Organised by the charity Hubbub in partnership with fashion rental community Loanhood, give your old favourites a new life and find something new to dazzle at your next festive event.

All you have to do is bring along a few of your favourite party outfits you’re ready to pass on or repair and you’ll be given the opportunity to swap them for something brand new (well, new to you)!

When: 30th November, 6-9pm 

Where: St Martin’s Courtyard, Slingsby Pl, London WC2H 9EF

How it works?

Please bring no more than 5 items of clothing, accessories and/or footwear freshly cleaned * and ready to go on the rails. We accept all genders, shapes and sizes.

Bring up to 5 items to trade for tokens. Items will be assessed by the Swap Shop Assistants on arrival and displayed on the rails. Keep an eye out for the yellow stickers which means an item is a 2 token piece.

Once you give us your clothes we will categorise them and give you tokens in return.

There is a grouping system of clothes based on Recommended Retail Price (RRP) and condition. This will dictate how many tokens you receive and can swap on the stalls.

Browse the rails and use your token currency to exchange for new preloved items.

What to bring?

Clean and of good quality

Free of faults or minor repairs

Something you once valued or will be valued by someone else. Ask yourself – would you give this to a friend?

*No Underwear/Swimwear

All items will be assessed using LOANHOOD ‘Swap-Shop Item Guide’ by our Swap Shop Assistants.


Token currency:

1 Token – preloved under £50

2 Tokens – preloved over £50 & great condition. These items have a yellow sticker.

*Any particularly valuable or special garments will be assigned their own token currency and showcased amongst the items.

If you run out of tokens, extra tokens will be free purchase for £1 each.


DROP – The value of each items will be assigned by the Swap Shop Assistants and unchangeable after donation.

SWAP – You can only swap if you bring items to exchange.

SHOP – We can refuse any items brought to the event that do not meet the criteria of the token system. We appreciate your honesty. Please refrain from taking any garments you have not officially swapped.
