The award-winning Festival of Thrift
You may have spotted in last week’s blog that we won two Fresh Awards for our work for clients Lingfield Point and the Festival of Thrift – scooping silver for the Low Budget Campaign and bronze for the CSR or Green Campaign.
Our talented team put a lot of love and hard work into making the first ever Festival of Thrift a huge success in 2013 and, in the words of Festival Co-Founder Wayne Hemingway, it proves that “thrift is not just a flash in the pan”.
Earlier this year the festival was also recognised as the Best Event in Teesside at The Journal Culture Awards, and is shortlisted for Low Budget Campaign, Best Use of Social Media and Best Event at the CIPR Pride Awards – we’re keeping our fingers crossed!
This year’s event was even more successful than the first, with around 40,000 people turning up to enjoy the fun. Check out the short celebratory film below to see why it’s so popular:
