MUSIC loving parents of little ones will be breathing a sigh of relief when the fabulous Belle et la Beat event returns in a couple of weeks.

The family friendly multi-gig takes place at Chalkwell House - the Metal HQ in Chalkwell Park - on Saturday May 14, and as usual lays on activities to keep the little ones amused as well as providing a quality line-up.

This time Island City, the Scarletts, the Mudlarks, Owen Williams, Artgruppe and Angel and the Melodyhorns are so far confirmed on the bill, with more expected.

There will be also be spoken word, children's craft activities, a bar and snacks.

Belle et la Beat was started several years ago by musicians Wendy Solomon and Michelle Bappoo, who noted there were not many child friendly music events taking place in an area saturated with music lovers who also happen to have kids.

It takes place at 3:30pm until 7:30pm.

Admission is free.
