To celebrate SustFest24, we’ve teamed up with sustainable style influencer, Beatrice Turner, to host a clothes swap in our beautiful Assembly Room. Bring up to 3 good quality, pre-loved garments or accessories and swap them for something new with style advice from Beatrice. Or if your favourite piece needs mending you could drop in to our darning corner and learn how to fix it.

This event is a celebration of sustainable fashion - come and Switch or Stitch with us! 

We’ll also have some activities for children.

Please bring your clothes 1.45-2pm and claim tokens to shop with from 2.30pm.

Three good quality items in adult size accepted per person only (see full clothes swap rules below).


About Beatrice Turner:

Through her platform, she aims to inspire others and promote a more conscious approach to the way we consume and appreciate clothing.


Be sure to also visit our SustFest24 case at St Albans Museum + Gallery from 4th June. We'll be exploring how our collections reveal Hertfordshire's connections to global consumerism. 

Clothes Swap Rules

  • We accept a maximum of 3 items per person in adult sizes only.
  • Items not accepted: bad quality items (dirty, ripped, torn, stained, broken zips, etc) jewellery, underwear, nightwear, swimwear or babies and children’s clothes.
  • Bring your own reusable bags to take items home – carrier bags will not be provided.
  • We cannot guarantee sizes/categories of clothing at each event, it is all dependant on what people bring on the day.
  • Please arrive early to avoid disappointment, i.e. first come, first served – we do not hold stock back.
  • We cannot provide credits or return items if you do not find an equal number of items to take home as the number you brought to the swap.
