We are delighted to announce that we will be holding another baby show in the autumn: The Clapham Pregnancy and Baby Show will take place at Chatham Hall, (opposite Northcote Library), on November 14th, 2.30-5.30pm.
Clapham’s first local baby event took place earlier this year, organised and hosted by a team of 4 local businesses. The event was very popular for local new parents and parents-to-be, with around 250 visitors enjoying the show on Northcote Road.
SWLTV made a short TV programme about it, which can be viewed here.
As you will see from the video, the event is intentionally on a much smaller scale than the big Olympia baby shows, and much more local - and feedback from attendees endorsed this approach as being useful, informative and fun. We even had a celebrity mum (supermodel Erin O’Connor) along to open the event, adding a touch of glamour.
The event is once again being run by 4 local businesses: Neighbourhood Midwives, Baby Intuition, Hello Mums and Match Up Mums. As a team we are all committed to supporting parents in their parenting journey, both through our work in own businesses and through this local event. All 4 business owners are available for contact should you require a quote from one of us.
The aim of the Clapham Pregnancy and Baby Show is to introduce pregnant women and new parents to many of the fantastic local businesses that are available in our area, from hypnobirth experts and birth doulas to reflexologists, maternity wear specialists and many more.
We are also excited to welcome local retailer, Peppermint, on board as a sponsor. Peppermint will host the ‘equipment zone’, giving expectant parents a chance to try out a range of products from prams to slings and high chairs. Peppermint are also bringing along the UK’s brand leader in car seats, Maxi Cosi, to run an informative talk and product demonstration with some very useful travel-safety tips.
The event is a completely free, ticketed event and will include expert talks from guest speakers. In addition to Peppermint, over 30 local businesses will have a stand at the event, to explain their products and services to any interested parents-to-be.
A raffle for the Children’s Osteopathic Centre charity includes great prizes from a range of exclusive brands including Aden and Anaïs and Sammy Duder, and attendees will also get a goody bag full of treats and vouchers.
Hamptons Estate Agents are again on board as Community sponsors of the event, as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting local businesses and local parents. The event will again be promoted on social media and with our official online journal, at Clapham Mums.
