We are also delighted to announce that our official charity, Theodora’s Children’s Charity is the Baby Show’s charity partner too.  The charity train ‘Giggle Doctors’ who are professional performers such as magicians, singers, actors and musicians, to bring magical moments and laughter to brave children in difficult times.  Visitors can donate to the charity when purchasing tickets or whilst they are at the Show.  Babyblooms have been proud supporters of Theodora’s Children’s Charity for many years and continue to fund giggle doctor visits through donations raised from the sale of Theodora Gifts, examples of which will be displayed on the Charity’s stand near the main stage.
