Sign up for our monthly guide to what's on for families

We try to keep our listings as up to date as possible but things do change so it can be worth phoning ahead to check the event you want to go to is still running. Additionally some baby and toddler groups are run in term time only, we’ve stated this in the times if we’re aware of it.

There’s always something new going on, If you know of a group that you love but you can’t see it listed, then tell us about it so we can spread the word.

The Baby & Toddler groups listed are generally free or not for profit activities. There are lots more classes that are paid for, visit our Classes pages for more information on what’s available.
