Welcome to Mess Around
South Yorkshire!

Hello! Thanks for visiting!

I’m Alanna and I own and manage Mess Around South Yorkshire. I live in Stocksbridge, Sheffield with my husband Antonio, my gorgeous (but crazy) almost 4 year old Elliott and our cat Cleo (who weirdly has extra toes!!).

Having our son in 2016 made me feel very differently about my demanding career as a Team Manager in Children and Family Services. And I really wanted to find something that meant I could spend less time in the office and more time with my family, whilst still working with children and their families. I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed creating fun, sensory and expressive activities for Elliott as he has grown and am a huge fan of the ‘Tuff tray’ and helping him to create plenty of mess! We attended Mess Around Sessions together previously as a family and absolutely loved the wide range of activities, themes offered and the party atmosphere!! Especially the ‘snow storm foam dance party’ at the end of each session….So when the franchise opportunity became available I jumped at the chance!

Really looking forward to sharing the Mess Around experience and helping you to build messy memories at an event in South Yorkshire soon!
