This week we get to find out all about the gals behind Little Tent Events and what they do and love for a living…

Where are you based and what do you do?

We are based just outside of Bath in Peasedown St John but we cover all local and surrounding areas. We offer beautiful bespoke styled bell tent hire and play dens for children for all occasions and events!

These are especially popular for birthday parties, Weddings, Christenings and corporate companies who wish to host family days and have a space for children.

We can provide themed parties for children, mini tepee hire for sleep over parties and mini play corners for any event inside or outside.

We understand sometimes it’s lovely to have children at special occasions but also important the children get to have fun too especially during the speeches! Our mobile play dens and childcare can make children at any event a joy and help parents to relax and be able to enjoy the fizz worry free!

Everything we do is with beautiful styling set up by us to make your occasion memorable and with super fun stuff for the kids. We can also offer mobile creches and childcare with fully vetted, paediatric first aid trained, qualified staff. We have lots of lovely pictures on our website and social pages take a look!

What inspired you to start your business?

With both of us having a passion for childcare, Sam a qualified teacher and Jess a nursery owner we work with lots of families we noticed a gap in the market for parents being able to access safe, quality childcare outside of nurseries for special events. We also fell in love with the idea of hiring out a stunning bell tent styled beautifully by us for children to enjoy at any occasion, we just love creating mobile play spaces for kids anywhere!.

What do you love about running a business in Bath?

What could there not be to love about setting up our business in the beautiful city of Bath? With what we are offering we get to visit stunning venues, work with lovely clientele and of course gorgeous little people along the way.

You’ve got five minutes to grab a sandwich, where do you go? It’s usually coffee and cake for us! We love Mokoko the coffee is great and the banana chocolate cake is amazing!

Where’s your favourite place to book for a business lunch? Between us we have 4 kids usually in tow! We love the Holy Cow in Chilcompton for a business lunch on the go whilst our children play outside.

Which bar do you head to after a tough day? The kitchen! Being full time working mums it can be hard to get to the bar, given the choice a cosy pub by the fire for a glass of wine or a garden with a view in the summer suits us!

Tell us about another Bath business you love and why? The lovely Emma Hall’s Mai and Moo. She makes beautiful prints for all occasions.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business in the city? Take your time to get to know the city, think about it’s history,  culture and how this can work for your business. If you have idea be brave an go for it! No one got anywhere by saying….. ‘I wish I had’
