Every December Wollaton Hall in Nottingham has a weekend of craft stalls and Tudor fun. 2014's weekend fantastically also falls on Small Business Saturday UK.
What now? You may have seen posters and things, but in short, Small Business Saturday is a day to help promote smaller enterprises, working hard in a largely corporate world.
Be it family business, local shop, online business, wholesaler or small manufacturer - Small Business Saturday encourages people to think about and shop with smaller options.
The day to day hard work put in by people to keep their business afloat, can often give you a more rewarding end result. They rely on word of mouth, reviews, and reputation rather than big marketing campaigns and discounted sales - so for you as a customer, small businesses have a very vested interest in keeping you happy.
