On 27 December, Freespace Happening helps you prepare for your New Year’s resolutions – and unwind after the excesses of Christmas – with a focus on upcycling, zero waste, and healthy green living.

If you received well-meant but just-not-right-for-you gifts over the holidays, or you simply feel the need to declutter, there will be a great post-xmas gift-swapping opportunity with JupYeah. Just bring along the stuff you don’t want – make sure it’s all clean and in good condition – and take home something you do. Even if you don’t have anything to swap, feel free to drop by and see if there’s anything you’d like!

Sharing more of their innovative recycling ideas, the JupYeah team will be holding some great sharing sessions and workshops, including a guide to the Japanese art of furoshiki – a gift-wrapping technique involving reusable fabrics – as well as tips on sewing skills to repair clothes and how to grow your own produce from food waste.

For music performances, we're keeping our carbon emissions down with a local line-up promising something for all tastes. We have electronica/trip-hop DJ REBEARTH, plus six bands with very different styles – indie folk singer August Gray, rapper Squarehead, pop singer-songwriter with attitude Sister TangYi and the Gang, smooth rockers The Paisley Daze, Canto jazz-funk band Soulmates, and shoegaze band Thud.

Don’t forget to download our app for updates as they’re announced.
