BALHAM (S LONDON) ’30 Years of Acid House/5 Years of BFLF’ family rave DJ Food 25th March
BFLF and RAVE’s BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
30 years since the rave summer of love, 5 years since BFLF started!
Come celebrate with us as we wave a fond ‘see you soon’ to our longest running venue The Bedford as it closes to undergo a refurb. This is many BFLFers favourite venue and we have a whole host of stories about BFLFs that have happened here – some probably best not to describe here and now! To see us out in fine form is DJ Food – who headlined the first proper BFLF in 2013 and has done two legendary BFLF gigs at the Bedford.
World famous, award winning, Glastonbury Festival performing, family rave sensation BFLF throws the ultimate family event in our wonderful Balham, South London venue – The Bedford. Our Balham shows usually sell out in advance so please buy early to avoid disappointment.
Family fun for the post-rave generation of parents. Helping parents be responsibly irresponsible since 2013.
DJ Food will spin club classics old skool, house, hip hop, electro, techno, UK garage, drum’n’bass and anything else that takes his fancy.
Multi-sensory dancefloor in a galleried theatre with glitter cannons, bubbles, giant balloons and parachute dance finale.
Captain Cookie Craft tables with giant mural, themed crafts and playdoh table.

For birthday parties the ratio must be 1 adult per two children to ensure safe supervision.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 500 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.
