‘Pop up and Play’ is a Leeds based events company focused on creating cool spaces for families to hang out. Formed in 2014 through a mutual love of design and belief that just because something is created for children the aesthetic of a space should not be compromised. Since then they have developed into a company that not only specialises in families at events, but also theming and visual merchandising.
As part of Leeds indie food festival they will be opening a custom built kinder café which will be accessible via a free water taxi from Leeds Station.
We caught up with Hannah from Pop up and Play to tell us more about it…
What is it?
Leeds first Pop Up restaurant designed with families in mind, inspired
by the kinder cafe culture in Germany and across Scandinavia.
Ultimately, its a space for parents who don’t want to compromise on
being in an interesting, design led space but also want to provide
their children with something creative to be part of. All of our
events are about creating cool spaces for families to enjoy together.
They’re cool, creative, imagination led and utterly instagrammable!
Where is it?
Set on the first floor of the old Google garage at Leeds Dock the
space is light airy and will be filled with interesting and exciting
activities for children. A purpose built imaginative play space,
reading nook and unique toys.
What can we expect?
Food is created by Tom Cockerill, the Rare Breed Chef. There will be
two brunch sittings per day and one supper. Brunch is a modern British
offering for adults, whilst kids will enjoy a visually stimulating
bento box brunch, this is rounded off by a family waffle for the
table. Supper is Italian inspired; meatballs three ways, buttered
linguini and finished with a duck egg creme brulee. Supper is
certainly a more relaxed affair with a movie on for the children and
red wine a plenty for the adults. Bear Nibbles will be there to run a
super cool veggie monster competition and Okido Magazine are supplying
us with the ultimate in cool brunch reading magazines for the kids.
