Small Business Saturday - Rochdale's Hidden Gem

We had some brilliant news this week! The Studio has been short listed for an award from Blue Orchid to be Rochdale's Hidden Gem!!

In the past we have ourselves referred to the Studio as a 'hidden gem' so when the opportunity to apply for this award as part of Small Business Saturday came up we couldn't miss it.

We believe we are Rochdale's Hidden Gem. Based in Littleborough, one of Rochdale’s ‘jewels in the crown’. Littleborough’s location at the foot of the Pennine Edge on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border and its proximity to outstanding landscapes make it an attractive tourist destination.

Our aim is to provide a family attraction that serves not only the local community by providing children’s art and craft activities that educate and develop creativity but that also support the wider community. The Studio and its offer attracts visitors with children from outside the Rochdale Borough, in turn they explore the local area, visit shops, cafes or restaurants and subsequently our fellow business community benefits.

The Studio has been purposefully created and developed solely by an experienced arts educator with a unique vision. Innovative in that not only do we provide such a wide range of family focused creative activities, unlike any other venue in the Rochdale Borough, but that we offer all this within a retail premises in heart of Littleborough town centre. 

The Studio makes a positive contribution to the local community, the local economy and children’s education and experiences, it is these ‘harder to measure’ and less obvious outcomes that make this small business Rochdale’s Hidden Gem.

The Star Tree Studio ‘sparkles’ both literally and metaphorically, sparkly sequins and glitter are of course a part of each day here but it is the vision, passion and commitment we have demonstrated plus the loyalty and support we have gained from local parents and children, brings the true shine and ‘sparkle’ to this small business. 

If the Studio won this award it would have a great impact on the business growing forward, support our development of provision and access to funding; in essence it would help open more doors and in turn enable us to continue to provide this unique positive service to our local community. It would be an amazing accolade and a scoop for Littleborough too.   

To win we need as many votes as possible so we are asking all our friends and supporters to please vote for us!
