With less than a month to go, it’s time to make sure The Cotswold Baby & Toddler Show is firmly in your diary! Here are 10 reasons to drop by Pittville Pump Room come Sunday May 14th:
First things first, this year our dedicated baby & toddler show is completely free for entrants! Yes, you don’t have to pay a penny to join in the fun and get access to the brilliant deals and discounts on offer from our exhibitors. If you’re a nearby parent or grandparent, you’ve really got nothing to lose from popping in and having a nose…
Exhibitors? We’ve got everything covered!
We’re thrilled to be fully booked with an array of family-focused exhibitors, all eager to showcase their latest baby & toddler offerings. You can expect everything from the coolest kids’ fashion (Lennie & Co) to once-in-a-lifetime baby keepsakes (Baby Prints), baby-wearing tips and products (Action Baby Carriers and The Gloucestershire Sling Library) to pregnancy & parenting support (Relaxed Birthing, Cheltenham Maman, Mums Fit) and much more.
Live Music at the bandstand
Get ready for proper British summer vibes with live music from the Pittville’s bandstand. There will be a brass band ready to delight ears old and young; the perfect setting to see your little music lovers wiggly and boogieing in the sunshine!
Get snapped in our free family photobooth
How would your toddler like to share a scene with Peppa Pig? Now they can! Cheltenham Rocks are bringing you a fun FREE family photobooth; grab the whole family, pick a backdrop, and pull out your silliest grins. Cheeeese!
Take a closer look at a real fire engine!
This one wasn’t intended for the mums, we promise… Our local fire heroes will be on hand to chat to parents and children about what they do and how to keep fire safe at home. If you’re lucky, wannabe firefighters might even get a sit inside a real fire engine… Get your cameras ready.
Swat up with our demonstrations & talks
The final details are being secured and we’re really excited about the demonstrations and talks taking place during the day! Get yourself along to a free class with Miniature Music, share your love of languages with your little one at a session with Babel Babies, get crafty with a Creation Station demo, or see what getting fit with Mums Fit is all about. We’ve also got talks from the fire brigade, a male midwife (yes, they do exist!) and more – keep an eye on our Facebook page for details soon.
Watch our fashion show
The Cotswold Baby & Toddler fashion show starts at 11am. Featuring the latest designs from kidswear favourites including Jojo Maman Bébé and Frugi, adorned by the sweetest local models; it’s a must-see for anyone whose child’s clothes collection is bigger than their own!
Try out Cheltenham’s biggest playground
We confess, we’re not responsible for this one. But we’re pretty chuffed to have Cheltenham’s biggest playground on our door step in Pittville Park. Cheltenham-based parents will already know there’s something for everyone – from toddler-safe trampolines to tween only tube slides, pirate-inspired sand pit to swings for all sizes! If you’re coming from further afield, schedule in some time to give it a whirl. And maybe an ice-cream from the kiosk after?
Grab a goody bag
If you’re in it for the freebies, put an early start in your diary. We are thrilled to have 100 goody bags ready for our first visitors, with samples and discounts galore. Look out for platinum goody bags on offer from some of our exhibitors too who will be giving them away on their social media channels.
Have a picnic in the park after
Pittville Pump Room takes pride of place in one of Cheltenham’s finest parks meaning it’s the perfect spot for a picnic! Pack your sarnies, Nom-Nom pouches, and wet wipes (of course) and fingers crossed the weather is as glorious as the views.
