ParentFolk and The White Horse Pub at Chester Racecourse announce the first ParentFolk Weekender.
A re-invention of the classic weekender, the focus will be on a family-friendly atmosphere, with plenty on offer to entertain the kids and with a cool and relaxed vibe for parents.
The two-day event will take place on Saturday and Sunday June 24 – 25 at the award-winning White Horse Pub at Chester Racecourse, between 12noon and 7pm on both days.
Created with passion and imagination, the event will be a celebration of creativity, fun and adventure, showcasing hand-picked activities and entertainments.
There will be arts and crafts, pop up orchestra sessions for toddlers, kid’s yoga, soccer skills for sporty types, circus skills workshops and plenty of creative play from LittleFolk partner Square Pegs who’ll be running sundowner headdress-making sessions and T-shirt printing for fashion conscious kids. Add to this magical storytelling for little daydreamers, a pop-up toddlerfolk zone to keep little ones entertained, and we think you’ve got yourself a pretty darn fine family social event!
ParentFolk will be able to treat themselves in the Pop-ups-pop-up area, a retail space featuring cool independent brands such as Spencer’s Friends, Outside The Lines, Albie & Sebastian, Our Kid, Oh Me Oh Mama and Scamp & Dude to name but a few!
Sit back and enjoy amazing food and drink from The White Horse BBQ whilst the garden bar mocktails and cocktails will help you cool down in style. If you’re looking to enjoy a delicious sit down lunch indoors then tables will be available to pre-book ahead of the event.
