A free ‘ideas festival’ to help cut household bills and to become more eco-friendly is to be held at Ikea this weekend.

Cost-saving workshops, vegetable growing demonstrations and interior seasonal styling seminars are just some of the activities on offer for Milton Keynes residents on Saturday.

The day will encompass a host of interactive workshops for the general public to attend, taught by Ikea experts demonstrating money saving tips and eco-friendly advice to implement within the home.

Sessions will include how to save money and energy in the kitchen, inventive ways to use food leftovers, and eco arts and crafts.

With free food, children’s entertainment and lots of prizes up for grabs, it aims to be a fun-filled day for all the family.

Youngsters can also get involved in an array of activities by The Woodland Trust including seed planting and the creation of a giant collage using materials foraged from the local area.

Barbara Harrison, store manager at Ikea Milton Keynes, said: “Ikea’s Ideas Festival is designed to show the public just how easy it is to cut costs and save money on the household bill. Every session is packed with inspirational ideas that will save people time and money. It’s amazing how small things can make a big difference. There are lots of activities for the public to get involved with, all of which are completely free! It’s a great and cost effective way to have a wonderful day out for all the family.”
