JOIN IN THE NATIONAL TOTALLY LOCALLY FIVER FEST

CELEBRATING THE WONDERFUL INDEPENDENT SHOPS AND BUSINESSES OF THE UK. A FREE-TO-JOIN CAMPAIGN TO SHOW JUST HOW GREAT OUR INDEPENDENT HIGH STREETS ARE, AND WHAT A HUGE CONTRIBUTION THEY MAKE TO THE BRITISH ECONOMY!

The Totally Locally Fiver Fest is a big celebration of Britain’s fantastic small businesses and shops, many run by families or individuals, but ALL contributing massively to the economy of the UK and the wellbeing of our towns.

Towns and High Streets taking part put on special £5 offers over 1 week, to show the diversity and value of what they sell, and to say thank you to the communities that support them.

It comes from the (now famous) Totally Locally £5 message showing the huge impact of people spending just £5 per week in their local independent shops can have on our High Streets.

PLEASE NOTE: THE FIVER FEST IS FOR INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES ONLY

THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY INTO THE LOCAL ECONOMY OF THE TOWN. CHAIN STORES, BIG CORPORATE BUSINESSES, NATIONAL CHARITIES ETC. MAY NOT JOIN IN THIS CAMPAIGN. BY USING THESE TEMPLATES AND JOINING IN WITH THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS. This is because Independent Businesses need help with marketing – Big Businesses have millions to spend. It’s about levelling the playing field for small independent businesses. No Exceptions.

Fiver Fests have been run by towns using the Totally Locally Town Kit for many years, and have always been a big success. So we decided to run one across loads of towns at the same time. And here it is!

We will be updating this page as the event unfurls.

     SO WHAT EXACTLY IS A FIVER FEST?!      

A few articles about Fiver Fests, The £5 Message and Totally Locally as a concept.
