The Big Brönte Clothes Swap

About

You're invited to the Big Brontë Clothes Swap, a day to spruce up your wardrobe in a sustainable way!

To celebrate International Women's Day, we are hosting our very first Clothes Swap. Come into Haworth on Sunday 13th March, 12-4pm, and bring your ripped jeans, your unwanted tops and your ill-fitting dresses, ready to barter and swap.

The Clothes Swap will take place in the Old School Room, where Charlotte and Emily Brontë taught needlework. There will be tables, rails and hangers ready for you to bring your unwanted clothes and accessories, and throughout the afternoon you will be able to swap, trade and donate clothes, finding treasures in another person’s ‘trash’.

Programme Officer Sassy Holmes will be leading a talk about our new exhibition Defying Expectations; Inside Charlotte Bronte’s Wardrobe, and the importance of sustainable fashion. We will also have a Fix Up corner where you can come and ask for advice, and learn creative ways to revitalise items of clothing. With free tea, coffee, and cake, the Big Brontë Clothes Swap is an afternoon for the community to come together.
