The Totally Locally Bridport Fiver Fest takes place between 8th-15th June.
Bridport will be joining many other cities, towns, and villages across the UK taking part in the National Fiver Fest organised by Totally Locally. This year lots of towns that are used to running Fiver Fests on their own will be choosing the same week, so we can show the importance of supporting local independent businesses on the much bigger scale.
The National Fiver Fest had already gathered lots of national press so it will be wonderful to put on a great event for Bridport!
The £5 message is what the whole of totally locally is built around. A simple message that makes it easy for people to shop local. No pressure, no guilt. Easy.
The £5 Message:
IF EVERY ADULT IN BRIDPORT SPENT JUST £5 A WEEK IN OUR INDEPENDENT SHOPS AND BUSINESSES, INSTEAD OF ONLINE OR AT THE BIG SUPERMARKETS, IT WOULD BE WORTH OVER £4.6 MILLION PER YEAR GOING INTO OUR LOCAL ECONOMY. WHICH MEANS MORE JOBS, BETTER FACILITIES AND A NICER PLACE TO LIVE…MAKES YOU THINK DOESN’T IT?!
Look out for what our local shops have on to offer!
