WHAT IS CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENTS' WEEK?
A 4-day long campaign to engage local independent businesses, residents and visitors in celebrating entrepreneurial spirit of the growing independent business community of Cambridge taking place Thursday July 4th - Sunday July 7th, 2019.
To promote Independents Week we are aiming to replicate the template of Love Cambridge Restaurant Week which has been a great success in terms of press coverage, reach, engagement and voucher downloads. At the time of writing this we have had over 25,000 views to the restaurant week website page, as well as over 2,000 voucher downloads, which is really exciting. The dates have been chosen intentionally to run alongside the national Independents’ Day campaign that exists to support and promote independent retail businesses across the UK.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
We need YOUR help to make Cambridge Independent week happen and be a success! Join us to celebrate the independent business community in Cambridge by providing and offer and/or experience throughout the 4 days.
Events (live music in store, fashion shows, art gallery, etc)
Open Workshops (making shoes, cakes, dresses, fabrics, perfume, jewellery, food, cocktails, gin, beer, cheese, hats, handbags, knitting, etc)
Street activity (Collaborations between businesses, ideally neighbours, would be great)
Discounts (Half price, 20% off, etc)
For this event to move forward, we are aiming for at least 30 businesses to get involved. So please express your interest and ideas as soon as possible.
