The Landmark Arts Centre's Trash to Treasure Fest kickstarts today, encouraging locals to fix, reuse and recycle their unwanted electricals.

Running from Tuesday 13 - Friday 23 September, the festival coincides with National Recycling Week, and with a host of workshops and classes running throughout, the Landmark's offering aims to inspire residents to improve their recycling through creativity.

Recycle Your Electricals Exhibition will consist of work from the award-winning photographer Gregg Segal, the exhibition also featured at COP26 in Glasgow last year.

Recycle Sounds; a sound installation will be played at the Arts Centre at 11am, noon, and 2pm on Saturday 17 September.

The sound recording was created using old electrical items, and with the involvement from the Landmark's choirs and local schools. For visitors who are unable to make the set times, headphones will be made available during the exhibition opening hours for the rest of the exhibition.

A drop in Repair Cafe held by members of Sheddington, a not-for-profit community space in Teddington, where people meet up to get creative and mend various items, will also be made available on the 15th and 17 September where visitors will be able to get sustainably creative whilst enjoying a tea or coffee.

For little ones, a variety of workshops will also be on show including art themed classes with local artist Louise Anderson.
