There’s a quiet revolution happening under our noses. People building independent and sustainable businesses from their passion or bright idea - many in a very non-traditional business way!
We are now living in the age where digital, when applied in the right way, allows anyone to bring their skills, creativity or idea to life.
We have three businesses who have harnessed the power of digital to build significant businesses that support themselves and their families based on a maker’s passion, an artistic flair or just an itch they needed to scratch.
We are delighted to be holding this Small Business Festival Event in one of Eltham's newest venues. Platform 3095 is conveniently located right at Eltham Railway Station if you are coming by public transport and there is ample parking behind the venue on St Laurence Lane if you are coming by car.
