BIRMINGHAM Big Fish Little Fish Desi Beats Family Rave
We are super excited to announce the first-ever DESI BEATS family rave with BBC2 Presenter and DJ, Bobby Friction!
Join the original family ravers, Big Fish Little Fish, on a multi-sensory dancefloor filled with bubbles, balloons, confetti cannons, snow foam and lots of good vibes.
Share your favourite desi tunes with the whole family at a sound level safe for little ears. Fancy dress is optional but ‘bright and beautiful’ colours are massively encouraged 🙂
All ages are very welcome, but activities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Adult only groups are not permitted and prewalkers are free, but will still require a ticket.
There will be…..
- Craft and playdoh tables
- Giant colouring-in mural
- Baby Chill area with small ball pool, mats and tents (non-walkers only)
- Toddler Town – tents and tunnels (ideal for 4 and under)
- Giant parachute dance
- Licensed bar, face painter stall and snacks (additional cost)
We aim to give families an authentic nightclub experience so please expect limited seating, low light and a busy atmosphere.
Please email Sophie at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
- ‘Reliably excellent’ – The Guardian
- “Worth having kids for” – BFLF First Timer
- 2014 – 2019 Best Family Event – National Family Arts Festival Awards
IMPORTANT INFO (but a tad boring)

Toilets and nappy changing facilities
There are toilets on all floors and changing tables and/or mats will be available. There will be no high chairs available.
Prams/buggies/general kid stuff
There is very limited storage space available, please leave prams behind if possible. Valuables (including kids) are the parent’s responsibility. Prams will not be allowed on the dance floor. Slings are encouraged and are cool!
Everyone is welcome on the dancefloor! If you, or your child, has any additional requirements, please get in touch. We have a range of measures that can help make your visit as comfortable as possible. Email email@example.com for more info
What’s the refund policy?
There is a no refund policy. 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. Please inform us if you post on Facebook, as we validate these posts
* Adults remain responsible for their children at all times
* Adult only groups are not admitted. A max of 3 children per adult in a family.
* 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. BFLF Crew will monitor the stairs.
* Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating
* Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance
If attending as a large 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 email email@example.com for pre-approval before buying tickets
Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants are free (but ticketed). Please purchase bear in mind the age your child will be at the time the event will take place. It will cost more on the door (if tickets are available)
The music level is set and monitored throughout to abide by WHO guidelines. 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.
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
When you purchase a ticket through Eventbrite you will automatically get added to our mailing list so that we can send you any important event information as well as future events. You can unsubscribe at any time.
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 kid’s 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.
