FOR JUST £5 you can swap your unworn items that never see the light of day with someone who will give them the love and wear they deserve, whilst getting a whole lot of new-to-you clobber yourself!

Every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK.

The Great British Clothes Swap aims to make a dent in this ginormous number by making pre-loved clothes swapping FUN!


A few points:

  • This event will feature live, acoustic music. It will be run on a plug-in-and-play basis, with half an hour slots throughout. If you are interested in playing and promoting your music, please message Blown Fuse or Eleanore Frances directly (on blownfusetheatre@gmail.com) and we will book a slot for you.

  • Though this event is mainly focused on swapping or donating clothes, some of you might want to sell. That’s cool, but you’ll be responsible for your own till float and negotiation. The £5 entry fee will still be required.

  • Please only bring items that are in wearable condition. No one wants to take home a pair of trousers they were really excited about, only to find there’s a huge rip in the seam. That’s not cool.

  • We will be providing clothes rails and tables, but there is only a finite amount of each available. Where possible, please bring your own rail or setup if you have one.

  • A full bar will be in operation for your convenience.

  • Tickets are £5 and can be purchased here through Eventbrite. We will accept cash on the door, but where possible please book in advance so we can gauge numbers.

  • Lastly, have fun!

We can’t wait to see you there!

Tired of Dry January already? Need a fun night out without the huge price tag? Join us for the first Blown Fuse Quiz Night of 2019!

If you've been to one of our nights of knowledge before - you'll know you cannot miss out! If you haven't, make it your late New Year's Resolution to come along with your team.

This time with a surprise bonus round that'll give you a clue to our newest work.

Bet what you think will be your best round and spice things up by multiplying your points.

All proceeds will be going towards our next piece of theatre. We cannot thank you enough for your time and support.

See you there!

Do you love shopping for clothes but don’t want to contribute to the huge carbon footprint generated by fast fashion?

Do you fancy a fun afternoon with friends, trying on new-to-you clothes and having a glass of fizz at the bar?

We have the event for you!



we need some time and space…

We are incredibly excited to announce that Southend arts organisation Metal have awarded us a Time & Space Residency for the duration of April 2019.

We will be using this time to develop our new work. For our next project, we want to explore what it is like to be a woman in the 21st Century by speaking to women from all walks of life.

Our research will include visiting and speaking to women of all ages, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, disabilities, with different backgrounds to hear their stories. Blown Fuse Theatre’s aim is to then develop our research and findings into an interactive and promenade piece of theatre.

We’d like to thank the team at Metal for giving us this amazing opportunity and supporting our work. We’re so excited to be working amongst other inspirational artists working on their own practice.
