The first Business Fair of the year will be held in Andover High Street on Friday, 11 May from 10am – 3pm.

The fair is an opportunity for local businesses to gain a day of High Street exposure and pitch their wares in the town centre. Businesses from a wide variety of sectors have attended previous fairs including local solicitors, estate agency, garden care, an electrical company and a martial arts school.

You will gain the opportunity to talk to prospective customers and increase customer awareness, as well as networking with the other participating businesses, all for a pitch fee of just £10.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Phil North, said: “The Business Fairs have been an established part of the High Street calendar for several years, and are a way of increasing the profile of local businesses which would not otherwise have a High Street presence. I am really pleased that we can continue to support this initiative and provide such a cost effective way for local businesses to gain brand awareness.”

For more information about the fair, or to book a pitch, contact Heather Whittam by email: or by telephoning 01264 368814.

A second Business Fair will follow on Friday, 7 September.
