Bedford Hall is an ideal venue to hold younger children’s birthday parties. No discos are permitted due to consideration of our neighbours and local residents. We offer a special party rate at weekends for 4-hours to allow time to set-up, enjoy the party and clear-up, at £140.00 (plus membership fee).

A relaxed and friendly art club where children aged 7 – 12 can enjoy arts and crafts, try out different media, and explore their creativity. 

Parent/carers are invited to join in, to share the experience and take a break from everyday pressures. 

Sessions will have an element of surprise (often drawing inspiration from nature and the seasons), and you will have a new artwork, design or gift to take away every week.

“Artists Together” is a collaboration between Jill (Creative Kids Art Club) and Olivia (In Touch: Family Arts and Crafts)

Sing and Sign is the original baby signing class going into its 20th year.  I have been running in Buckhurst Hill for over 6 years and offer the full Sing and Sign programme from Birth to Two years.  Our sessions are all about promoting positive communication through lots of face to face interaction, music, singing, props and, of course, signing. Signing with babies and toddlers is known to enhance early speech and understanding as well as promote neurological development and emotional wellbeing. Within our small classes you will learn over 100 signs and lots of songs to use in your daily interactions, as well as make friends with like-minded parents. Course are ten weeks long and spaces must be pre-booked.
