Saturday 4th July: Birmingham Independents Day

By Dave Massey @brumhour


On Saturday 4th July, while America celebrates its Independence Day, BrumHour invites you to share #BrumIndependentsDay across social media and support your local businesses.

Dave Massey from BrumHour (That’s me) said “I’ve seen businesses across the UK take part in Small Business Saturday in previous years and I wanted to do a version we could do in Birmingham.

“Tell your friends, work colleges, business contacts, and use your social media voice to highlight great Independent businesses in and around Birmingham.

“While is obvious that Brummies love their Independent food and drink venues. We also have many other types of indie business that we can champion. Talk about your friends business or someone in your street or suburb or even across town!

“On the day itself join in using #BrumIndependentsDay on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!”
