Richard Norris (The Grid) will play his first BFLF mega rave after his brilliant debut for us in Proud Embankment last year.
An incredible under-the-railway-arches multi room club with one dancefloor surrounded by an LED light ceiling and state of the art sound system. Accessed via a covered outdoor area that is the perfect break out space – it’s a great place for a family rave.
Join the award winning, world famous Big Fish Little Fish pioneering family ravers as they bring acid house, techno, house, hip hop, drum ‘n’ bass to families with 0-8 year olds with 3 rooms of live DJs.
Dance together on a dance floor filled with bubbles, balloons, glitter and topped by the parachute dance in this amazing under the arches venue!
Get super crafty on the Captain Cookie Craft tables and enjoy the Villa Pia baby chill out or play areas.
Fancy dress (optional): film icons.

Facepainters our excellent facepainter will be on hand. Be transformed! Poppy & Perle. Kids £6 – Adults £8. To be painted children must be over 2. Cash only for face-painting.
Parents remain responsible for their children at all times.
For families with younger children (8s and under) though all ages are welcome. Adults are not admitted unless accompanied by a child.
A max of 3 children per adult. If in a large group then one adult per two children please. If there are more than 4 adults per child in your group please email firstname.lastname@example.org for pre-approval before buying tickets.
Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred/sold on and if anybody with tickets finds they cannot attend a sold-out event please email email@example.com and BFLF will attempt to put you in touch with people seeking to buy tickets. Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants free (but ticketed). Will cost more on the door (if tickets available).
Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating, club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used and events are busy with around 800 people at each party – which helps create the rave ambience. Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance.
Buggies must be left in buggy park and will not be allowed on the dance floor.
We may photograph or film small parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes.
Please be aware that BFLF is designed to provide a family friendly, authentic club experience and is not a traditional children’s party or disco. There is no kids music, nor games, nor DJ shout outs. The effect is to give families unity on the dancefloor – dancing together.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
All ages welcome but acitivities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Music is played at safe levels for everyone.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Very close to train and tube stations and lots of buses nearby. Parking is free in the nearby roads.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
What’s the refund policy?
There is a no refund policy but if you are unable to attend you may sell your tickets to someone else. If well in advance of a sold out event please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can try and match you with someone on the waiting list. If within 24hours of the event then please post them to sell on the Facebook event page – where we will validate that you have tickets.
How loud will it be?
BFLF sets and monitors the volume using World Health Organisation guidelines – so that is it at a safe level for everyone, even the youngest babies, over the 2.5 hour duration of the event. Though quieter than at adult events, it is still loud enough to feel like you are at a club. Most parents do not use ear defenders on their children but if yours are particularly sensitive to noise or if you want them to nap then you might want to consider it.
