Taking place on May 21, it will be the fourth running of the annual event, taking place this year from Friday, May 15, to Thursday, May 21.

The celebration will feature an exhibition of more than 100 businesses and organisations of all sizes, from sole traders through to multi-nationals, rubbing shoulders for a week.

Chairman of the business group, Tom Green said: “Too often the church is seen as ‘anti-business’, and indeed we are right to criticise the greed and recklessness which has led to the financial crisis.

“However, good business is the means by which we create wealth and manage sustainable economic growth in our communities, making it possible, in spite of the inevitable peaks and troughs of the economic cycle, to invest more in welfare and public services including health and education.
