Being a new mum isn’t easy! In fact, it’s a completely new world. It can be lonely, confusing, and sometimes you can feel like you’re failing. The good news is, you’re not alone! Our This Mum Is campaign in partnership with Nuby wants to help new mums get out of the house, meet other like-minded women, and have some fun!

We’re bringing an indoor festival-vibe event to Manchester at Home Sweet Home, Great Northern, and there’ll be lots of stuff happening on the day:

  • Hear from special guest and gorgeous new mum Gemma Atkinson, as she shares her own experience of motherhood – the good and the bad!
  • Show off your mum-moves with Dance Like a Mother, Manchester’s awesome baby wearing dance class, where you and your baby can boogie together to Beyoncé!
  • There’s always first-aid at a festival, but luckily this is just a first-aid taster-session to give you some top tips on how to look after your little one.
  • And your baby will love to play in our secret sensory area!

And if that’s not enough we’ll have mummy mocktails, funky clothes-stall Mysterywoo, sweet treats and a fabulous Nuby goody-bag.

Tickets cost £10 per adult, with £5 going to children’s charity Cash for Kids, and the other £5 redeemable on the day to spend at the event. Entry for babies/toddlers is free, but they must be accompanied by a paying adult.

This event has now sold out.
