The Mid Cheshire Business Forum is run by local business for local business – providing support, mentoring, insight, news and a united voice on matters affecting our business community.

No matter where you are in Mid Cheshire, what your trade is or how large or small your business is, the Mid Cheshire Business Forum is for you.

Our Meetings


Our meetings are usually held on evening of  the Second Tuesday of the month. (Except for December when we move to the First Tuesday).

Meetings can vary in structure, but normally include an element of networking. Seminars or presentations aimed at providing members with information and tools to help with the growth of their business or organisation.


Mid Cheshire is blessed by a far greater diversity of enterprises than can be found in most other areas of the UK – from High-Tech to Distribution, Retail to Construction, Dog Walking to Entertainment.

To allow our members to raise their profile, they have advanced, discounted access to the region’s largest, independent Business Showcase – held in June each year.


Mid Cheshire Business Forum will be launching its own Business Awards in Autumn 2018 to celebrate the high quality of best business practice on offer throughout our district.

The Awards will be open to all businesses and organisations across Mid Cheshire – with one category devoted to members of The Forum – and will be presented at a Gala Charity Dinner.
