You will also find a list of creative, fun, and healthy activities that you can engage in with your kids. Families who are active together, get healthy together. Do ensure to maintain safe distancing and use of protective masks in any physical event you might want to partake of. Enjoy!
Family Fitness & Fun
Motherhood is hard. Being a mum who isn’t healthy is even harder! Who can relate? Even with all the benefits of exercising we know, as mums we still tend to put it off with many excuses – no time, too tired, we don’t know how, etc. But the truth is, excuses are just excuses. If it’s truly important, we have to sacrifice to make it work. And having a healthy lifestyle should be a top priority for the whole fam!
So, this Saturday, March 27th, 2021, from 9am to 10:30am, join Yetty Williams, founder of @lagosmums, and Maje Ayida, founder of @hiitsquadng to flex those muscles and torch some calories. Let’s talk about how to raise healthy families! It’s going to be a time out for family fun and bonding. Register HERE

This is another event to enjoy, especially for the women of the house. After a year of virtual events, we all want some physical connection. For this reason, Women’s Group is hosting a small book swap at Art Cafe. Come have coffee and cake together, talk, and exchange our beloved books. Please remember to wear your mask. Art Cafe has a beautiful outdoor space, it isn’t very busy so we can spread out and feel safe. The cafe is also kitted out with hand sanitizers and staff in masks at all times.

This is a wonderful musical event to enjoy with the family this weekend. It is the live presentation of musical artiste Adedeji Adetayo’s album, titled ‘Yoruba Odyssey’. It was recorded at the legendary Afrodisia/Decca Studio in Lagos, which housed the likes of Fela Kuti and King Sunny Adé. It’s a progressive Jazz-Funk album, influenced by old-school Afrobeat and Traditional Yoruba. The lyrics sung in the groovy languages of Yoruba and Pidgin English are reigniting with the traditional identity of Yoruba Culture. Authentic and personal ideas with tremendous harmonies and arrangements in fast and furry compositions by a masterful guitarist and singer and an energetic and enlightened band.
