Events Diary

Nappuccino’s are local real nappy information events run by real nappy advisors and are perfect opportunities to learn more about real nappies over a coffee. We recommend attending a nappuccino (also known as real nappy demo or nappy natter) as a way of seeing all the different types and styles before you buy. You will be able to ask all the questions that you may have about using, washing and drying and receive impartial advice about all real nappies from a real nappy advisor.

You can find out what’s happening near you using our events diary below.  Some events request that you book before attending.   All relevant contact information can be found on event listings.
