Our Kids Social: 2017

Our Kids Social: 2017

Here at Parentfolk we love to hear about when parents are rocking it their own way and Our Kids Social is no exception.

Started by three friends Hannah, Alice and Jo who found themselves pregnant within weeks of each other, the concept was to change the way we thought about socialising as a family (bravo we hear you say!).

Hannah told Parentfolk: “We’d all been to lots of baby groups and yes they were nice, but we wanted to create something we actually wanted to go to which included good music, creativity we could all get involved in.

“Baby groups were often in the week so our partners couldn’t go and there wasn’t really anything at the weekend and so Our Kids Social was born in Sale.”

Fast forward 15 months and the friends have now been the directors of several sell-out events across Sale and Stockport with plans for their biggest event to date at the family hotspot, Z Arts in Manchester this Spring.

“We’ve got lots of dates in mind for 2017 including some festivals,” added Hannah, a deputy headteacher.

“We all work full time but this is a passion of ours and we know from the reaction that it is needed for parents, who like us, want to spend time with their kids in a fun creative atmosphere…and if there is a bar there too, that’s a bonus!”

With a live vinyl DJ, full stocked bar, baby sensory, toddler play, arts and crafts for the older ones and even a silent disco, Our Kids Social was born out of a desire to continue to do the things they loved, but adapting to now involve their children.

And that’s music to our ears.
