Our New Monthly Family Show @ The Brunswick, Brighton

mamas and papas header

Our brand new monthly event at The Brunswick Pub, Hove. Each month we’ll have a different theme –  Prizes for everyone in fancy dress (even the grown-ups!) We’ll be singing our most excellent songs, playing silly games and telling silly stories! It’s suitable for primary school age children and their little siblings.

Each month will feature a Kids Open Mic – so start practicing your favourite song, maybe you could even sing one with your parent or carer – we are looking for the Von Trapp family!

We will also feature a special guest each month – a grown-up who has kids who is also a musician, singer, in a band or anything else you can think of! We want child-friendly songs/music and are working towards building a new network of artists…I feel a festival coming on….no, yes, maybe an album!

Please get in touch if you’re interested or would like to find out more.

Mamas & Papas Rock: Saturday 5th January, 2.30pm-4.30pm (Doors 2pm)
