Let’s Have Fun In London Town?

Hi everyone,
Hope you’ve all been enjoying the amazing weather we’ve been having. We certainly have … Can you tell by the lack of blog posts? Also been in the process of getting Port Avenue sorted too, coming along nicely but slowly – fingers crossed we will be launched very soon. Would love to know what everyone else has been up to. If you are struggling for things to do I have some events to share with you.

Did you know you can take your little one to the cinema with you to watch a movie?
Picture House Stratford East have an awesome clubs for you to join.
Big Scream Club: This club offers films which are exclusively for parents with babies under the age of one year old. You can enjoy the latest releases from their regular programme accompanied by baby in a safe and comfortable environment. What more could you ask for.

The Next Show: Monsters University 2D [U] – Tuesday 16th July 2013 @ 11AM

When Hayden was under one, I would tend to get really bored and I wasn’t aware that my local cinema provided this awesome service. I would absolutely go when I have number two (whenever that comes). 

The fact that they provide Low lighting so you can still see what’s going on and they have nappy changing facilities. 

Plus about the cinema, great staff, awesome management & the popcorn is so lush. Don’t forget to checkout the bar while you’re there they sell lovely soft drinks other then the average fizzy pop. **FACT I used to work there, they didn’t have Big Scream then.
N.B. These screenings are for parents and babies only. No baby, no entry. All attendees are required to join the Big 
Scream Club with the exception of Stratford Picturehouse, London, The Cameo and The Belmont Picturehouse.
Never underestimate what you can find at the library.
The British Library has such a great  free drop in event happening Saturday 13th July 2013

11AM – 4:30PM
The Full English Discovery Day is a folk-flavoured day for all the family.
Exciting activities on the day – Create, Dance, Make Music, Sin, Look and Listen and a Grand Finale where you can take part in an English Procession & Ceilidh.
The weather is going to be amazing so this would be awesome fun.
N.B. Please note that some activities are weather dependant.

Great event for adults also from The British Library: Propaganda Exhibition
Babies are discovering space too, yes you heard me right.
