As you may, or may not be aware, the first Mums Show Live is coming to Alexandra Palace in London this May from Thursday 16th until Sunday 19th.
The organisers of Mums Show Live describe it as:
FOR FAMILIES WITH 4-12 YEAR OLDS, Mums Show Live! is your chance to get face to face with the discussion raised by other parents, books, newspaper articles, TV shows, expert blogs and websites as well as teachers and of course our own mums and dads. The response has been phenomenal and we’re confirming the sponsors, exhibitors, partners, experts and celebrities that will bring the event to life.
The show will provide theatre sessions and discussions, shopping and entertainment for the whole family. There is a comprehensive schedule of topics for conversation and inspiration across the four days including Sibling Rivalry, School Gates, Not Stupid – Autism/Behaviour Issues and Too Much Information – are your kids at risk from information on the internet.
The exhibition is well-organised with designated spaces for different activities and events including The Fridge Door which is a place to meet and eat – and leave magnetic messages for friends and family on the fridge door!, Lifestyle which is all about activities and safety tips, The School Gates for learning activities and teaching aides, Mums The Word – all about treats just for us women, Fashion, House and Garden, The Marketplace and The Treehouse which is all about entertainment for the kids.
Exhibitors include Butlins, Kumon Educational, Morphy Richards, My Family Magazine and Usborne Books
