Parents remain responsible for their children at all times.

For families with younger children (8s and under) though all ages are welcome. No only adult groups are permitted.

A max of 3 children per adult. If in a large group (more than two families) then one adult per two children please. If there are more than 4 adults per child in your group please email for pre-approval before buying tickets.

Tickets are non-refundable but can be sold on to others.

Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants are free (but ticketed).

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. If you can manage without a buggy, please do.

We may photograph or film parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes.

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 is no kids music, nor games, nor DJ shout outs. The effect is to give families unity on the dancefloor – dancing together.

DJ lineup may change at short notice.


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

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

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

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.

How loud will it be?

BFLF sets and monitors the volume using World Health Organisation guidelines – so that is it at a safe level for everyone, even the youngest babies, 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 yours are particularly sensitive to noise or if you want them to nap then you might want to consider it.
