Date City Venue
10/22/17 28-36 Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth Big Fish Little Fish (Bournemouth)
Time: 2:00pm. Admission: £7. Age restrictions: All Ages/Licensed. Address: The Old Fire Station. Join the award-winning, critically acclaimed Big Fish Little Fish crew and headline DJ Chad Jackson (DMC World Champion / ex-Hacienda Resident) at a rave for families with children aged 0-8 years. With the BFLF rave one of the 2016 festival’s most popular ticketed events, be sure to secure yours early to avoid disappointment. Designed as much for grown-ups as for children, the rave will be daft, social, anarchic and a whole load of fun for everyone together! Experience a dancefloor full of bubbles, club visuals, glitter cannons, huge balloons and a giant parachute dance, all to a soundtrack of proper club tunes. Collaborate on a giant colouring mural, create at the play dough table, get a temporary tattoo and get creative at the crafting tables with The Creation Station. Play and relax in the baby chill-out area on mats with tents, tunnels and ball pool (for the littlest ravers). Dressing up is encouraged – the theme is “Surf’s Up” – think beach wear, shorts ‘n’ shades, Hawaiian shirts. For families with younger children (8s and under) though older siblings are welcome. Parents remain responsible for their children at all times. The event is standing/dancing with limited seating. It will be busy with several hundred people and in low lighting (no strobes) conditions. The licensed bar will be open but no glass will be allowed in the event. 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. ‘Reliably excellent’ – The Guardian Best Family Event 2014-2017 – Family Arts Festival www.bigfishlittlefishevents.co.uk www.facebook.com/bigfishlittlefishevents www.twitter.com/bflfevents Buy Tickets
