Clothes Swap with BUST and Bristol Hub

Friday 22 February, 11am, Bristol SU
Feel like you're bored with your current wardrobe? Got too many clothes lying around you don't wear but know someone else would love? Look no further because this is the perfect event to attend to completely renovate your wardrobe.

Simply bring along pieces of clothing you think someone else would love, and then pick up some new pieces for yourself! Best of all, it’s completely free.
