Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave

Shiver Me Timbers, a pirate-themed family rave with DJ Alex Paterson (The Orb).

Set sail with the award winning, world famous Big Fish Little Fish crew and their shipmates as they bring their pioneering family rave to The Hawth.

Avast ye land lubbers and dance together on a floor filled with bubbles, balloons, glitter and topped by the parachute dance!  Get nautically crafty on the Captain Cookie craft tables, enjoy some shore leave in the baby chill out or play areas and a tot of rum in the licensed bar.

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 DJ Alex Paterson (The Orb) on the decks playing acid house, techno and drum 'n' bass classics.

BFLF is primarily aimed at families with 0-8 year olds but older siblings are welcome. Fancy dress (optional): piratical!
