Tickled Pink will perform for quite an unusual audience next weekend… toddlers, wobblers, babies and mums with big bumps! Yes, you heard right, Tickled Pink will be part of the entertainment for the Babytalk Festival; a fun new pregnancy and baby festival taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2014 in O’Reilly Hall, UCD, Dublin. This new festival hopes to empower families and parents-to-be with information in a fun, relaxed environment.
Rachel Lane and Marie Dunne, directors of Babytalk, want to promote clear and unbiased information for parents in Ireland. Rachel and Marie believe that “advising parents and families is a huge responsibility so it is important to us that our exhibitors and sponsors are ethical and honest in their approach to business”.
