Refreshers is an annual festival at Farnham Maltings designed especially for those who have retired, or are approaching retirement, to find new connections and fresh inspiration.
Taking the model of a typical university freshers fair, Refreshers showcases a wide range of clubs, societies, organisations and companies each with diverse opportunities for those living in and around Farnham.
Retirement doesn’t have to mean a time to start slowing down, it can be a fantastic chance to take up a range of new hobbies, learn something new and give a little time back to the community.
Refreshers is organised as part of Farnham Maltings’ Arts & Health programme and in collaboration with Meet Me at the Maltings. For more details, please visit farnhammaltings.com/artsandhealth.
Refreshers will next be held on Monday 26 February, 2018 at Farnham Maltings. This is a free, non-ticketed event and open to everyone (no matter what your age!).
Exhibitor applications are now open for Refreshers 2018 (closing deadline Monday 2 November 2017).
