Fiver Fest is something special. To celebrate our Great British High Street, thousands of businesses in 130 towns across the country got together to put on special £5 offers to say thank you to shoppers for supporting them throughout the year.
Fiver Fest started as part of the Totally Locally Town Kit when every town would run the event individually & locally. It follows on from the £5 message for each town, and follows a strategy timeline we give for the the whole Totally Locally campaign.
In February 2019 we decided to run a NATIONAL FIVER FEST. We put out the call to the Totally Locally community and were chuffed when 43 towns got involved. It was a huge success, with lots of sales plus new customers came through hundreds of doors. The following one had 83 town, and the one after that 103 (3 IS the magic number!)
This October we are thrilled that Fiver Fest is supported by the good people at Visa, as part of their ‘Where You Shop Matters’ campaign. They have helped us tremendously.
With 130 towns running Fiver Fest in October, the press and media coverage has been huge, with over 170 articles in national, regional & local press, radio & tv plus thousands of social media posts.
Below is just a small selection of what we have pulled from that social media – amazing! Thank you all who tweeted, posted, shared and hashtagged. It has given an incredible view of Fiver Fest, the communities across the UK and just how passionate small business owners are about what they sell and the places they live.
There will be another FIVER FEST in early 2021, so if you want your town to be involved contact you can register your interest by completing the form below
