Part of The Party Somewhere Else Festival

This is a show about not baby-sitting your own kids.

DadMan is a warrior. He stands strong at the gates of an ideal Birth-Plan and sings the blues about Being The Only Man At A Parent And Baby Group.

He courageously navigates the precipices of School Runs. DadMan enters the contest for the title of The Breadwinner armed with wooden swords and Lego.

This immersive and highly visual show, for adults, is a challenge: partly quiz, partly story intertwined with live music and original songs, partly total fantasy where DadMan dives in and out of the bathtub, running into Trust, Breasts, Flexi –Hours, Soft Play Areas and Sex (not necessarily in that order, or at the same time!!).

Finally, DadMan realises there is actually another, much bigger mountain to climb.

The female led Notnow Collective specialise in the baby-friendly, baby-welcoming and baby-proof shows for adult audiences. Enjoy a great night out at daytime, without needing to spend on a baby-sitter!

Notnow collective return to The Party Somewhere Else after their successful show – Wonderwoman: The Naked truth which explored motherhood at last year’s festival.

New for 2019 – The Party Somewhere Else ticket fund

In 2019 we’ve extended our Outreach work to ensure as many people as possible are able to access our events. We’ve put some money aside to create a fund for people who would like to attend our events but cannot afford a ticket. If you would like to attend one of our events but cannot afford a ticket, email, or call/text 07375665140 with your ticket request (max 2 tickets per request) and we’ll book and pay for tickets for you and arrange for you to collect them. We’ll keep doing this as long as there is money available.

We’ve put some money in the pot, and you can too – if you’d like to contribute and cover the cost of an extra ticket (or tickets!) for someone else, you can make a one-off donation or sign up to contribute monthly. You’ll enable us to offer more free tickets to people who might not otherwise be able to attend. In other words, with your help, more people can come to the party. And we will love you forever for it, we promise. You can donate money to the ticket fund via a Paypal transfer to or via
