The face of the high street is changing, creating challenges and opportunities for local businesses.

High Streets Bucks, a new local event, will be bringing together those running businesses in town centres with retail and commercial experts and will showcase some of the ways in which technology, culture and locally led approaches are helping to influence the success of the high street.

If you have a stake or interest in any of Buckinghamshire’s town centres, this free event could help you to stimulate ideas which will influence the future success of the local market towns.
