It’s been a busy half term week in the world of ARTventurers and we’ve been loving the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory inspired sessions that took place in Sunderland, South Tyneside and Newark!

A Big Day out at the North East Baby and Toddler Show!

This weekend some of our north east team had a great day at the North East Baby and Toddler show which was held at Gateshead Stadium. It’s always a brilliant day out and the team had lots of fun chatting to parents, grandparents and gorgeous little people, getting very broody over so many beautiful newborns and spreading the word about our colourful, creative classes, events and parties! It’s also always a great chance to catch up with some of the other brilliant businesses in the region – so much talent and expertise out there!

Here’s a photo of Fiona (Sunderland), Emily (Newcastle/Gateshead) and Laura (South Tyneside) beside our colourful stand – sorry it’s a bit blurry!
