Loopla – Find fun. Fast

Do you struggle to find children’s classes, activities or events that are local to you? Loopla is a new, free online platform for parents to explore and connect with the best activities and experiences for children in their local area. Run by mums and designed for mums and dads, our aim is to enable every parent to discover the best local activities for their children.

Our beginnings

The idea for Loopla began in 2019 after experiencing first-hand how difficult it is to find great classes and activities for children. We were fed up spending hours searching online for fun stuff to do in our local area and we knew there should be a better, more efficient way to do this. As mums ourselves, we understand just how precious a parent’s time is and the less time spent looking for fun stuff to do, the better. The classes, events and activities were out there, we just needed to create a platform to find them. And that was how Loopla was born! Newly launched in 2022, our mission is to connect parents and local businesses quickly so that we can provide a hub of opportunity for both. Our events are currently based in London and the surrounding areas but we’re branching out to new locations every month, so if your area isn’t covered yet, we hope to reach you soon. We’re proud to showcase hundreds of local businesses and organisers who run fantastic activities and events, providing children of all ages with fulfilling and enriching experiences, and we can’t wait to add even more to Loopla.

How it works

The platform is completely free to use. You can search by postcode, age, date or type of activity and see a list of the classes and events near you. We’ve even got a handy map to show the locations with cards for each event. Loopla displays which activities are weekly classes and which are one-off events or holiday camps, to help you find exactly what you’re looking for as quickly as possible. And we have a Local Services section coming online soon where you can find local party entertainers and other family-based professionals near you. To enquire about an activity or class, you simply need to select the day and time you want and then Loopla will send an email enquiry directly to the organiser. They will then contact you directly by email to take the booking. Later this year a brand new booking function will be launching on the platform so there’s lots to look forward to. From Archery to Zen classes, we strive to be the most comprehensive resource for parents, helping you make the most of their time with your children. We’ve worked hard to connect you to amazing events and class organisers near you, so you can spend more time having fun with your children and less time searching online. Hooray!
