Big Clean Switch
Sustainable Fashion Week


We are really excited to be hosting a clothes swap in collaboration with The Artful Menders at Where Inspiration Blooms

Swishing is the process of giving your unwanted good quality clothing away to search and take away something that you love – a classic swap!

The event will take place on Saturday 25th September from 6-8pm at Where Inspiration Blooms, The Barn, Chartridge and you can find the exact location here

Simply bring along up to 5 items of your unwanted clothing on hangers (including accessories but no shoes please) and get a token for each one. You will be able to exchange each token for an item you’d like to take home on the night.

You can drop off your clothes to Where Inspiration Blooms the day before (on Friday 24th) from 2-5pm or between 5.30-6pm on the 25th. We’d appreciate it if they were pressed and on hangers.

They will be sorted by our volunteers while you sip your fizz and browse from 6pm, before the Swishing starts at 6.30pm (and you can start picking out the clothes you like).

Tickets are £4 which includes a refreshment (a glass of alcoholic or non-alcoholic fizz)

To buy tickets you can click on this link or pay by cash or card on the door.

You can pay by cash on the door or we can take payment by card too.

We really look forward to welcoming you at this brilliant event.

At Where Inspiration Blooms there is parking at the Barn for 10 cars, or alternatively you can park at the hotel (Chartridge Lodge & Conference Centre) and walk down the short lane from there.

Covid notice: If you are showing any symptoms of Covid please stay away from the event and we reserve the right to ask anyone to leave who we feel is displaying symptoms.

Wearing a mask will be optional, but we urge people to be respectful of each others wishes.

The event is limited to 60 people so do arrive promptly to join the Swish!
