Small Business Saturday 2017
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
We’re proud to support over 30 creative enterprises each year with developing successful and influential businesses and this Small Business Saturday we’re encouraging you to spend the first shopping Saturday in December supporting small, independent businesses like those based here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre
Browse our 19 studio shops for original, handmade Christmas gifts that have been created right here by some of the most talented designer-makers in the region.
Drop into our project space – space2 – where Ink Inc Design will be helping you get organised early by offering a gift wrapping service.
Stick around for the afternoon when we’ll have live music. And why not relax in Oak Street Cafe Bar and enjoy lunch from the festive menu or a boozy hot drink!
Find out what else is going on in the area with the Small Business Finder.
