 We are kicking off with a fashion upcycling event. PLEASE BRING AN ITEM OF CLOTHING THAT YOU FEEL CAN BE MADE MORE CONTEMPORARY OR EVEN TURNED INTO ANOTHER GARMENT. Work with over 30 of the best fashion students in the region, breathing life back into unwanted clothes.

From 9.00pm til 9.00am, join the "write through the night" team as we bring the most creative people under one roof to imagine and develop inspiring stories for the future.
We will have plenty of refreshments to keep the creative juices flowing all night or just join us at any point of the night. There will be a warm welcome to everyone.
