Over 60 streets have registered for The Big Worcestershire Garage Sale 

Worcester Editorial 25th May, 2024   0

MORE THAN 60 streets have already registered to take part in ‘The Big Worcestershire Garage Sale’ next month.

The event will take place on Saturday June 8, with three streets in Malvern taking place – which is the first time the town is taking place in the sale.

Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co and organiser said that there is still time for streets to sign up as there is still four weeks to go.

Vicki Sawyer, of Henley Drive in Droitwich, took part last year, said: “I can’t wait to join in the garage sale this year.

“Last year was fantastic – I set up from 10am to 4pm and got lots of visitors in the glorious sunshine, so hopefully the weather will be on our side again this year.

“It was great getting to know the neighbours, so when people came I’d have a bit of a chat and chinwag about where they’d come from.




“Last year I made nearly £100 at my garage sale and ran a tombola where essentially everyone got a prize, so it was great fun.

This year I’m looking forward to getting rid of other people’s treasures that I see as my junk.”


The Big Worcestershire Garage Sale is inviting streets across Droitwich, Worcester, Malvern and surrounding areas to take part.

Matt said: “People also enjoyed getting to know neighbours and visitors on their drives and front gardens, and it’s this community networking that is one of the most important aspects of the day.

“With more than 50 streets taking part this year, with many streets already having multiple participants confirmed, we’re hoping that at least 100 households hold simultaneous garage sales, if not many more.”

Email: [email protected] to sign up – deadline is May, 29.
