Bundlee s a sustainable rental service for modern parents, where you can rent your baby's wardrobe and swap as they grow.

This venue comes from Maggie Bolger, widely regarded as one of the most progressive thought leaders in early childhood education, family-focused interior design and members’ clubs.
B_together is a members club for families, and at feast a neighbourhood family friendly restaurant.
Both venues, based on St John’s Wood High St in North West London had sustainability at the heart of their build. From designs to materials to fittings, they explored how eco-friendly a building site could really be. It wasn't all blue skies, and yes they had to compromise, but they never stopped innovating.
We are lucky to run classes at this beautiful venue and have a new term starting Monday!
