The idea is simple. You bring along some of your old DVDs that you think other people will enjoy.
You get a token for each DVD you bring.
You look through all the DVDs everyone else has brought along.
Swap your tokens for some awesome new films!
We’re still working out where we’ll hold it and how many people we need to make it viable. If you’ve got any suggestions, let us know.
How much does it cost?
Entry is free but we ask that you bring a minimum of 2 DVDs.
What Can I Bring?
Any DVD you think someone else will enjoy. Movies, Music, TV Shows are all fine.
What about a free DVD I got with a newspaper?
As long as you think someone will get value out of it – go ahead.
What condition should the DVD be in?
It needs to be playable (no heavy scratches) and in its original packaging.
What region should the DVDs be?
Any region, including Region Free, is fine.
What can’t I bring?
No R18 – that’s porn to you or me.
Nothing that’s banned from this country.
No “backup” copies – original DVDs only.
No heavy scratches; must be playable.
Caveat Emptor: Check that the DVDs you want to take home are compatible with your equipment & are in good enough condition to play.
Technicalities: 1 film on 2 discs (special features etc.) counts for 1 token. Several films on 1 disc or in a single case counts for 1 token.
Box sets will be counted as a single film – you may wish to separate them, but you don’t have to.
If there are any leftover DVDs, you may purchase them for the princely sum of £1 – all the money goes to Oxfam. Anything DVDs not swapped at the end of the night get donated to the nearest Oxfam shop.
Well, those are the basics. Interested? Got a suggestion? You know where the comment box is.
