UK Awareness days to inspire your content in November 2023

Here’s November’s round up of awareness days for you to sprinkle into your monthly social media content.  Whilst I wouldn’t recommend using ‘too’ many in your Instagram feed as it could dilute your key message, sharing a funny/interesting/thought provoking nod to an awareness day every now and then can help connect with your ideal customers around a shared interest.

Select a few days that mean something to you, that help you to tell a business story or feel right for supporting how you market your product or service.

November 2023 has no shortage of special awareness days – I’ve highlighted a few of my favourites and listed the rest of these special days. Most of them are UK based but there are few fun US and Worldwide dates dropped in there too where I think there may be social media content opportunities for my community.

Tap on each of the events below and they will take you directly to the organiser’s page or to more info.

*If I’ve missed any key dates, I apologise, this is no easy job and I’m providing this to you for free.

*Please check all dates before using them in your marketing. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the information. I’m just sharing my own research to make life easier for you.

*Lastly please do bring any dates I have missed to my attention and I can add them in for others to view.
