The Return of the Norfolk Bump & Beyond Baby and Toddler Fair at The Norfolk Showground
**POSTPONED UNTIL 20th SEPTEMBER**
The Norfolk Bump & Beyond Baby and Toddler Fair is 6 years old in 2020 and the organisers are excited about watching “their baby” grow. The one-day event, on Sunday 29th March from 10am – 3pm is bursting with fantastic exhibitors from international companies to boutique local businesses showcasing everything from pregnancy to preschool all under one roof. The show is aimed at ages 0-5 years. With over 80 exhibitors at the show already confirmed and more bookings coming in daily, this is the place to be for all things bump and beyond!
This year, there will be two Live Stage areas, offering visitors the opportunity to listen to some of the region’s best pregnancy, baby and child companies in the area and have a go with taster sessions too. All of these activities are completely free and there is no need to book a space either. Simply turn up on the day and join in!
The Live Stage will feature 7 talks covering topics such a ‘Baby Prep for your VIP’ by One to Cherish, ‘Safe Eating Advice for little ones and The Treatment of Choking’ from Mini First Aid Norfolk and ‘Hypnobirth like a Boss’ by Stay Calm Mumma and Me.
The Activity Stage is all about demonstrations and taster sessions for parents and their little ones. In fact, there will be 7 different sessions to try! Parents can try some Pregnancy Yoga with ZenMuma Amber and an interactive taster session with Hartbeeps Norfolk for babies from 6 months to 4 years old. There will be vibrant colours, puppets, bubbles, music and fun! Plus much much more! Full details of our timetable can be found on the website www.bumpandbeyond.co.uk
Visitors can also expect inflatables and soft play galore to keep your little ones entertained. Not to mention a very special visit from Marshall from Paw Patrol.
Pregnancy and parenting can be a tiring business, so to help to recharge those batteries and take some time out, there is a dedicated Food Hall at the show. Catering for a variety of dietary needs, there will be something for everyone.
The event first moved to The Norfolk Showground in 2017, having previously been at St Andrews Hall in Norwich city centre.
The Showground is the perfect ‘buggy friendly’ venue with no steps or lifts to contend with, and everything on one floor.
Over the past few years, we have supported a variety of local child related charities and raised over £3,500 for charities such as Nelsons Journey, EACH NOOK Appeal, Norfolk & Norwich Univeristy Hospital NICU, The Benjamin Foundation and more recently TimeNorfolk. We are a Norfolk family, so to be able to put back into the local community is a priority. In 2020, we are supporting Break in the raffle on the day. We have been lucky enough to receive lots of fantastic raffle prizes from exhibitors and local companies, so keep your eyes peeled on the Facebook event page.
One lucky person can win a Silver Cross Pop Stroller in association with BabyPages at Necton in a free prize draw on the day. Just be sure to visit their stand, it’s as simple as that!
Advance discounted tickets are available online via the website www.bumpandbeyond.co.uk for just £4 for adults. Under 16’s are free. Tickets are also available on the day and are priced at £5 per adult. The first 400 families will also receive a free goody bag packed with baby magazines, samples and lots of goodies!
