On Sat 04 December 2021, 45 young entrepreneurs aged 7–17 will be launching businesses and making their own money at the Farnham Children’s Business Fair (CBF), selling everything from 3D printed toys, soaps and scented candles, to Christmas decorations and stocking fillers. The CBF are taking over the courtyard at December's maltings monthly market.

They’ll have planned their business, created their brand, built a marketing strategy and manufactured their products - ready to sell to customers at this one-day marketplace. Throughout the day, the children are responsible for setup, sales and customer interaction - and making their own money. Parents and adults are actively discouraged from getting involved!

This is the first Farnham CBF event and builds on the incredible success of the Guildford Children’s Business Fair - that, since 2018, has seen more than 500 local young entrepreneurs launch more than 280 businesses. The July 2021 CBF event on Guildford High Street featured 65 entrepreneurs launching 40+ businesses and selling to thousands of happy (and amazed) customers. The great majority of these young entrepreneurs made £100s in revenue - many converting their takings into jaw-dropping profit margins.
