West Kent Sling Meet was started by four local Mamas in the Spring of 2013 and has been hosted at Trinity Theatre’s fantastic Foyer Cafe at least once a month ever since!

To read all about how we started please read THIS blog post!

It’s a friendly, warm and inviting social meet up where you can meet other parents/carers, watch carrier demonstrations; receive safety information and fitting tips as well as see my comprehensive stash of carriers.

Along with demonstrations and advice I also allow visitors to hire and buy carriers from my stock wherever possible.

My name’s Kitty and I’m here to try and look as ethereal as is possible *wink* whilst attempting to help you in your child carrying journey, whatever point you are at!

How Does A Sling Meet Work? What Can I expect?


It starts at 10am and I ask anyone who needs advice/support from me to try to get there as close to that time as is possible to allow me to assess everyone’s different needs/ages of children and to work out what demonstrations are most beneficial to everyone.

I have a sign in sheet and some months if I have a broader range of needs to cater to I will simply work my way down the list in a first come first served fashion giving everyone at least five minutes of my time to help you to narrow down your choices and to help you to find the most appropriate carrier for you and your baby’s needs.

Some weeks feel nice and relaxed and some weeks are CRAY CRAY but EVERY meet is always filled with laughter, love and lots of support so even if you’re nervous do come along, I promise you’ll be very welcomed!

Oh and it’s FREEEEEEE did I mention that! But please do support Trinity by buying their scrumptious food and drink because they’ve supported me for so long and never charge me a hire fee.

If you want to hire and collect from the sling meet and you already know what you would like then feel free to go ahead via the hire shop on this site and select ‘Collect From Sling Meet’ as the postage option.
