The ParentFolk Weekender Seasonal Shindig Kicks Off The Countdown To Christmas

The festive season kicked off this weekend as we hosted The ParentFolk Weekender ‘Seasonal Shindig’ at  cool cultural hangout, Camp & Furnace in Liverpool.

Just shy of 1200  marvellous parentfolk and littlefolk came to kick off Christmas with us. Litttlefolk got stuck in with cool and quirky festive arts with Square Pegs making decorations, Christmas cards, wrapping paper and even screenprinting Christmas stockings! Then there was festive headband making with Papertown crafts,  swag making and festive florals with Flowers By Carys and some seriously seasonal face art by the ever so creative Cazzadoodle face painting.

A host of cool independent  brands joined us to showcase their amazing collections, providing the perfect excuse to kick off the Christmas shopping!

There were Christmas movies on the big screen, pop up story telling time from LittleFolk Tales, and on Saturday, lots of fun in Birdie Photobooth!

Our event sponsor’s Toddler Fun Learning brought their pop up panto, (we think a ParentFolk weekender would be the only place you’d see a dinosaur, a fox, a vet and superman on stage together, but  it worked) and the littlefolk loved it as their performances were streamed live over on Toddler Fun Learning’s facebook page!

The drink flowed, the gin bar was a hit, and the food was devoured! (Thanks Vigour Kitchen and Maray for bringing your great food pop ups to our event).

Fed, watered and feeling down right festive, guests were treated to the vocal talents of The Rock Choir (Merseyside) who took to the stage on Saturday, popping up and volunteering their time to support our charity The Teenage Cancer Trust!

DJ’s delivered  a soundtrack to the whole event with some old school beats, and then the family rave kicked off hosted by The Playhouse Project. This was the perfect way to round off a festive family social!

Thanks to everyone who came! We were blown away by your support and your lovely comments post event! We loved meeting you and to answer our most asked question this weekend… Yes, most definitely, The ParentFolk Weekender will be back after Christmas, details to be announced soon!
