  • All ages are very welcome, but activities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Music is played at safe levels for everyone.
  • 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 so we can try and match you with someone on the waiting list.
  • 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.
  • 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 for pre-approval before buying tickets
  • Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants free (but ticketed). It will cost more on the door (if tickets are available)
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating
  • Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance
  • 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 shoutouts. The effect is to give families unity on the dancefloor – dancing together
  • 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
  • DJs will be announced in advance of each party via Twitter and Facebook but may be subject to unavoidable change.
