EVENT: MFF x Brentford FC, Extra Time, Saturday 18th June
MusicFootballFatherhood and the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust are partnering on a very special event to host a football themed fatherhood conversation for dads.
They say men don’t talk but we think differently. When we get men together in a non-judgemental environment and surrounded by like-minded people, we often don’t have enough time to finish our conversations. At MFF we host conversations with dads about all aspects of parenting – the highs and the lows. Lots of us have amazing experiences as fathers and these need to be celebrated but we also have difficult moments and we need to be able to share those times too. There is a space for clinical health support, of course, and there is a place for consuming useful content, like our resources and podcasts but a major source of support is peer support – meeting other dads who can relate and resonate with what you are saying.
Our ‘Extra Time: a football themed parenting conversation for dads’ events are all about peer support. We held the first event with QPR and we are following that up with our next Extra Time event in partnership with Brentford FC on Saturday 18th June from 1015-1330.
What makes the Extra Time event so special is that it takes place in a venue that’s poignant to a lot of dads – a football stadium! The first part of the event will be hosted at the Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub after which we will walk across to the Community Stadium to continue the conversations and have a special stadium tour.
We use a mixture of panel discussions, pair conversations and whole group work to create a really inclusive environment where everyone gets to input. The event will even include a Brentford themed quiz to win a very special signed DAD book!
The event is free but places are limited. To register, please register here.
