Luminarium, Wheee! and #blogitforbabies Nottingham

I can’t wait to welcome Mamasaurus to Nottingham on her #BlogitforBabies tour, we’ve got a once in a lifetime opportunity for her to join a team of East Midlands bloggers at Lakeside Arts, Nottingham, as we construct one of the 12 giant windows in Architects of Air‘s next Luminarium EXXOPOLIS.

For those who haven’t set foot in a Luminarium before, they are beautiful exploratory inflatable sculptures which tour the world, here’s my sneak preview of EXXOPOLIS.

Here’s me, Becky, from Baby Budgeting and Amanda from The Ana Mum Diary in front of an example of the kind of window we’ll be making happen.

As we prepare something totally huge for the Wheee! Children’s festival it seems fitting that we raise some funds for children in poverty. We’re giving our time to stick and glue this huge window that thousands of children and their grown ups around the world will enjoy, and we’re hoping in return our lovely readers might text donate a pound to Mammasaurus’s Just Giving page and/or retweet and share our exploits on the day.

It’s going to be a great opportunity to network with some fabulous East Midlands based bloggers (Alexander Residence, Ana Mum Diary, Baby Budgeting, Hello its Gemma, Rosie Scribble, A Mummy Too, Love Chic Living, Mini Break Mummy, My Gorgeous Boys to name a few) You can also find out more about Lakeside Arts, Whee! and Architects of Air and it sounds like the BBC are popping in. There’s always room for more bloggers on the team, contact Penny.

Our work will have it’s world premiere in Nottingham at the Wheee! Children’s theatre and dance festival from 2-9th June. Wheee! culminates in a family weekend on the 9 and 10 June, with free craft, art, spontaneous performance and fun in the parkland around the arts centre, plus even more shows to choose from. Book shows now, the weekend attracted over 4,000 visitors last year.
