Saturday nights never looked so good! Join North Shore Mums on Saturday 21 September for a Superhero Kids Disco at Wannabees.

It’s the perfect weekend party option for everyone! The kids can let off some steam and have some fun, while parents can relax with a drink and catch up with friends. We consider that a big “win-win”…

The cafe will be open during the night and will have a special menu on offer. If you fancy a Saturday night drink, you can BYO wine or beer (including glasses). Suitable for kids aged up to 12 years.

If you don’t have a Superhero costume, Princesses are other dress ups will of course be welcomed!

For nights out for teens, try Friday nights at the Fitz, St Ives.
