Disco Mums - an all-female Manchester based DJ collective of seasoned clubbers (now proud parents) who are still out, still on it &...still playing records. Influenced by the scene in Manchester over the past 20 years, their roots are in nights like Electric Chair, Aficionado, Friends & Family, Homoelectric, Back to Basics and Bugged Out. They've been partying hard and collecting music for more than 15 years. In the past few years they've been having the time of their lives flexing their vinyl record collections as Disco Mums.

The Cequin Circus – Catch their shiney Disco Ball Dancers out to bedazzle, dance and shine bright at The Playhouse Project. They'll be bringing their hoops to entertain the kids on the dance floor.

Square Pegs’ll be screen printing and decorating Disco 45 record boxes. Teach the kids about life before digital, and take home the perfect Lego storage, all before lunchtime!

BLOOM Baby / Toddler Sessions are packed full of a range of activities to encourage baby's physical, emotional, cognitive and social development so your little one is constantly learning throughout. With music, pom-poms, baby yoga and massage, instruments, parachutes, sensory lights, bubbles, treasure baskets and more.

(Aimed at 0 - 4 year olds ONLY to ensure a safe space for little ones to relax and play).
