MANCHESTER – Big Fish Little Fish x Tangled Xmas Takeover 9th Dec

We have taken the decision to move this Sunday’s Manchester event to The Birdcage (Withy Grove, Manchester, M4 3AQ), another one of our regular venues. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this might cause, but the serious incident outside FAC251 last weekend has raised doubts over its current licensing arrangements and we wanted to ensure that our event was able to go ahead. If you have any questions please email Rachel at

Adults remain responsible for their children at all times.

For families with younger children (8s and under) though all ages are welcome, as long as there are both adults and children in your party. Adult only groups are not admitted. A max of 3 children per adult in a family. If attending as a large birthday party please ensure one adult to two children minimum. We will refuse entry to groups where there is inadequate supervision. 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 transferred/sold on.

Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants free (but ticketed). Will cost more on the door (if tickets available).

The event will be busy. The dancefloor is for adults and children to dance together. For indoor events low lighting/club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used.

Music level is set and monitored throughout to abide by WHO guidelines. This is far lower than usual clubs levels but given the number of children attending there is a constant level of background noise during the event.

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

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.

DJs will be announced in advance of each party via Twitter and Facebook but may be subject to unavoidable change.
