. Here top designer and festival curator, Wayne Hemingway; John Orchard of Marchday, which owns Lingfield Point, the fantastic festival venue, and director Stella Hall, explain what it’s all about.

Wayne’s words add up “Thrift and upcycling are not new concepts in design or day-to-day living, and in the UK we’re moving towards a new appreciation of thrift. “There is a realisation that consumption for consumption’s sake is pretty daft, especially in today’s economic climate. “I was lucky enough to grow up with my grandparents instilling in me every day thrifty behaviour.

Wayne Hemingway

Making a Point about sustainability "Lingfield Point was originally built as a wool factory by Patons & Baldwins in the 1950s.

“We quickly realised that there was a real feeling of nostalgia and shared ownership towards Lingfield Point around the town and wasted no time uncovering and celebrating that heritage. “Fifteen years later Marchday has transformed the site into a thriving, cool and vibrant business community, and the first new homes are now being built adding another dimension to the community here.

“It was the biggest employer in Darlington, employing more than 4,500 people. “As a result it touched the lives of many Darlington people who still have very fond memories of their days in the Patons & Baldwins factory. “What we bought was a grand industrial empire which was sadly in decline.

“A few years ago Wayne and his wife Gerardine visited Lingfield Point. They thought that our decision to reuse the original 1950s buildings instead of building new was a spectacular illustration of upcycling on a grand scale.

“My mum and nan always looked wonderfully cool in the printed summer dresses they ran up on a sewing machine in the back room. “Gerardine and I sold the same dresses on Camden Market in 1981 - and that got our business going! “Durability used to be one of the highest qualities that traditional manufacturing prided itself on, but it has been forsaken in favour of fashionable gimmicks and fast turnaround. We need it back on the agenda.

“We sat down together and pretty much came up with the idea of the Festival of Thrift over a cup of tea. “It's amazing how the festival has captured people’s imagination and the timing feels just right.

“We have all worked extremely hard over the last nine months to produce this new baby for Darlington!

Free Costing nothing

Stella Hall

“From the members of the volunteer steering group (see back page) to the staff of Marchday and Darlington Council to our wonderful sponsors and partners, everyone has gone above and beyond the call of duty.

“Thrift is a lifestyle that’s open to everyone, and the desire to leave a legacy of passing down the good things to future generations is embedded in all the species.

“Hopefully the Festival of Thrift will help those already living a thrifty lifestyle to learn some new ways to reuse, reduce and upcycle, and help others to see that being thrifty isn’t just cool, it’s a better way of life.”

“I’m particularly looking forward to the foraging workshops and learning how to build a pizza oven in my garden!”

“We call it ‘a celebration of common sense living’ and many of the themes are about saving money and therefore saving energy.

T hrift t T he pruden ey use of mon to and goods avoid waste

“That's good for the planet but I believe a lot of this stuff is about living a happy life. “Growing veg makes you feel good! and, children love getting up in the morning and collecting the eggs from the chickens. “Above all it’s about having fun!

TAKING THE RIGHT DIRECTION “It’s incredible what can be achieved when you have a concept you believe in and people who are willing to go the extra mile.

Festival A time of celebration

“Being the eldest of nine, I know the importance of making a little go a long way, and coming from such a big family also instilled in me the importance of not wasting resources, food and clothing or space! “Like so many of our performing artists, stallholders, workshoppers and speakers this weekend, I believe in placing creativity at the heart of our shared sustainable future, and hope we have put together a programme that will give all the family confidence to create while having fun on a budget.

John Orchard “The key to a great festival is one that creates a real sense of community – people coming together for a shared passion – and is firmly rooted in the place from which it has emerged.

“I’ll be making a beeline for the Multi Thrifty Swapshop… I have a Christmas onesie I need to exchange, maybe for a ballgown!”
