Baby Week Leeds understand that it has been a very difficult time during the pandemic and we wanted to do a little something for some of our new parents who may have found the time challenging, lonely and isolated. We want to bring you together, premiere the short feature and enjoy an inspiring evening with Leeds Dads.

We have arranged a film screening with refreshments in a Slung Low at The Holbeck, for you to bring your families, little ones and / or prams – there will be some space if you need to step out of the screening and change a nappy or take a few minutes out!
