Since launching Lala & Bea, we have been involved in so many great pop-ups, fairs and big retail events that we felt it was about time we curated our own! We are passionate about championing other independent brands and supporting women in motherhood, so decided to bring it all together under one roof…
We will be launching the first ever Brixton Bazaar, 5-7 October, in The Department Store on Ferndale Road (free entry Saturday and Sunday - evening events and workshops are ticketed). We are taking over the downstairs space for the 3-day event - full of independent brands to shop, kids workshops, panel chats and wellbeing treats - here’s a breakdown of what’s in store!
Friday night kicks off with a refreshing take on working motherhood - we are so often told we ‘can’t do it all’ and those feelings of overwhelm and the ‘juggle struggle’ are all too common for us working mums… but our ‘Positive Working Motherhood’ panel chat is about stopping and appreciating the best bits. Bringing together 3 successful, thriving business women (Yvonne from Kemi Telford, Gemma from Muthahood and Hayley from Southwood Stores), we will talk about how motherhood has changed their approach to their careers, inspired them to start their own brands and they will give their tips and advice on how to juggle work and a busy family without burning out. It will supportive, uplifting and empowering - we can’t wait!
Working motherhood: the postive impact tickets are available here. From 7pm, 5 October. Including free drink, bar and food available all evening.
Saturday is our ‘family day’ - we wanted to create something that you didn’t have to ‘drag’ the kids along to - it’s just as much for them! There’s going to be a slime workshop, a ‘design your own t-shirt’ crafting area with our best-selling kids tees, hand-blocking printing workshop with ethical lifestyle brand Dilli Grey, a book reading corner with Doodle & Scribbles Books, facepainting.. the works! The idea is that your little ones will be happily occupied so you will have plenty of time to browse the incredible edit of 14 brands in our marketplace - from womenswear to childrenswear, homewares, jewellery and accessories - we’ve brought together some really exciting brands (stay tuned on our Insta feed for sneak peek of the brands involved!). Perfect for getting organised early for Christmas gifting!
Following their sell-out UK tour, the hilarious and searingly honest Ellie and Helen, aka the Scummy Mummies, are going to hold a brand new comedy night on Saturday - with all new content, songs, sketches…and catsuits! We love their frank take on the realities of motherhood - saying all the things we are all thinking but too scared to say! We guarantee it will leave you feeling uplifted and reassured that it’s not just you! The perfect girl’s night out giggle.
Scummy Mummies pop-up comedy night, tickets are available here. From 7pm, 6 October. Including free drink, admission to the pop up (with exclusive deals on the night) and entry to an amazing raffle!
Sunday is all about you - with our ‘motherhood wellbeing’ day. The space will take on a calmer, nurturing vibe - designed to let you spend a few precious hours focussing on what you need - from a styling session for busy mums to a hypnotherapy workshop to massages… or just mooch in our marketplace amongst our gorgeous independent brands or grab a coffee in the cafe. Kids are more than welcome on Sunday too, we’ll have a kids’ author doing a reading and lots of yummy food so feel free to make it a family day.
Of course we will be there with all our gorgeous autumn stock - including our Italian Merino bobble hats, snuggly blankets and super soft cotton sweats. See you there!
