FAQs and Info

Covid cancellation protection

If we need to cancel the event due to covid you will be offered a full refund or ticket transfer.

We will follow recommended covid advice at the time. If you test is positive or you have symptoms (and you notify us within 48 hours of the event) will we transfer your tickets to a future event, so you don’t miss out!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All ages very welcome, but activities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Music is played at safe levels for everyone.

How loud will it be?

Music level is set and monitored throughout to abide by WHO guidelines. This is far lower than usual club levels but given the number of children attending there is a constant level of background noise during the event. 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.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Forum is situated in the centre of Barrow. It is approximately 15-20 minutes’ walk from Barrow train station. There are several carparks nearby.

Buggies and prams

Buggies must be left in buggy park outside the event space and will not be allowed on the dance floor. There is limited storage space available, so please leave buggies at home, if possible. All valuables are the parents’ responsibility. Slings encouraged for little babies to enable dancing!

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 and we will try and sell them to someone on the waiting list. If within 24 hours of the event, then please post them to sell on the Facebook event page. Please inform us if you post on Facebook, as we validate these posts.

Tickets and larger groups

For families with younger children (8s and under) though all ages are welcome, if there are both adults and children in your party. Adult only groups are not admitted. A max of 3 children per adult in a family.

Each member of your group must have a ticket including under 2s who are free (but ticketed).

If attending as a large birthday party, please ensure one adult to two children minimum. We will refuse entry to groups where there is inadequate supervision. If there are more than 4 adults per child in your group, please contact The Forum for pre-approval before buying tickets.


Adults remain responsible for their children at all times.

The event will be busy. The dancefloor is for adults and children to dance together. For indoor events low lighting/club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used.

Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating.

Just a reminder…

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 will be no kids’ music, games or DJ shout outs. The effect is to give families unity on the dancefloor – dancing together. DJs will be announced in advance of each party via Twitter and Facebook but may be subject to unavoidable change.

See you on the dancefloor!
