Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave are proud to announce A Party Like No Other – Ultimate Family Rave at iconic nightclub fabric in September 2022 – and this time we’ll do it dressed as PIRATES! Or yes we arrrrrrrrrrrre!

Room 2 (DnB/Jungle) – Mark XTC will bring some original junglist style taking us on a journey of sound for the whole two and a half hours. I long promised Mark the full set at Fabric and I am dleighted tool Outfinally be making good on my promise – his recent all jungle sets for us at festivals have become legends.

Well shiver me timbers, Fabric are once more opening their doors to a family audience and family rave pioneers Big Fish Little Fish to bring you a mind-blowing selection of DJs – and this time it’s PIRATE themed. Hannah BFLF really wants to see Fabric full of raving families dressed as pirates, as I’m sure you do too.

BFLF take the banging tunes, unity and escapism you remember from the classic days of rave and bring them to a family audience, celebrating life together on the dancefloor. Created by families for families and by clubbers with decades of experience between them, you can re-live your clubbing glory years with a toddler on your shoulders, a pint in your hand and world-class DJs on the decks. 

Families dance amongst confetti cannons, bubbles, foam, giant balloons and everyone joins together for the parachute dance finale.

There’s a face-painting stall (our excellent face painters charge £6 per face for a child, £8 for adults and can only accept cash – only children over 2 can have their faces painted), piratical crafting with Nifty Natty, a giant mural to colour in and the Villa Pia baby chill out zone. 

So buckle those swashes, grab your toddler and a tot of rum and I’ll see you on the dancefloor me hearties!

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

Baker Chef will provide a range of homemade sweet and savoury snacks (cards accepted). 

Licensed bar for the adults.

BFLF is primarily aimed at families with 0-8 year olds but older siblings are welcome. 

Fancy dress (optional): Everything pirate!

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 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 and a half 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.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
