Fiver Fest Southend-on-Sea October 2021

Welcome to our first ever Fiver Fest for our the whole borough of Southend-on-Sea (4th for Leigh-on-Sea)! An amazing opportunity for the borough to come together and celebrate our brilliant independent businesses. It’s really simple – create a £5 offer that gets locals through the doors or clicking ‘add to basket’ on the website or your own and run with it for 2 weeks. Sell out? Create a new offer if you want!

The Totally Locally Southend-on-Sea volunteers supply you with the artwork to promote the offer in shop windows and on social media, we also support you with social media promotion via the @totallylocallysouthendnonsea Instagram and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Still not sure if you want to join in? This is what some of our independent businesses had to say after our last Fiver Fest:

“It’s been a brilliant success. Our fully lined zip up cotton velvet cosmetic bags have been a big hit with our customers. They love that they are sustainably made exclusively for us by a family co-operative in Jaipur India from the remnants of our chair and cushion fabrics. We’ve sold over 50 in the first week and only have 7 left so might have to think about introducing a new offer.” Lisa, Scape Interior

"At first we were a bit apprehensive to get involved with Fiver Fest as we didn’t think we would be able to get involved due to the prices of our jewellery/services. However we came up with “Three Rings cleaned for £5”, and it was a great hit! We had lots of people coming in, either existing customers who had forgotten about us, or new customers who had seen it on social media." Lily, CJ Vinten Goldsmiths


Please fill in the form below to take part:

>> Your business needs to be based in the Borough of Southend-on-Sea and must be independent (not part of a franchise or MLM)

>> You don’t need a physical shop, you can be online only or provide a service rather than product

>> Offers should be something with a £5 spend to tie in with the £5 message, something discounted from a usual price of at least £7/8, but the bigger the discount the better! It should not be £5 off a product. Businesses not on the high street such as services, fitness, financial companies etc. can offer introductory services to get new clients on board. Make the offer for something brill, not just old stock you are trying to shift

>> Take a look at the hashtag #FiverFest for £5 offer inspiration
