Matfen Hall Hotel Golf and Spa is welcoming its first ever baby show.

The North East Baby Show, is the idea of Amy Brooks, 28, from Stocksfield who is bringing the event for expecting parents to Matfen’s East Wing on Sunday 23rd April.

There will be 35 north east exhibitors on the day, showcasing products and services to parents and babies, including Ralph and Mimi made to measure children’s clothing, Anu Therapies reflexology and Just For Tiny People teepees and toys.

The baby show is a ticketed event where guests can enjoy, exclusive offers, food and drink, free samples and goodie bags from 11am – 4pm.

Amy said: “I was looking for a venue that offered both space, luxury and comfort, for families or expectant parents. Matfen Hall offered all these things. With it being a popular venue, as well as family friendly, it was the perfect location for this.

Victoria Paterson at Matfen Hall said: “We are very experienced in organising weddings and wedding open days and we are thoroughly enjoying organising our first ever Baby Fair.

“When Amy approached us to host the Baby Show we were more than happy to accommodate. This is great event for new parents or parents to be in Northumberland to come and have a look round some unique stalls. This is an exciting time for them and we want them to have a nice day out.”

Matfen Hall, Raring to go, Mill Volvo and Robson print are sponsoring the event.
