Discover & Be comes to Brighton & Hove!

We’re delighted to be launching new multisensory messy play sessions in Brighton and Hove on July 15th 2016. Our venue is Portslade Leisure Centre, and we’ve two sessions:

  • MiniBees: for babies aged 6 - 18 months

  • DeeBees for children aged 18 months - 4 years old

The launch events on Friday 15th July are free, although with limited spaces available you will need to sign up in advance. Simply send an email to or visit the dedicated Facebook page for Portslade, and drop us a message there.

Our theme for the first week is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We recently featured this theme at our sessions in Cuckfield, Newick and Scaynes Hill where it was universally popular! Parents and carers remember - and love - the story from their childhoods and it’s a great opportunity to introduce it to children who haven’t seen it before.


As well as reading this iconic book, we will also have a host of activities for you and your children to enjoy including:

  • Test your fine motor skills by threading a caterpillar necklace

  • Encase yourself like a caterpillar in our cosy cocoon

  • Get stamping with some paint and our selection of circular stamps

  • Make your own caterpillar to take home

  • Explore different fruits as we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar

  • Join us to sing our caterpillar-themed songs!

So be sure to join us for lots of inspiring and fun activities, and to meet your session facilitators, Siobhan and Kate. Between them they’ll make sure you get the most out of your time with us and will, of course, point you in the direction of a coffee and a snack!

If you can’t make the launch events, we’ll be back the following week so join us then. We offer an initial free taster session; just let us know you’ll be coming along so we can expect you!

Portslade Leisure Centre is located on Chalky Road (see this map for the location) which is served by the 1 and 1A bus service. Alternatively, if you’re coming by car, there is plenty of free parking.

We look forward to seeing you there!
