The Weekend Wanderlist Directory is the UK’s first dedicated community connecting growing small businesses in the hospitality and leisure trade with people looking for things to do on a weekend.

The Directory is fully searchable by region and/or category and makes it simple for consumers to find the very best, trusted business to visit on their weekend. It also provides the ultimate platform for heart-centred small businesses to reach a huge audience of highly-motivated individuals. Building your brand faster than you may be able to do single-handedly.

However, not every business makes it onto the Weekend Wanderlist Directory. People trust this site and my judgement; they rely on me to give quality recommendations. As such, I only let specially-selected businesses that I truly rate join the Weekend Wanderlist. So if you’re genuinely a business you think I’d love, apply now – and tell me why you deserve a slot.

Approved Weekend Suppliers Get:

As well as your own dedicated supplier page where you can showcase the very best your business, you also get an official approved supplier badge and access to an exclusive digital growth Facebook group. Plus…

Claire Robinson Founder of Weekend Candy

I can’t wait to add you to the team! 

What do you look for in a small business?

I love small businesses who are passionate about the value they add to people’s lives. So I look for start-ups, growing small businesses and more established brands that will inspire my readers. I want people to be excited to try your business on a weekend because it has character and quirk, it’s unique and different, it’s trendy and innovative. If I’m excited to try you, I’m pretty sure my readers will be too.

How do I get approved?

All applications are vetted by me and/or my Weekend Candy team and measured against our own criteria. I pride myself on only working with heart-centred, professional suppliers who provide high quality products and services that my readers can trust.

Is this the right investment for my business?

I understand how every penny counts when you run a small business, trust me. And whilst I can’t guarantee I’ll transform your customer base overnight, I do promise that you will be seen by people who want new weekend inspiration. So if it’s growth you want, this is an affordable way of stimulating the process. Plus, I promote every listing to the best of my ability – to make you really stand out.

Why do you charge a fee for a listing?

Simply because I need to cover my time uploading your listing to my site and creating the assets that I then share across my social channels. If I did it all for free, a huge chunk of my day would disappear and Weekend Candy would become unprofitable. A small fee is the best way to make the Weekend Wanderlist Directory work for both of us.

What happens next?

If you’re approved, I’ll email you with the information I need to get your listing live. Once I have all the information, I’ll create your directory listing – all listings go live between 1 – 5 days after receiving payment. I’ll then create the assets to promote your brand on my social media channels.
