The Big Swap

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

If you can't quite bring yourself to take that slightly-too-small jumper to the charity shop but you're too lazy for eBay then gather the clothes, books and DVDs you're bored with and swap them for (nearly) new things at The Big Swap.

Not only will you be refreshing your wardrobe and saving your old things from landfill, you'll be reducing the use of new materials, picking up a bargain (free stuff!), finding a new read or doing some re-gifting.

The more you bring to swap the more items you can pick up. Donations are also welcome which will be passed on to local charity Foundation 66.

The swap will take place alongside the weekly London Bridge Farmers' Market.

Forster (49 Southwark Street) will be accepting swap items between 9am and 6pm Monday-Friday until Monday 4 March for anyone who'd like to drop off swap items ahead of time.

A Climate Week event.
