Following the success of their June to August run, The Pop-Up Club will be returning to 62 King Street this October.


Founded by Tillie Peel, The Pop Up Club provides retail space to help artists, makers and emerging brands nurture and grow their businesses. Tillie is now on a mission to support and promote makers and creators in Manchester and the surrounding areas.


Tell us a little bit about you and the story behind  your brand.

I started out as a market trader in Essex with a dream of having my own shop, and after leaving my local high street market I decided to start my own in a pub car park. I was eventually offered spaces within empty shops and that’s how The Pop-Up Club was born.


How would you summarise your brand?

The Pop-Up Club provides affordable retail spaces for artists, makers and small indie businesses.


What does shopping ‘small’ or ‘local’ really mean for independent business?

Shopping small and local means the world to independent businesses. All of our traders put their heart and soul into their work, and into producing gifts that are ethical and of high quality. Every sale made has a huge impact on their business growth.
