ABOUT TOTALLY LOCALLY

Totally Locally is something special. It’s more than a shop local campaign, it’s a philosophy.

It started out as a small idea in the North of England and has grown into a multi-award-winning worldwide movement. Groups of volunteers in towns and areas use our Town Kit, following guidelines and using templates and a full event strategy, and use it to make their town a stronger, more vibrant & resilient place.  And all we ask in return in that if they come up with a new idea, it is shared with everyone else.

There is now a network of Totally Locally Towns across the world, sharing ideas, working together and making a difference to their independent businesses.

It works. It has been proven from Yorkshire to London to New Zealand.  A new vibrancy, a spirit of cooperation, and a better Independent High Street.

As seen & heard on/in:

WHAT WE DO

We campaign for Independent High Streets & Businesses in Towns across the UK & worldwide.

We create tools for businesses, groups and volunteers to help themselves – enabling them to boost, sustain and promote independent shops, makers & producers, making towns thrive. 

We encourage collaboration, we encourage no bulls**t and we encourage being nice.

BELOW are the main three ways we do it.

There are many other strands to Totally Locally as you will find as you dig deeper. But it boils down to this…..

Love Where You Live – You Might Just Make It Better.

The Totally Locally Town Kit includes everything you need to run a successful campaign to help re-invigorate your High Street.

From how to get a first meeting together, printable “House Rules”, posters, print templates, links to open-source peer groups, lots of “how To’s” and much more.


Our Town Kit is a framework for collaboration, it gives your group the tools to improve your town.

Fiver Fest is a big celebration of the small businesses and shops that make up the high streets and communities across the UK that make our towns special.

Our simple message – spending just £5 per week in your local independent shops and businesses makes a huge difference to your town or High Street!

Fiver Fest is now a national event. Last time it ran over 130 towns and thousands of businesses across the UK got involved.

We believe the future of our independent high streets is a mixture of bricks & mortar businesses and an online presence.

So this is our solution. Your town’s local businesses all in one place on its own site, where you can browse your local businesses (just like on your real high street) buy from multiple shops with one payment at checkout, then choose click & collect or a delivery option.
