ParentFolk Weekender, the ultimate family social, returns to The White Horse at Chester Racecourse

Hip North West parenting publication ParentFolk return to The White Horse at Chester Racecourse, with their family social event, The ParentFolk Weekender, which takes place on Saturday 21st July.

The event, sponsored by Ginger Monkey Play, will be back with all of the ParentFolk Weekender elements that have become synonymous with this cool family event, but this time with some new twists too, as ParentFolk will be marking the weekender’s 1st Birthday with ‘The Ultimate Party Edition’.

Collaborating with family friendly venue The White Horse, Chester Racecourse, the ParentFolk Weekender will be taking over the site on Saturday 21st July and bringing the ultimate family social to life once again. With all of the usual laid back vibes; great food  and drink, gin bar, BBQ, ice cream, DJ’s, dance place space and a whole heap of arts activities for all the family, this is the perfect way to welcome in the summer holidays.

This alternative family social has built its reputation by delivering original and creative events for families, with a relaxed and laid back vibe, it’s a place where families can have fun hanging out together. A low cost ticket guarantees an afternoon of inclusive activities, workshops, arts, music and amusement, so no littlefolk asking for a constant stream of spends either!

The Ultimate Party Edition brings some new collaborations. CBBC will be popping up bringing the CBBC HQ desk for the perfect photo opp, littlefolk can make flowers and plant them in Grandma Clangers Garden, and keep your eyes peeled for some special guests too!

There’ll be a glitter bar, for glitter makeovers (and glitter dad beards), Screen-printing workshops and cupcake decorating with Square Pegs, and paper crafting with Paper Town Crafts. Sponsors Ginger Monkey Play will have a unique pop up space bringing together great retail and toddler sessions ahead of their new opening in Chester this summer. Add to this a cool shopping experience with handpicked independent insta-brands and a great soundtrack and you’ve got yourself the perfect afternoon for all the family to enjoy.
