Let's Go Swapping!

Find new treasures at the Livat SwapRoom

There’s a sack load of reasons to swap this festive season so join us Saturday 11th – Sunday 19th November, 11:30am – 6:30pm in the Livat Atrium.

From clothing, toys, children’s books, and packaged gifts to Christmas decorations, our SwapRoom means you can reduce waste and the impact on the planet. It’s a simple way to show your friends, family, and the planet some love.

So, join us at Livat, where all visitors will have the opportunity to refresh their wardrobes, discover new accessories, and reduce textile waste by giving their pre-loved clothes and unwanted Christmas gifts and decorations, a new lease of life.

To participate, visitors are required to bring up to six items to donate, which they can swap for up to six items.
