The Tour 2023
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
The iconic Small Business Saturday UK Tour is back again this November!
The countdown to Small Business Saturday is officially on, as The Tour returns to spotlight and support small businesses all over the country.
Once again supported by BT Skills for Tomorrow, ‘The Tour’ will call at twenty three different towns and cities across the UK throughout November, visiting small businesses and shining a light on their contribution to the UK economy and local communities.
It will also offer a jampacked free daily programme of online events - including workshops, webinars, mentoring and inspiring entrepreneurial stories - open to all small businesses.
Kicking off in Inverness on Monday 30th October, The Tour will travel across the UK for five weeks and make use of electric vehicles – including a state-of-the-art eco-friendly electric bike from Stirling Eco – to limit emissions and reflect the sustainable switches many small business owners are making as part of their vital role in the race to net zero.
