Mum's the Word is an exciting new network for Mamas run by sisters’ Natalie Mcilveen and Laura Swann.
Natalie and Laura (born and bred in Tunbridge Wells) are both Mums on a mission! Natalie is Mum to Ted (4) and Ray (1) and Laura is Mum to Noah (8) and Florrie (5). But they also just happen to have over 25 years of experience (between them) working in the PR and Events world.
Natalie: ‘Apart from the usual soft play and park action, we wanted something different to do at the weekends – something that all the family could enjoy together (including parents). That’s when we came up with the idea for #Wild_Child!'
Laura: ‘In the same way that our parents introduced us to the Beatles and Motown, #Wild_Child is a great way to introduce our children to the classic house anthems of 90s and early OOs – whilst all having fun in a safe, family-friendly venue.’
As well as monthly dance parties, Mum's the Word events will also be hosting a series of Mamas meet ups...
Natalie: ‘After living in London and going to lots of Mama events, I really felt that local Mum's could benefit from a ‘Mum’ community; an opportunity to be inspired, boost your confidence, connect with other Mums and most importantly HAVE FUN. So we decided to create MUM'S THE WORD.'
Laura: ‘Whether you’re a working Mum, stay-at-home Mum, aspiring Mum blogger, a Mum with kids at school, on maternity leave and wondering what to do next or even an expectant Mum, – we’ll have a daytime Mamas meet up that’s just right for you (with or without your kiddies in tow, everyone’s welcome!)
Over to you...
We’d love to hear from local Mamas – who do you want to hear speak, what things do you find challenging, need advice on? What type of events would you love to come along to?
Or perhaps you cleverly combine children with running your own business – could you help inspire other mums to do the same by speaking at a Mum’s the Word meet-up?
Please get in touch – we all know sharing is caring!’
