Fashion Revolution Week 2019

Fashion Revolution is a worldwide event born out of the devastating collapse of a textile factory in Rana Plaza, Bangladesh that took the life of 1,134 textile workers in 2013. Each year events take place internationally throughout the week.

It has turned the focus of consumers on the true cost of clothing – from the people who make our garments, to the ecological impact of the processes, and the way we care for our garments.

We are hosting an all-day event on April 27th, 2019


Join us at our pitch in Lancaster’s
Market Square

For activities to learn about the social, economic, and ecological impact of our clothing choices! This is a free event.
10 am – 4 pm


Slavery & Cotton Walking Tour

With Professor Alan Rice of UCLAN. Meet at The Friends Meeting House and completes in the Market Square. £6 per person – buy your tickets before it sells out!
10 am – 12:30 pm

This is a walking guided tour of sites that have connections to cotton and the Transatlantic Slave Trade use very specific research relating to local material history to enrich our understanding of cotton’s place in the history of the North West and its relation to global histories. Unfortunately the tour is not wheelchair accessible due to the uneven streets of Lancaster and inaccessible public buildings. Contact us directly for concessions: sewingcafelancaster@gmail.com
