I’m India and I run The Norfolk Bump, Baby and Toddler Show.
A little background information on me: I’m a mum to two pre-schoolers, one of which will going to big school in September (completely torn as to whether I will cry or crack open the champagne!) and the other has just started going to preschool, her polo top literally hangs down to her knees and just runs in without even glancing back at me.
Fun fact: I was actually 9 days overdue with my little girl when I ran the April show in 2016, I had a lot of surprised exhibitors when I was asked how pregnant I was. I will never forget the look on their faces!
The Norfolk Bump, Baby and Toddler Show has been running for 7 years now, Norfolk’s LONGEST running baby and parenting event! This year we have been sponsored by the fantastic people over at Orchard Toys, they have sponsored us in previous years and we are very lucky that provide something really fantastic every year for our goody bags.
The Norfolk Bump works on the ethos of supporting local business and this year we teamed up with Her Business Brew and ran a competition for a small, local business to win a spot at the show, plus lots of other great extras. The winner, Rowan Bay, will be in attendance with all of their baby wraps. Personally, supporting small businesses is super important and believe me, I know how hard it is to make an impact in your target market! When you use a local company you can find such wonderful products and often something completely unique.
Talking of unique, we are SOOO looking forward to taking over OPEN Norwich, our beautiful new venue in the heart of the city. It used to be a bank, the main area has fantastic high ceilings and a great sense of occasion, perfect for The Norfolk Bump! With so many great businesses in attendance, a mixture of FREE Taster Sessions, FREE Children’s entertainment by Dave Doughnut and also a UNICORN (Yes…I did say Unicorn!) plus information and advice stands. There really is something that will appeal to everyone and not to forget Norwich Mumbler will be there with goody bags for the first 25 parents and lots of FREE tea!
OPEN will also be having their café open for drinks and light bites, plus we have some dedicated private changing and feeding rooms available.
Come along and celebrate all things bumps, babies and toddlers!
The Norfolk Bump, Baby and Toddler Show is on Sunday 13thMay 2018 at OPEN in Norwich, 10.30am until 3.30pm
