The Toy Swapshop
Keynsham Leisure Centre, 23-26 February 2022
Children are being welcomed along to see the fabulous toy upcycler in action at Keynsham Leisure Centre. Visitors can bring a toy to be gifted to another lucky child. With the help of special technology, volunteers will make sure that each toy is safe and clean and ready for its new home. Everyone who brings in a toy can see the toy upcycler machine in action and will be invited to take home another preloved toy of their choice.
The toy upcycler was the brainchild of Allison Herbert, Chief Executive of the Bath BID, and was brought to life by theatre and festival set designer and maker, Vix Fuller. Over 85% of the machine is made from reused, recycled, upcycled and preloved materials.
This is a drop-in event. Opening hours are as follows:
- Wednesday 23 February, 12-2pm
- Thursday 24 February, 11-1pm
- Friday 25 February, 6-8pm
- Saturday 26 February, 12-2pm
This installation forms part of Making Space for Our Future, the launch festival for Keynsham’s HS HAZ Local Cultural Programme.
