The second annual UK-wide Small Business Saturday is taking place on Saturday 6th December, and Bristol’s business community is again showing its support with a range of events and activities.
Small Business Saturday is all about acknowledging the contribution the small business sector makes to the economy, while encouraging everyone to support their local small businesses in the run-up to the day, on the day itself, and beyond.
Bristol’s small and independent business sector is rightly celebrated for its vibrancy and its contribution to the city’s unique character.
