Independents Day is held in the UK on 4th July to celebrate independent businesses. The aim of the day is to draw attention to independent businesses and help raise awareness and footfall.

The ‘Bristol Independents’ campaign wants Bristol’s local economy to flourish and thrive. According to the New Economics Foundation, each pound spent with a local retailer selling local produce puts twice as much money back into the local economy as a pound spent in a national multiple. Read more about the campaign on our About page.

Show some love to Bristol by supporting and celebrating our vibrant array of local independent retailers, cafes, restaurants, and artisans!
