Event description

Description

A fun evening that also protects the environment and restocks your wardrobe!

Tickets will be £15 including a glass of Prosecco. All profits will go to the Bedford Foodbank.

What is swishing?

You bring the things in your wardrobe that are not quite your colour, not a good fit or not really your style. The things you look at but never wear. Things that you would happily give to a friend.

They might be garments, shoes , scarves, hats or bags. You donate them and hopefully find other things to take home which make your heart sing.

How does it work?

  1. You bring a maximum of five quality, clean items that you are ready to pass on. Scarves are welcome but they do not count! Bring things on hangers if you can (you will take things home on hangers).

  2. We give you one raffle ticket per item (this is your money)

  3. Have a glass of prosecco whilst we sort things. Garments will be sorted into warm and cool colours as well as sizes. So if you have had your colurs done you know these things will work for you. There will also be Tropic Natural Skincare products and Norwex Eco cleaning products to browse.

  4. You can look and even touch garments but no trying on yet!

  5. Try on Time starts. If you would like it you can exchange one of your raffle tickets per item.

  6. There will be no arguments – this is fun! You may both want it but who looks best in it?

  7. Then there will be a Free for All Time when you can take what you want from what is left. There will be buckets around and we hope that you will make a donation to the Bedford Foodbank.

  8. All left over items will go to Déjà Vu the charity shop at the MS Therapy Centre in Barkers Lane, Bedford.

What happens if I donate an amazing item but do not find something I want?

This is all about letting go and giving garments a chance to be loved. We cannot know whether you will find something you love; we hope so. If not watch the fun and enjoy it.

What is the venue like?

Bedford Golf Club is flat and accessible for wheelchair users. It is easy to find without going into Central Bedford and has a big carpark.
