Big Scream Gate Cinema: Located just up the steps for the Notting Hill Gate Underground, the historic and charming Gate Cinema puts on a fabulous baby cinema each week.  Come on your own or with friends, there’s low lighting, changing tables and coffee … great way to brighten up the doldrums of sleepless nights and feedings.  For infants under 1 year old, tickets £8, Tuesday 11th September, 10:30am.  This week’s screening: Tabu

Bach to Baby: fabulous concerts for carers with babes and toddlers.  Back to Baby is perfect for babes in arms as these are concert-hall luminaries performing for adults; these are not concerts pitched for children in particular, although they do enjoy them thoroughly.  Come join the fabulous pianist Miaomiao Yo Thursday, 20th September, 10:30am, Notting Hill Community Church.  £10 per adult.
