Our first show!

Wake up Gigs showcase new artists for parents and their babies to enjoy live music and the gig experience in a relaxed atmosphere, a baby friendly venue and at baby friendly times! As parents of a baby who miss the live music experiences London offers so much we are using are passion of enjoying new artists in gig venues and hosting them ourselves!

We are hosting our first gig for parents (dads, mums, grandparents, guardians; all welcome!) and babies on Sunday 13th November 2016 from 1PM – 5PM at Concrete Space in Shoreditch at 56 Shoreditch High Street; London; E1 6JJ, 3 minutes walk from Shoreditch High Street Station (step free access for those buggies).

Tickets are £10 for parents and free for the little ones. All profits from ticket sales will be donated to children’s charity, BARNARDO’S. Our own little one attends the nearby Bow Nursery which is one of two nurseries they run in east London on a not-for-profit basis. Your kind purchase of a ticket to support this event will go towards supporting the fantastic work they do across the UK with children and young people.
