Let us entertain you on Small Business Saturday

Posted on Monday 28th November 2022

Visitors to Newport city centre on Saturday 3 December can look forward to some festive fun while supporting local businesses. 

Newport City Council has hired some street entertainers in support of Small Business Saturday campaign. 

The nationwide annual campaign highlights small business success and encourages consumers to “shop local”. 

Although it puts the spotlight on one day, the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. 

Councillor Jane Mudd, Leader of Newport City Council, said: “It is vital that we support our small businesses and the “shop local” message has never been more important. 

“This year’s major events, such as the Food Festival and the Countdown to Christmas, have attracted thousands of people and I hope they discovered that there is still much on offer, particularly from our fantastic independent traders. 

“We have also hired some street entertainers to make Small Business Saturday extra special and boost footfall. We hope people will enjoy the performances and spend their money in local businesses, employing local people.” 

Rock to the Elvish Pressies and their 1950s festive tunes; catch the delightful Lairy Fairy and the Magic Christmas Pudding and be amazed by magician Festive Foxley. 

They will be roaming around the city centre between 10am and 4.15pm.
