100 TOWNS ARE JOINING IN – POSSIBLY THE BIGGEST GRASS-ROOTS HIGH STREET INITIATIVE EVER RUN! HOW GOOD IS THAT?!
Fiver Fest has been running in individual towns as part of the full Totally Locally Town Kit for 8 years now. But it was only in June 2019 that we decided to run it nationally – basically making a big noise about our independent shops & businesses by encouraging them to put on special £5 offers, promoting each other and working together. Then targeting the general public and shoppers with some well thought out, simple messages about how spending just £5 a week can have a huge impact on the place they live.
43 Towns joined in during June and it was a HUGE success. So we repeated it again in October – that time 63 Towns got involved. It was even better – with reports of loads of sales, new customers (who consequently have become regular customers!) and a real buzz in the towns.
Word of Mouth on Fiver Fest has meant that this time 100 towns across the UK will be taking part in Fiver Fest.
There is a map showing which shops and businesses are taking place, so you can see what is near you.
Follow us on social media – Instagram, Facebook & Twitter to keep up to date with all the stuff going on. Exciting, we think!

Happy Fiver Fest!
And everything just blew up from there. We had TV, press, Radio & social media coverage individually for towns and as a whole. We even got a few slots on BBC Breakfast TV!
