Baby Shows & Nearly-New Markets

One for the whole family! Come and shine the spotlight on your little ones while getting to know some of our favourite local businesses at our baby events. Or why not treat your munchkin to some beautiful pre-loved items at one of our nearly-new sales.

Wedding Fairs

Whether you are recently engaged or knee deep in your wedding plans, our wedding shows are not to be missed! Meet some incredible local suppliers from all over the industry, here specifically to make your wedding day the day of your dreams.

Makers Markets

If you're a craft lover at heart then this one is for you! We welcome small businesses to showcase their beautiful hand-crafted products.

Emma Rees, founded of Little Rain Events

Hello! I'm Emma, the woman behind the clipboard.

We are a family-run team who are passionate about planning fun and inspiring days out for all to enjoy. We offer a range of public events local to Burton, Derby and Derbyshire, specialising in the things we know and love - from baby and toddler events and nearly-new markets, to wedding shows and makers markets. Not only do we want you to find some beautiful items and highly rated services, but also to enjoy celebrating and supporting local small businesses and families.

Some of our events have the opportunity to help local charities too, through clothing, item or cash donations. If you are interested in donating at one of our events, please get in touch using our contact form.
