Independent businesses are a crucial point of difference for Nottingham’s retail and leisure offerings and we are committed to recognising and celebrating their vital contribution to the local economy through the dedicated Independent City stream of delivery.
Nottingham BID have a ring-fenced fund of over £100,000 per year to help support Nottingham’s independent businesses. An Independent Advisory Group (IAG) was formed to represent the sector and help determine how the funds are spent each year. The IAG is chaired by Nottingham BID Director, Geoff Williams, who himself is an independent business owner in the city. Along with fellow independent business manager, Polly Reade, who is also a member of the Nottingham BID board. Both Polly and Geoff represent the interests of independent businesses on the Nottingham BID committee.
Continuing to support numerous forward thinking and innovative organisations to promote the city’s independents. This includes events such as Small Business Saturday, Craft Beer Week, Wigflex and Hockley Hustle.
A market day to showcase the diverse offering of local independents.
Further information on this event to follow soon!
Nottingham’s independents play a huge role in the identity of our city and we are delighted to present Independent Nottingham - the new branding for the Independent City strand of Nottingham BID’s strategy.

Nottingham BID works with shops and venues to display the Small Business Saturday poster, or the Nottingham independents logo to help promote the campaign. This in turn helps to try and encourage people to find these businesses and see for themselves the unique and interesting products they sell, along with the services they provide.
