Welcome to Rock The Tots! Gigs for little people... and their grown-ups!
We run fun and fabulous music events for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in Bath, Bristol and beyond.
We are Steph and Craig, seasoned performers with a wealth of experience and a love of live music. We're also Mummy and Daddy to two small people! We set up Rock The Tots to pass on our passion for music to the next generation of gig-goers. But just as importantly, we wanted to create a baby and toddler group that would entertain the grown-ups too. You see, having BEEN THERE with our two cherubs, we know that there are only so many times you can hear 'Wheels on the Bus'. We know that 'Wind the Bobbin Up' is a CLASSIC, but after the 200th time it can start to wind one around the bend...
Our sessions are designed to inspire, entertain and burn off some excess energy! With the added bonus that you, the adult, get to listen to something a bit more contemporary, upbeat and on your level.
What happens at a Rock The Tots gig?
At Rock The Tots, you and your child can enjoy a variety of upbeat covers performed by a professional musician. Expect to hear anything from The Beatles to Beyoncé, from Queen to the Kings of Leon, from Lionel Richie to Lady Gaga.
The aim? To have FUN!
Each gig hosts a different theme, with percussion, puppets and props for you and your children to interact with. Sit, stand, sway, dance or head-bang, you are welcome to enjoy the music however you wish.
Each 40 minute gig will finish with a lovely storytelling session, connected to the theme, to calm you and your little rock stars before you boogie on outta there...
then, the Babies have left the Building! Until the next Rock The Tots gig anyway!
£4 per head, babies under
3 months are free of charge.
If you are bringing a second sibling (or more) we offer a small discount and you can purchase a Siblings Ticket for £7.
We also offer a loyalty card! Get 5 stamps and your 6th gig is free!
Just ask Steph for a card on the door.
Filled your loyalty card and ready for that sweet, sweet freebie? Email steph at and she'll sort you out!
Rock The Tots runs drop-in sessions, so you can pay by cash or card on the day.
However, when we have reached room capacity we do have to shut the doors! So you can book tickets in advance by clicking on our Bookings page.
In April, at our gig in St Werburghs, we were lucky enough to be visited and photographed by the marvellous Von of Vonalina Cake Photography. Maybe you were there! See if you can spot yourself!
These super photos give you a little taster of the fun and frolics to be had at a Rock The Tots gig!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I turn up and pay on the day?
We do have the ability to take cash or card payment on the day. Prices are £4 per ticket (babies under 3 months free), with a discount for families with siblings.
However, once the room is at full capacity we cannot let any more peeps in, and in some venues, online advance tickets go fast! So make sure to turn up with plenty of time if poss! Or even better, book in advance.
How loud will the gig be?
Although these are live music gigs and as such they are fun and upbeat, we have carefully judged each room and the acoustics so that the music will be at a safe and comfortable volume for little ears. You will not need ear defenders. If your little one is a little disconcerted at all by the live instruments, you may of course duck out or move further away as you wish.
How much does the gig cost?
The cost is £4 per head.
If you have more than one child, we offer a Siblings Ticket for £7.
We also have loyalty cards - come to 5 Rock the Tots gigs and get your 6th for free!
Are there baby-changing facilities?
Yes. As parents ourselves, we know this is a must! Most of our venues have baby changing facilities on site. For the few that don't, we will be providing an area ourselves.
Can I feed my child at a Rock the Tots gig?
We are totally happy for you to breast or bottle feed your baby or toddler during a Rock the Tots session. However, to keep the space clean for others, we would ask you that you wait until after the gig to feed your little ones any snacks, or feel free to duck out if they are ravenous!
Who will host the Rock the Tots sessions?
We are Steph and Craig Mitchell, performers with years of experience in playing music, the theatre, and working with young audiences. We are also parents to two little girls.
