Pop Up Shops Handbook

By: Transported

Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme that aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities. This guide written on behalf of Transported by Dan Thompson of the Empty Shops Network, explains how to use empty shops as an effective arts space.

Finding a Location for your Pop Up Shop
Finding a location for your pop up shop can be tricky, but it’s not too hard to get into an empty shop, especially if you lay good foundations. But start early as it can take a long time – and don't get hung up on one unit, keep your options open and talk to as many people as possible.

To find our Transported pop up shop spaces, we spoke to:

  • Letting agents
  • Local shops
  • Shopping centre managers
  • Local council
