We’ve been busy bees at The Pop-Up Club HQ, and are excited to reveal our latest lineup of pop-ups to inject some much-needed ‘small biz’ pizazz back into UK high streets.
Our beloved Chelmsford pop-up on Bond Street is here to stay a little longer – yippee! Everything in our store is created or supplied by a local, independent business owner or artist, all with sustainability and eco-practices at heart.
From May, we’re returning to Seven Dials Market and will be providing a space for local sellers to showcase their products to Londoners. Traders include a range of sustainable and hand-crafted products, including home to fashion from FUOCHI, accessories from HappyToteQuotes and jewellery from Beautiful Boho, alongside other gifts, art and homeware collections from 17th May – 23rd August.
We’re coming to the North! Our first Manchester pop-up on the iconic King Street will celebrate the very best creative and small businesses the North has to offer. From jewellery to homeware, every product will be sustainably made by real people who love what they do. Local businesses taking part include The Neighbourhood Threat, The Red Spotty Dog and Timia Boutique. Opens 12th June to the end of August.
Lastly and certainly not least, we’re pleased to announce we’re coming back to one of our favourite cities, Brighton. Our six-week pop-up from 3rd July will bring a colourful, eclectic and unique shopping experience featuring an amazing lineup of ethical and quirky local brands for new customers to discover.
The Pop-Up Club have enjoyed great success pre-pandemic, but now more than ever there’s a need to attract shoppers back to the high street. Many have gotten used to shopping online, so it’s essential that there are initiatives to pull them back to the shops.
Our mission is simple: We want to provide artists, makers, designers, and small businesses that have sustainability at their core, affordable pop-up spaces, as well as drive footfall to the area.
Despite plenty of challenges and odds stacked against us, in 2020 The Pop-Up Club initiative generated an income of over £140,000 for small businesses trading in our spaces!
Thank you to our wonderful community of businesses and customers (old and new) who continue to support each other and The Pop-Up Club’s mission to shop small and sustainably.
We look forward to welcoming both traders and shoppers to The Pop-Up Club in which we predict will be our best ever summer!
Love, The Pop-Up Club x
