News: Young Entrepreneur Launches TV Channel


    Young entrepreneur 11-year-old Henry Patterson is celebrating the first anniversary of his business, children’s gift brand Not Before Tea, by launching an online TV channel.

    Henry will also produce and present Not Before T-V. His online adventures with Bubbles the Goldfish, a character in one of Henry’s books, will see him make, bake, read stories and discover cool new things. The channel also offers the chance to follow Henry as he runs his business and meets important people.

    “I wanted to set up a video channel so children can get involved with Not Before Tea, get to know the characters and follow my business adventures,” says Henry.

    “When I do school book tours, I get asked so many questions about how I published my book, how I got started and what I do when I am not at school or running my business. Not Before T-V shows you what goes on behind the scenes.

    “New videos will be added every week and I really hope my viewers will join in and send pictures, photos and stories of their own.

    “So many children love to write and I would love to read the best stories on the channel.”

    In just 12 months, Not Before Tea has launched more than 50 products, all designed by Henry, which are stocked in more than 55 outlets across the UK.
