Business coaches from the project will be on hand in the stand near the main arena, to give confidential enterprise support on how to bring ideas to life, start a business or a social enterprise, and talk through types of free help which may also be available.

If your business is already up and running but still in its early stages, Business Community Support Officers from Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber will be available to provide free guidance and advice.

Also on hand will be support teams from Rotherham markets for those interested in setting up a stall for the first time, and for those new business looking for low cost premises, the RiDO Business advisers will be able to guide you towards the special business incubation centres situated around Rotherham Borough.

Geoff Link from the Rotherham Enterprise Project, which is funded by The European Development Fund (ERDF), said: "We are thrilled to be offering essential industry know-how for people passionate about pursuing their own business or who have an interesting idea but just don't know where to start.
