Free entry: Please note tickets are available on the door but if you were able to book in advance, then this would greatly assist us for organising the fair.

Following our successful pilot event in 2016, we are delighted to bring the festival back for 2017!

Modelled on a typical university freshers fair; the retirement refreshers fair will showcase a whole range of clubs, societies and organisations for those who are retired or approaching retirement, all within the local area.

Retirement doesn’t have to mean a time to start slowing down, it can mean a chance to take up a range of new hobbies, learn something new and give a little time back to the community.

Organised as part of Farnham Maltings’ Arts & Health programme and in collaboration with Meet Me at the Maltings. For more details, please visit
