What’s On

Storytime Sunday

Storytime Sunday is a popular community event organised by the Bright Group, which allows children to interact, create and spend time with their favourite authors and illustrators, sharing the joy of storytelling. Meet the artists, listen to a storytime reading of their books and enjoy a craft session based on their stories! For Book Launches and Storytime events find out what’s on here.

Read! Make! Play!

Read! Make! Play! combines drama games, creative storytelling and crafts, perfect for any budding artists, young actors and story book fans! Each workshop begins with a new tale, brought to life as a group through costume, props and play! We then take all our ideas over to the craft zone and get busy creating beautiful stories of our own through collage, colouring, sticking, creative writing, drawing and more.

Art Splash

Art Splash! The London Art Nanny and The Bright Emporium have joined forces to offer this fabulous workshop that will have your little ones exploring the world of creativity- while crafting and painting their own colourful artworks to bring home weekly!

Messy Mornings

Our fabulous Messy teacher, Lily Rossiter, is here to bring you a brilliant morning of creative crafting and messy magic, all for absolutely free – all you need to bring is your imagination, and an apron! Each week will cover a different theme, and the little ones will work on individual projects as well as working together on one big masterpiece which we will proudly display in our gallery afterwards – all of our attendees are artists in the making!

Mini Yoga

Classes run by Naomi are always based around a story which unfolds (much to the children’s delight!) and is acted out using Hatha yoga postures. Many of the activities support the Early Years foundation framework.

Tutus for Tots

Lucy’s ballet classes for pre-schoolers provide a magical arrangement of activities. The aim is to capture and nurture young children’s imagination and creativity, in a fun and safe environment. An array of different narrative settings, aided by the use of props, is used to enable the children to learn through play and explore through dance. The focus for these classes is to build upon confidence and social interaction, and provide young children with a fun, exciting way to begin their dance experience.

NCT Antenatal Classes

Having a baby is a special time. So make sure you benefit from the experience, support and social networks that only come with an NCT Signature antenatal course. From October 2016, The Bright Emporium will be hosting these excellent NCT antenatal courses!
