Parliament Street will be brimming with fun things for kids to do over the Easter bank holiday weekend, with the Little Vikings Activity Zone and much more, but we can’t let the children have all the fun. This year we’re doing something slightly different at the York Easter Family Festival: offering a little treat for mums, mums-to-be and babies.
We’ve handed over to York-based Avocado Events, specialists in events for expectant and new parents, to co-ordinate something lovely. On Good Friday, head to the Little Vikings Activity Zone (outside Marks and Spencer) where there’ll be a ‘Yummy Mummy’ pampering station with Neal’s Yard Remedies. Enjoy a relaxing hand massage or facial whilst sampling the lovely organic products. Avocado will also be hosting a baby massage/ yoga demonstration class from 12noon to 1pm with Nurtured Nippers.
About Avocado (and details of their next event)
Kate set up Avocado Events last summer while on maternity leave to create events for expectant and new parents. Her launch ‘Bump & Beyond’ event took place in October and aimed to bring together local groups and businesses supporting pregnancy and parenthood. Since then Kate has gone on to run other events to support parents such as paediatric first aid and weaning. Kate’s next Bump & Beyond event is on Saturday 13th May from 2pm to 4pm at Hotel du Vin, York. Details of exhibitors can be found here www.facebook.com/avocadoevent. Tickets cost £5 including a goody bag, refreshments and cake! Contact for advanced tickets.
