Meet & Greets

Sunday 4th July 2021

Nigel Clarke is a TV presenter and performer, best known for his work on The Baby Club and is founder of Dadvengers and will be appearing at Kidztopia all weekend for safe Meet & Greets.

Born and raised in London to West Indian Parents, Nigel is a rare and talented find. Since January 2019, he has been at the helm of the hugely successful The Baby Club on Cbeebies, which was described by The Guardian, as ‘a TV godsend for frazzled new parents’. Alongside Giovanna Fletcher, he leads babies and their parents in charming songs, games and calming storytime. 

Following on from the success of The Baby Club, Nigel discovered the lack of information and support for dads and started the Dadvengers initiative.

A well experienced hand, Nigel has also presented a wide variety of programmes including the Cbeebies Proms, Dance Factory, Clutter Nutters, Sportsround and Totally Rubbish for the BBC. Toonattik for GMTV, Unlimited for facebook, Skillicious for ITV, My Camp Rock for Disney, and Rat Race Urban Adventure for Channel 4. In addition, he hosts red carpet and behind the scenes coverage for BAFTA and Disney. 

Nigel is also incredibly passionate about dance, music and sport. He also performs in the hugely successful percussion show STOMP, both in the West End and internationally. This has led him to perform at events such as the Olympics Closing Ceremony 2012, Live at the Palladium, The Royal Variety Performance and The World Music Awards.
