Fiver Fest 2020

Following the success of last year, Fiver Fest is set to return to Frome’s streets on 15th -17th October.  Part of the national Totally Locally campaign, Fiver Fest celebrates local businesses, often run by families or individuals, making a real contribution to our unique town.

2020 has been a hugely challenging year for retailers and spending just £5 a week in local shops can have a big impact on our high streets, boosting the local economy and increasing employment.

Fiver Fest also presents a great opportunity to step into a shop you’ve never been into before and discover what makes Frome’s independents so special.

Take a look at what’s on offer so far for Frome Fiver Fest 2020.
