The Small Business Saturday bus tour is open to all local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to hear from local experts in business skills.

Winchester City Council, along with Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and Winchester Business Improvement District (BID), have arranged for local industry experts to give a series of short talks ranging from workplace pensions to effective website copy, and business rates relief to setting up a green enterprise.

Local entrepreneurs are invited to take part in as many sessions as they choose, all for free, and can register at for updates as the bus tour approaches.

Winchester is the only Hampshire location for the Small Business Saturday Bus in 2015. The bus will be in place at the top of the High Street, near the junction with St Thomas Street, from 10am to 2pm.
