Follow @makeitbritishpopup to make sure you don't miss anything, and look for the hashtag #makeitbritishpopup for extra inspiration.

What products are being sold?

From jewellery to accessories, homeware to stationery, beauty and healthcare - even gifts for the pets! There is something for everyone.

Everything featured will be made in the UK!

If you sell products made in the UK sign up for membership before 18th October and we'll include you in the pop-up! Click here to join.

How do I buy from the individual sellers?

You order everything directly through the seller's own websites.

Buying directly means more of your Christmas gift budget goes straight to the companies that make the products and helps to support local manufacturing.

Will there be any discounts or special offers?

We are aware that this event takes place not too long before 'Black Friday' weekend. A time when the big guys offer seemingly irresistible deals.

Many of these 'deals' are not really a deal at all. We hate to break this to you, but lots of high street stores actually over-price products for the rest of the year in order to discount them on Black Friday.

In comparison, a UK-made product already offers great value in its quality, longevity and uniqueness. It's why you'll not see many UK-made brands taking part in Black Friday.

That being said, many of the companies taking part in the Make it British Pop-up are offering a special little something if you use our code.

The offer varies from company to company and more details will follow once you register.

Only ticket holders will receive the special code - make sure you register!

When is the virtual pop-up taking place?

The event begins at 9:30am on Friday 30th October and runs throughout the weekend.

A timetable of Instagram lives will be announced very soon.

I sell UK-made products can I promote them at this event?

Yes! You can sell your UK-made products at this event by becoming a member of Make it British.

Membership will not only give you the opportunity to get involved with the virtual pop-up, you'll also join a community of UK-made businesses and list your business in the Make it British Directory - the go to destination for consumers & buyers looking for British-made goods and manufacturers.
