FIVER FEST – AUTUMN 2019
OUR SECOND FIVERFEST is a’comin……
The Very First Totally Locally National Fiver Fest took place on 8-15th June 2019
and we were overwhelmed by the response! 41 towns, individual shops and the general public have embraced the Totally Locally Message – spending just £5 per week in your local independent shops and businesses makes a huge difference to your town or High Street!
The media coverage was incredible, and towns across the country have been working together and sharing ideas. It truly is a grassroots movement, one we are really proud to have instigated.
So due to popular demand, and lots of messages saying ‘we wish we could have been involved’ we are running another Fiver Fest from OCTOBER 5-12th CLICK ON THE ARTICLE BELOW TO FIND OUT MORE. If you want to be kept informed email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with title :FIVER FEST UPDATE.

Totally Locally is something special. 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 the free kit (yes it really is free), 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 or 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 High Street.
THE FAMOUS £5 MESSAGE…
(yes this is where it started)
