Big Fish Little Fish x Upper Norwood Library Hub ‘Once Upon A Time’ Family Rave feat DJ Mr Switch ‘Story of Bass’ set
The Upper Norwood Library Hub is bringing award winning, original family rave sensation Big Fish Little Fish under its roof for the fourth time for a celebration of storytelling in all its forms! This magical event is literary-themed ‘Once Upon a Time’ to mark World Book Day and Shakespear’s birthday – dress up as your favourite character from book or fable to cut some shapes on the dancefloor!
This unique event will have 3 floors of fun with acclaimed DJ Mr Switch telling the Story of Bass in his two hour set covering everything from hip hop to jungle to UK Garage, drum and bass and dubstep!
We are thrilled that author Uju Asika will be reading from and signing copies of her new picture book for pre-schoolers ‘A World for Me and You’ as well as her best seller ‘Bringing Up Race: How to Raise a Kind Child in a Prejudiced World’.
BFLF take the banging tunes, unity and escapism you remember from the classic days of rave and bring them to a family audience. Created by families for families, BFLF is the result of decades of clubbing/festival experience.
You can party to the best in dance music played by this brilliant DJ with a toddler on your shoulders, a drink in your hand and a smile on your face at the library.
Dance with your little ones amongst confetti cannons, bubbles and giant balloons and take part in the parachute dance finale.

Buggy parking, baby changing facilities and friendly stewards help things run smoothly and safely.
