Our hugely successful Nearly New Sales are currently held twice a year. 

Our next sale will be on SUNDAY 26th APRIL 2020


You will find:

  • Children's clothes - From Newborn up to age 10 including school uniforms
  • Nursery equipment - including cots, highchairs, moses baskets and much more
  • Prams and buggies
  • Toys - for inside & out
  • Children's books and DVDs
  • Maternity clothes
  • Books related to pregnancy & childcare

Seller spaces usually get fully booked out so that means thousands of items up for sale. NCT Members do, of course, receive advance notification of sales - especially important if you want to sell as spaces are limited

If you are interesting in selling please visit Selling at sales.

How does it work?

  • The sale starts at 12.00 for the general public and closes at 1.30pm. Whilst the venue has a car park, parking is limited purely due to the number of people attending the sale. Please park considerately bearing in mind that a lot of our customers will have prams.
  • We ask an entrance fee of £1 per adult for both members and non-members, kids are free! Please be aware we do not allow buggies/prams in the selling hall due to restricted space and fire regulations. If you need to bring your baby with you please have an alternative way (or another person!) to carry your baby whilst you shop. We will have an area to leave your pram safely if needs be.
  • Browse, grab a bargain, have a chat with our friendly volunteers or with local mums and mums-to-be before you make your way to the tills. We accept cash and most cards (Chip & Pin). Don't forget to stop by our Membership stall to say hello and to find out more about activities and groups available in the area.
  • You can also decide to purchase an NCT membership on the day and benefit from the members' perks straight away!

Making an impact on the community and the environment

NCT Nearly New Sales are the charity’s largest fundraiser, raising over £1 million every year to help support parents in their communities and through UK wide projects. They help NCT branches provide face-to-face support to parents on their doorsteps, as well as funding national helplines, breastfeeding counselling, training antenatal and postnatal teachers and many more services.

Last year, more than 200,000 parents attended an NCT Nearly New Sale. More than 600 Sales were held across the UK, with 50,000 parents selling over 1 million items.

Even better, every item bought from an NCT Nearly New Sale is an item which isn’t going to landfill.
