We also have bottle warming facilities available at all our events. However you would like to feed your child we will try and make you as comfortable as possible.

If your child gets lost at one of our events please contact a member of the Events Team immediately. We can provide you with free ID wristbands for your child when you enter the Show, this allows you to write your mobile number on the wristband, and means that we can contact parents immediately should we find a lost child.
"What a fab event! I have just moved up from London so I have been to the Excel baby event which is much larger. However I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. All the staff were fab and all the people on the stalls were very friendly. I loved the softplay area and will be booking this for my little girl's birthday in the Summer."
"Overall, my experience of the Bedfordshire Baby & Toddler show, was nothing but exceptional....the event was full of pleasant surprisesthat kept me on my feet from opening until close - well, except for the 15 minutes I took out of the day to eat cake."
We approached the entry doors and were greeted by very welcomingly staff with a delightful goody bag, which by the way had some real treats inside!
We entered an absolutely huge sports hall, filled with tables upon tables of different companies and brands, and a huge flow of other guests exploring everything on offer to us…I saw so many fun things - like a bouncy castle, a nursery had brought along a sensory play area, a table full of refreshments, I also saw a generous amount tables and chairs to have a pit stop if need be. Considering how busy it was there we never battled to get seating or had to wait even. This was fab!
I look forward to next year’s show and will be delighted to attend again.
"It was a lovely event I would definitely go again next time and I would recommend it to friends and family! The organisers should be proud of all the hard work they put in to make it so successful."
"We came just after 1:30pm & had an absolutely great time! Thank you so much for this well organised & friendly event!
My daughter kept saying she'd been to a party after dancing with the New Stars Arts Academy (& will be going to see them again next weekend!), getting a bracelet, a new cup, playing in the sandpit and the bouncy castle & topped off by meeting Minnie Mouse! We all had a great couple of hours! Thank you!"
As we entered we were greeted by very welcoming staff,and received a lovely goody bag.
I was pleasantly surprised at how many people attended the event, the sports hall was absolutely huge, and it was packed.
Each company had their own table which was filled with different things, information and products to purchase...I really wish that there was something like this when I was pregnant, because it was full of useful information.
