We are thrilled to announce our second FAMILY RAVE in The Fox & Firkin. This is an incredible venue that has undergone significant changes recently and now has a magnificent outdoors garden – with a large tented area – that has a very strong festival vibe. Loads of space and all one level for us to rave in!

DRUM AND BASS SPECIAL – DnB legend DJ Aphrodite will be on the decks!

MY FIRST BOOK OF DRUM AND BASS – this great new book for the very youngest DnB fans is launching at the event! A brilliantly fun and attractive book for all generations to enjoy together, it has the support of legends such as London Elektricty. The author Charlie Wright will be on hand to sign copies (available to buy on the day at a BFLF discounted rate of £10) and also show his credentials by doing a warm up set for Aphrodite.

Dance together on a dance floor filled with bubbles, balloons, and topped by the parachute dance in this amazing outdoor venue!

Get super crafty on the Nifty Natty Craft tables and enjoy the Villa Pia baby chill out cabin.

Licensed bar. 

Fancy dress (optional): flower power/summer of love/festival!

Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating, club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used and events are busy with around 600 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.

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.

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.


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.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of public transport options and some parking in nerby residential areas.

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. If well in advance of a sold out event please email so we can try and match you with someone on the waiting list. 

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 2.5 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.Fox & Forgin
