Following the popularity of our First Workshops, parents asked us to set up Second Workshops so they wouldn't have to leave once their baby got older! So we started Second, which are running in Hastings and Brighton.
Activities are designed to engage children from 19 months - 3 years, but younger siblings are welcome to come along for the ride too!

FIRST & SECOND SCHEDULE
When Tara's daughter Grace was postnatally diagnosed with Down's syndrome, the world was slowly starting to emerge from strict COVID restrictions. All new parents had a challenging time adjusting to life outside their four walls with a newborn, but it was an especially challenging time for Tara.
Read on to learn how First Workshops helped Tara feel supported and connected...
"I absolutely love it! I feel like I’m stimulating my creative brain and having fun with my baby at the same time. Also, no matter how I come in I always leave more relaxed."
"So lovely to go to a baby group which is truly unique and entertaining….the artists have all been amazing and I leave feeling uplifted and positive."
Our First and Second Workshops are run by experienced facilitators who are also local artists and creatives! We also often have visiting guest artists who bring new ideas and activities to the groups.
We are often asked what makes First and Second different and why we run parent and child workshops as a theatre company.
