Hip North West parenting publication, ParentFolk, are pleased to announce Modern Little People as the event sponsor for their forthcoming family social event The ParentFolk Weekender, LUXE Edition.

The event, which comes to Victoria Baths, Manchester, on Saturday 14th April is the next in a series of alternative family events curated by the North West’s modern parenting title.

“We’re excited to be collaborating with ParentFolk for their Manchester Weekender.” Said Leonie Fisher, Founder of kids interiors and lifestyle brand, Modern Little People.

“We were one of their pop up retail traders at the ParentFolk’s Seasonal Shindig Weekender back in November and had so much fun. This unique event gives us a great platform on which to meet with parents face to face. Although we are an online business there’s a team of real people behind it, and we love to step beyond the tech and get out into the marketplace to meet our customers and engage with new ones.

For us collaborating with ParentFolk feels like a natural fit, they understand their audience. As a mother of four, ParentFolk’s founder, Nic Spindler and her team curate these engaged and unique events that go all out to deliver a great experience for both parents and children alike. The atmosphere is like no other with a line-up of great entertainment and activities to keep everyone happy – who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

As a mother myself, there’s no greater joy than seeing your child happy and having fun exploring new surroundings and ParentFolk seem to have the eye for choosing cool and quirky venues with plenty to discover. With a relaxed vibe, there’s no judgement at these events, just a great laid back atmosphere where families get social together.”

Commenting on the sponsorship announcement, Nic Spindler, Founder of ParentFolk said: “I’m delighted that Modern Little People had such a great experience at our last event that they wanted to collaborate further with us for this unique Manchester weekender. We’re excited that they’ll be using the weekender to launch more of their unique brands and kids room set-ups as well as showcasing some exciting local collaborations.

The Modern Little People team are a creative bunch with endless ideas, so we’re really excited about their dedicated family pop up. We know that our family audience will love discovering all they have to offer and we’re particularly excited about their summer escape pop up; think Hawaiian shirts, sunglasses, oversized flamingo’s and a great photo opportunity and you’re half way there!”

The ParentFolk Weekender takes place on Saturday 14th April 11.30am-4.30pm at Victoria Baths, Manchester. There’ll be great food from Vigour Kitchen, bar takeover from Love Thy Neighbour, a host of contemporary arts & crafts for littlefolk, live DJ’s, Family Rave, modern face art, family pop ups and Beauty pop ups from Harvey Nichols.
