What is Indie Durham City?

Indie Durham City is a campaign to support and promote independent shops, cafes, restaurants and other businesses in Durham city centre.

Funded by the City of Durham Parish Council and managed by Gateshead-based retail consultants CannyInsights.com, Indie Durham City is a new campaign – running since May 2020 – to support and promote independent shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and other businesses in Durham’s historic city centre as they navigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Businesses based within the Parish Council area can access marketing and mentoring support from retail expert Graham Soult free of charge.

CannyInsights.com have created this simple website to answer frequently asked questions about the project, explain what support is available, and provide an application form to make it easy for Durham businesses to get involved.
