Here’s your September Marketing Calendar, full of ideas and inspiration in the month ahead.

The month of September celebrates lots of foodie occasions, so get ready for a feast!

It’s ‘Organic’ September, you find out more from the Soil Association website. It’s also ‘Sourdough’ September, so I’ve found you a great article here on the Delicious Magazine website.

This month, children return to school and for a lot of businesses I speak to, it feels like the first month of the year. As a self-confessed stationery geek, I love shopping for new notebooks, pens and other bits and bobs.

So, here it is… I’ve carefully curated lots of other occasions this month that you can plan your marketing calendar around them.
