The Parent and Baby Show Norfolk – March 2020!

The Parent and Baby Show Norfolk – March 2020!

The Parent and Baby Show is back in Norfolk this March and if you want to find out about all things baby and parent related in the area then this is the place to be!

Sunday, March the 15th is the date to put in your diary where you can join mamas at the helm, Alex and Kerry as they welcome you to Norfolk’s biggest and best loved bump to baby and toddler show!

From 10am to 3pm at the SportsPark UEA you will be able to enjoy taster sessions from a wealth of local activities for littles like Spinning Tots, Springtime Yoga and Heartbeeps music (full timetable below) as well as shop with over 80 local businesses, enjoy informative talks, massages and treatments, throw the kiddos into messy play and when exhausted from all the fun take a load off in the pop-up cafe or quiet feeding area – phew, that’s a lot to fit into a 5 hour period!

There’s all sorts on offer and with tickets costing just £2 (for anyone over the age of 2 years old) it could’t be better value. Or… Perhaps you’d like to go a little up market for the day and bag yourself a VIP entry for £8 which will also offer you a Mama Swag Bag filled to the brim with goodies!

I’ll be there with my old mucker Cookie as we take on the role of official blogging ambassadors for the show (you may remember us larking about at last year’s awards ceremony run by PABS – Here we are with Rebecca from The Coastal Mummy enjoying the photo booth action on the night)!

Cookie and I will also be privvy to a bit of inside action before the show when we will be joining the Parent and Baby Show crew for a day of fun on the Broads with Broadland Charters! Broadland Charters, created by Pam Robinson, will be the hosts for the show this March (they are the most glamorous skippered, day boat hire on the broads) and ahead of the date they will be taking us on a wonderful river cruise inviting us to try some of the things they have on offer like…

  • A wide range of special extras to make your cruise extra special including picnics, afternoon tea, handmade chocolates, canapes, champagne or wine.
  • Themed cruises celebrating special events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas and Easter (and everything else of course)!
  • Bespoke packages where your exact requirements, ideas and budgets can be worked to by Pam!

So, we can’t wait for that and we can’t wait for the show either – will you be joining us on the day? If so then you might want to take a look at this LONG lost of what’s on offer and make your own itinerary – I’m going to all the classes with Raff, he’s gonna LOVE it!
