NORWICH: The Unmumsy Mum & Man vs Baby in association with Naked Wines

Buy tickets for NORWICH: The Unmumsy Mum and Man Vs Baby in association with Naked Wines

After selling out in both Twickenham and Belfast in a few days, I'm very, very excited and honoured to welcome to Norwich; Sarah Turner and Matt Coyne, The Unmumsy Mum and Man vs Baby! That's right, TWO special guests, on one summers night, in association with the most excellent Naked Wines who are bringing their cash bar of stupendous wines and gin. I've made sure we have many seats! Please share with your friends, neighbours, aunts, uncles! 

The Unmumsy Mum - a pioneer of honest parenting chat, the hilarious and eloquent author and social media sensation Sarah Turner now has three sons and has published two Sunday Times best selling books The Unmumsy Mum and The Unmumsy Mum Diary.

Man vs Baby - the founder of 'that' Facebook post that went viral, (“hero for dads everywhere” (Daily Mirror), "Very, very funny" (Phillip Schofield) "Imperfect, honest and open" Scarlett Curtiss, Sunday Times Mag) Matt Coyne has a toddler, a ginormous social media following and is a Sunday Times bestselling author.

How would you feel about hearing them chat IN THE SAME ROOM, NORWICH!!! No, scrap that, how about a big, beautiful barn (The Octagon Barn) on a warm summers evening before the summer holidays kick off!?!

Join us as we chat about everything - the early days, the toddler days, the school days, how they manage parenting with being authors and all the hilarious highs and lows in between! There will be Q&A and Sarah and Matt will sign their books after.

Don't go home straight away! Stay around for a drink. The bar will be open until 23:00 - it's THURSDAY night, it will be the summer holidays soon. Stay and relax a bit!

DRINK

  • I'm over the moon that Naked Wines are bringing a cash bar of their artisan wines and gin. They are a super ethical Norwich based company, who crowd fund for very talented wine makers and provide top notch wine at insider prices. The most exciting wines in the world are made by small, low-production winemakers who don't have the financial muscle to get on to the UK supermarket shelves, and by maverick, artisan winemakers who want to make wines their way, not the way the big retailers want them made. 

FOOD

  • Bite The Bullitt are bringing their yummy hot food for you to buy so you don't have to eat beans on toast with the kids first, hurrah! (in their words: Primal & traditional coal fired food for festivals & events, engaging the audience on a sensory level with sound, vision, smell & punchy flavours 😏👀)

BOOKS

  • The new paperback versions of The Unmumsy Mum Diary by Sarah Turner and Dummy by Matt Coyne are available to pre-order when you buy your tickets :-)

Early bird tickets are £14.50 including a seat in the front couple of rows (the seats will be reserved for you), £16.50 thereafter plus £1.50 transaction fee.

CHARITY SUPPORT

We Got This (Sometimes!) Norwich donates 10% of profits to Get Me Out of These Four Walls, a Norfolk charity set up by a Norwich mum for mums with PND. There is an option to donate when you buy your tickets. They would be very grateful.

A donation will be made to the very important charity Kicks Count on behalf of Matt Coyne.

Unreserved Theatre Seating. Language *may* be fruity - adults only. Please note tickets for this event are non refundable but it is possible to transfer tickets to a friend - please let emma@wegotthisco.com know!

NORWICH: An audience with Simon Hooper, Father of Daughters

Simon Hooper aka Father of Daughters, the social media phenomenon of *only* 828k followers (!) is coming to Norwich. 

<Update 9th May! Hats off 🎩 to Norfolk based brand Minivino* who are coming on board and giving EVERY guest a resealable single serve of their Italian vino at An Audience with Simon Hooper @father_of_daughters on 22nd May👏🏽, read more here>

Simon is father to four girls: Anya (10), Marnie (7) and two-year-old identical twins Ottilie and Delilah. He is married to Clemmie Hooper (aka @mother_of_daughters), who is, as you know, a midwife, a social media star and author of How to Grow a Baby and Push it Out.

Most of us love a bit of honest parenting to make us feel better and Simon is the insta-king of that, bringing the dad's voice to the squares. He has now written his first book "Forever Outnumbered". I started following Clemmie last year when Will was tiny, and saw her husband had an account. How novel, I thought, a husband having his own account! Now I feel a bit invested in their family life (do you think he will still come if he reads this😝?!)

Lots of people like his posts, and think his account is funny, other people google "father of daughters job" as they aren't sure how on earth one man can have a big family, a job and post about it. A recent study found nearly half of millennial dads (up to age 35) would be willing to take a pay cut to spend more time with their children. Simon's funny and honest take on life shows how he does this parenting malarky in his family. 

Come and meet Simon at Open Norwich Tues 22nd May, and hear him chat modern fatherhood, equality, paternity leave, the juggle, why he starting documenting family life, how he’s creating a “side hustle” on instagram whilst having a full time job and what his new book is all about. You can buy his book from Waterstones (launches 3rd May) and he will sign it for you and pose for pics :)

Please arrive at 7pm, to start at 7:30pm. 

Early bird tickets are £13.50 including a seat in the front couple of rows (the seats will be reserved for you), General Admission are £15.00 plus a small booking fee for each transaction. Unreserved seating. 

👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼10% of profits from this event will be donated to Get Me Out These Four Walls, a Norfolk charity set up by a Norwich mum for mums with PND and maternal mental health issues.

Tickets are not refundable but can be transferred to another person.

TW: A Night in with Hurrah for Gin

TW Event Page-2.png

- SOLD OUT - SOLD OUT - SOLD OUT

Katie Kirby, author / blogger / greeting card maker / social media celeb and general all round mums' heroine is coming to Twickenham!

After her children were born, she realised they are NOT like the ones you see in Boden catalogues, and seeing as it was quite tricky to find work that flexed enough, Katie decided to start a blog about the gross injustice of it all. 400k facebook followers later, she has written her second book "The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams (Aged 2 ¼)".

Katie’s new book depicts the highs and lows of family life through the eyes of Archie Adams – one highly opinionated, creatively-stifled modern-day toddler. The world is out to get him, people tell him what to do, but he gets some comfort from his best friend Amelia and occasionally sinking his teeth into other people’s limbs. Then, his parents tell him that they are having another baby.

We'll be speaking to Katie about how she turned turned her blog and social media into a best-selling book, the inspiration for her latest book, how she juggles her new life as an author with being Mum to two boys

This exclusive event will be held in the Winchester Room at the Turks Head Pub, Twickenham.

Arrive to start at 7pm (hopefully that means you get out of bedtime!) and Katie's books will be available for purchase and signing! 

Tickets start at £13.50 plus a small transaction fee.
