Small Business Network to Host First-Ever Local Businesses Summer Bash in Balham

The Small Business Network is thrilled to announce its first-ever Local Businesses Summer Bash, scheduled for 7th July 2024 at The Bedford pub in Balham. This vibrant community event will feature a bustling marketplace, engaging taster sessions for both adults and children, and opportunities to connect with local businesses and community members over drinks.

Attendees can explore a variety of market stalls offering diverse products, ranging from handcrafted art prints and cards to organic baby clothes and yoga apparel. Children can enjoy face painting and yoga classes, while adults can participate in practical workshops on subjects such as first aid, social media, video content creation, sales techniques, voice coaching, and embodied movement. Additionally, mini headshot sessions will be available to help enhance your online presence.

Event organiser Laura Shimili Mears says, “Building on the success of our Christmas fair, we’re excited to present the Local Businesses Summer Bash! This event creates a vibrant platform for local businesses to showcase their offerings and connect with the Balham community. Come along and be part of it.”

Louise Downham of Louise Rose Photography comments, “Video has become crucial for businesses to connect with customers, but many struggle with getting started. During the event, I’ll be holding complimentary video sessions for businesses. You can walk away with a short video clip perfect for your social media or website. Join me and let’s harness the power of video!”
