As part of Harrogate International Literature Festival the brilliant Matt Coyne – aka Man vs. Baby is coming to town next week. So get yourself a babysitter, book your tickets and read on for more information on the man himself. We’ll also give you a few of our favourite bars and restaurants nearby – you may as well make the most of those babysitters!
Matt is a blogger and author best known as the man behind the astonishingly popular Man vs. Baby blog. Having started it in 2015 when a refreshingly honest Facebook post went viral, Matt has covered everything: From monsters under the sofa (he’s called Brian, actually), to nappy disasters and ‘Profanity Bingo’. He’s written the Times bestselling book Dummy, regularly contributes to GQ and The Guardian, among other publications, and keeps his 230,000+ followers updated on a regular basis.
I’m a big fan of the honest and funny parenting blogs. Let’s be honest, if we can’t laugh about it we’d probably have gone mad a long time ago! Matt offers a brutally and refreshingly honest, no-holds-barred account of fatherhood – swears included. If you haven’t already, you can check out his blog
Matt Coyne: Man vs Baby will be at The Crown Hotel, Harrogate on Friday 18 Oct at 8pm. Tickets are £15 each and the event lasts for about an hour. This will be the perfect night out for anyone who has experienced the mad world of parenting! Our fellow North Leeds Mumbler recently held an event with Man vs Baby and it went down a storm with all the local parents.
If you’ve got the babysitter sorted, then you might as well make a night of it! Perhaps grab yourself a bite to eat and a few drinks before or afterwards. Hoxton North is a great place to grab a drink – especially if you like good cocktails – I’m a big fan of their Dark and Stormy. They’ve also started serving food on Friday and Saturday nights, perfect for a date night! Me and the hubby are also a big fan of Major Tom’s Social – the beer list is extensive, and the pizzas are ridiculously good!
