FAQs and other things you might need to know

Is there childcare offered? We hope your children enjoy the toys and activities provided for them but please remember that they remain your responsibility throughout the Freelance Mum meeting.

Can I buy a ticket on the door? We have a limited number of places at each meeting, so booking in advance is a good idea. There may be tickets available on the door, priced at £10 each, but we can’t guarantee you a space unless you book.

I can’t make the event after? If you make a booking but aren’t able to come after all, we can offer you a refund provided you give us 48 hours notice before the event.

I don’t have my children that day – can I still come? You are more than welcome to come without your kids if a meeting falls on a day when you already have childcare in place.

I don’t have children, can I still come? If you’re not a parent, we’d ask that you only come to the special open events that are arrange on occasion throughout the year. Regular meetings are for mums and dads only!

My children are now at school, can I still come? If your children and older and now at school, you are more than welcome to come – if you still feel you identify with this bonkers phase, please come, we welcome extra hands!

Parking:  For both venues there’s parking in the near by Asda car park, where you can park for FREE for 2.5 hours. At St Paul’s Church, there is also meter parking, for 3 hours. And at Windmill Hill City Farm, there is the NCP Carpark, Dalby Ave.

How long is the walk/what pace is it? The walk is a gentle 30 minutes, we walk at the pace of the slowest walker. There is always a clearly marked leader & backstop, so no one can get lost. Toddler pace/tantrums/scooters/buggys are all made easy.

I’m a ‘freelance dad’ – can I come? Yes – while these events are aimed at mums in business, if this is something as a Dad you identify with too, we’d love to have you!

I can’t make all of the meeting – is it still ok to attend? Of course, just let us know when you can join, we’d love to have you.

My business is just a germ of an idea, not even a start up – can I come? Yes – this is a place where ideas and people flourish. We encourage people at all stages of their business to come – it’s a great place to exchange ideas and grow.
