Events Schedule 2020 

Business events now planned until the end of the year, our events are open to all members and non-members including business owners, employees, managers, volunteers from Thirsk and the surrounding areas:


With the update from The Government with regards to avoiding social contact with others due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Thirsk & District Business Association has decided to reschedule our networking events until it is safe to continue.

First and foremost within our decision is the health and safety of our attendees and venues.

Whilst it pains us to postpone, we know that unfortunately it is out of our hands and we must be diligent over the upcoming months, the well-being of our business community, our members and their friends and family is paramount.

We are very sorry for any disruption this has caused due to the postponement of these events and appreciate how much effort you all put in finding time in your busy schedules to attend our networking events.

We continue to support our business community during these times.
