  • BFLF sets and monitors the volume using World Health Organisation guidelines – so that it is at a safe level for everyone over the 2 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 your children are particularly sensitive to noise or if you want them to nap then you might want to consider it.
