Busy Rascals Loves

Busy Rascals at The Queensbury is a project based in Willesden Green, London NW2 bringing activities into the local community for parents and their babies and children.


Busy Rascals provide a baby and child/ children friendly environment where parents in NW2, NW10, NW6 and in local areas can meet, socialise and participate in various activities with their little ones.

Busy Rascals host parent and baby/toddler/pre-schooler/children mornings Monday to Friday and one Saturday per month between 9.30am-11.30am (time depends on class times so please check each day’s timetable for specific times) at the Queensbury Pub, 110 Walm Lane, Willesden Green NW2 4RS.
