We would have nearly survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday without damaging our bank accounts too much, but there’s another shopping event to be aware of – and this one is a bit different.

Small Business Saturday 2022 marks the 10th year of the event in the UK, and the campaign has grown significantly each year.

In 2020, £1.1 billion was spent with small businesses across the day.

Here’s what you need to know about the day and how you can get involved.

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots campaign, which focuses on the success of small businesses, and encouraging customers to shop within their local communities.
