London Upcycling Show

After its success in 2016, the London Upcycling Show is back for 2017! North London Waste Authority (NLWA) and Groundwork London have joined forces to put on this event, as part of NLWA’s participation in European Week for Waste Reduction. We want to help people get excited about upcycling furniture – while simultaneously rescuing valuable resources from being thrown away.

If you missed last year’s event, it is a chance for people who live, work or study in one of the seven north London boroughs to enter a piece of ‘upcycled’ furniture into a competition.

If you love turning pre-loved furniture into upcycled masterpieces, or you’ve always wanted an excuse to try, take the challenge and sign up for our upcycling competition. You could win up to £150 to spend at a DIY store, among other prizes! You will also receive a goody bag with a minimum value of £10 to thank you for participating.

All upcycling entries will be displayed and judged at the second London Upcycling Show on 19 November. This fun, family-friendly event showcases upcycling at its very best, and is packed with practical workshops, interactive demonstrations and creative exhibitions.

The Upcycling competition is open to people and organisations who live, work or study in one of these north London boroughs: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.

There are only 25 places, so act fast and register now. Sign up by 12 noon on 16 October to participate.

Enter the upcycling competition now!
