Revive, Repair, Re-use: Stories of Sustainability

Date/Time

10 October 2023 - 07 July 2024

Venue Abbey House Museum

Revive, Repair, Re-use is a co-curated volunteer display at Abbey House Museum. Telling stories of sustainability and how it has long been a part of our lives, but is now more important than ever.

Come to see some of the sustainable practices people in Leeds have used throughout the generations, and those which still happen today. From make do and mending, to growing food and making the best use of available resources on our doorstep.

We will share local stories of people and organisations that put sustainability at the forefront of their lives and working practices. Find out more about how you can get involved in your local area.


Be transported back to the 19th century and stroll the Victorian streets with the authentically recreated shops, pub and houses at Abbey House Museum.
