The event will be busy with hundreds of people attending. The dancefloor is for adults and children to dance together. It is meant to create a clublike atmosphere so there are no DJ requests/birthday shout outs.

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

There will be low lighting (no strobes) so please allow a few minutes for your eyes to adjust when entering.

Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance.

Buggies must be left in buggy park outside the event space and will not be allowed on the dance floor.

A licensed bar will be open during the event but no glass is permitted. 

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.

DJ lineup may be subject to unavoidable change.

BFLF sets and monitors the volume using World Health Organisation guidelines – so that is 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.
