People are saying some lovely things about Baby Broadway. If you’d like to come along and review a concert, please get in touch.
“Are you tired of ‘Twinkle Twinkle’? Bored of belting out ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ to oblige your music-loving child? Baby Broadway has the salvation you seek. After one of these peppy, jubilant concerts you’ll have a fresh bunch of kid-pleasing songs to add your family repertoire.

Ever felt like you’re missing out on entertainment since starting a family? No more lazy Sundays at the cinema or trips into town for a West End show? You’ll LOVE Baby Broadway – a west end show designed exclusively for families.
We love it because… It’s cast with real West-End performers, but hosted in your local area. They have a short set list of songs from all different musicals, with classic favourites (think Mary Poppins, Grease and Joseph) and more modern films for kids (like Frozen and Shrek).

If glitz, glamour and razzle dazzle are more your thing then look no further than Baby Broadway – a new addition to London’s baby class market. Here you can sit with your little one and immerse yourself in the sounds of the musicals, and while audience participation is encouraged, it’s by no means a necessity. Top West End performers are on hand to deliver an uplifting programme of showtunes carefully put together by Anna Unwin, Baby Broadway’s creator….
…Anna’s background in music also taught her that as well as attracting tired parents looking for a little escapism, her concerts would be hugely beneficial to babies and toddlers. “It’s scientifically proven that the first three years of life change the formation of the brain”, she explains. “Clapping and tapping both develop fine motor skills and the expression in music helps develop emotional intelligence”…
…She wants to create an atmosphere that “excites and delights both parent and child” and it seems on that note she’s already succeeding, with regular standing ovations from audiences…With critical acclaim like this, expect Baby Broadway to be treading the boards for quite some time yet.
