More than just a baby show!

Parents, children, mums-to-be, you’re all invited to toddle along to the Halifax Courier’s Baby and Beyond 2011 showcase.

Our sister title’s first parent and child showcase event is coming to the Cedar Court Hotel at Ainley Top on Sunday – and it will be positively bouncing.

There’s everything on offer for new parents, mums-to-be or even those thinking of starting a family.

We’ll also be launching our 2011 Child of the Year competition at the event – and want as many people to come along with their children on the day for photographs.

Children will be split into three age categories, 0-2 years, 3-7 years and 8-11 years, with one child from each age range winning a prize.

A professional photographer will take photographs which will feature in a full-colour supplement.

Parents just need to bring along their children on the day to have their photographs taken.

There will be three more dates for parents to enter their children into the competition, on September 23, 25 and October 1, with the locations to be confirmed nearer the time.

Voting will take place between October 12-26, with the winner announced on October 31.

The competition is free to enter.

Sunday’s exhibition will also include a children’s fashion show, practical demonstrations, such as a bra fitting service, supplied by Mothercare, and fun activities for children provided by the Kidz Foundation Charity.

Admission to our show is free with the emphasis on a fun day for all the family. It runs from 10am to 4pm.
