Multiple venues Sunday February 28 2016 - Sunday March 13 2016

These afternoon dance parties playing acid house classics allow the post-rave generation of parents to share the old-school dancefloor euphoria with their kids – and still be home by bedtime. With bubbles, confetti, glitterballs and manic movement, the energy of families cutting loose in the early afternoon isn't far from the primal delirium of a club in the early hours. There's a baby chillout area with mats and a ball pool for those too little to dance, plus a crafts area and a parachute finale. Ages 0-8.

We went to Big Fish Little Fish at Stratford Circus for their Halloween party and we had a great time. It's not often you can go to an actual rave with your kids, with actual proper DJ's (good ones, mostly from the 90's) and an actual bar, as well as some nice nibbles and lots for the children to do. Older kids were having a fabulous time doing arts and crafts, when they weren't whipping up a storm on the dance floor. There was also a 'chill out' area which was suitable for toddlers and babies, with a few floor cushions, books and ball-pits - I do think slightly more could be made of this area as there is not as much to do for the really little ones but that would be my only criticism. The music is brilliant (particularly if you like a bit of 90's) and the DJ line-up very impressive. Kids and babies all love the 'parachute dance', bubble machines and balloons in the main area. Tickets aren't the cheapest but I do think this is a unique event where everyone genuinely has a brilliant time, as the reviewer below says - you get a bit of your pre-child life back for a few hours and get to show the kids how its done.

Have been to a few Big Fish Little Fish events now and have always had the most amazing time – not sure who enjoy the events more? Our six and three year olds, or us?! Lots of happy parents there reminiscing and throwing some shapes on the dance floor, and kids amazed by all stuff going on – glitter bombs, balloons, creative corner, bubbles, parachute and the baby chill-out area – all washed down with some banging old-school tunes. Coming out to bright sunshine after clubbing for a few hours in the afternoon brought back loads of very cool memories of our pre-children days – what a brilliant way to spend an afternoon – We get a little bit of our old life back, with the pleasure of sharing it with the ones we love most in our new one.
