You have to go through the gate from the street, through the courtyard and all around to the back side of the building.

Can I bring my baby?
We love babies!
Babies in arms, carry cots, or slings are welcome, meaning you can occupy a seat and have your baby in your lap for the day.

If you are bringing your baby, please note:

* Because there’s no elevator you are not able to bring a stroller or pram into the venue. It’s possible though to park your pram/stroller in the backyard of the building.

* Please be aware that you will need to take your baby out of the room if he/she is noisy or distracting (sorry, but this may even apply to happy noises), and we may ask you to do this if any participants, including Ibu Robin and Debra, are experiencing distraction. This may mean that you miss substantial parts of the day that we cannot catch you up with.

If you book a ticket and bring your baby, we presume that you are aware of all of these guidelines.
