A mindful and impactful kid-friendly brunch event

This event will include keynote speakers who will speak to the importance of childcare legislation and provisions in business and the workplace. Brunch for attendees is provided in a casual setting. As this event is kids-go-free, the children of the attendees are invited to attend a Brighton-local art workshop by the House of Culture. The brunch and workshop are included in the ticket.

28th July 11 am -1 pm The Grounds, Hove Town Hal


Brunch, keynote speakers and art workshop are all included in the ticket price. Kids go free!



This event aims to be an idea of how childcare can be incorporated into the workplace so that parents do not have to source childcare themselves, something that is often costly and limited.

If businesses better provide for parents, this in turn will support sustainability and employee retention. Providing these benefits is a win-win scenario.
