5 Reasons to Take Your Kids to a Rave


5 Reasons to Take Your Kids to a Rave

If you’re bored of long weekends trying to keep your kids busy and entertained, drinking horrible coffee in soft play areas and dragging your kids around the supermarket- this one’s for you. A couple of months ago, I took my two year old to a nightclub in Brixton. Yes a real one with an actual bar, DJ and everything. The only difference was that it was 2pm on a Saturday afternoon and the place was rammed to the hilt with toddlers. The ‘baby rave’ craze is taking London by storm and for very good reason.

Big Fish Little Fish, the events company behind these brilliant parties have absolutely hit the nail on the head in designing the perfect family event. Not only do they have out of the ordinary events spaces and fantastic DJs, there’s also an arts and crafts area and refreshments if you need to take a little breather. Still not convinced?

Here are 5 (and there are many more) reasons why you should be taking your kids to a baby rave.

Nostalgia Most of us have very happy memories in places such as this, albeit at 2am, but even so- just stepping inside gave me that buzz of excitement that I don’t experience as much as I would like to these days. There’s also zero percent chance of staying out too late and regretting it in the morning, which is kind of nice.

You can meet like-minded parents One of the toughest things I’ve found about being a parent is finding other parents like me. Don’t get me wrong; everyone I met here was completely normal- they were just up for having a good time with their kids. The parents that you’ll find here are good fun, adventurous and family oriented.

It really tires them out It’s pretty stimulating. Raffy was knocked out cold the second he sat in his car seat, slept the whole way home and still went to bed on time. He loved it and talked about ‘the dark party’ for days.

It’s so sociable Not only is it a great place to meet other parents, it’s a great place for kids to meet other kids. It’s far better than a birthday party because nobody knows anybody else and kids have to interact with new people. It’s gorgeous watching kids dance and copy each other in such a free and fun space and definitely something I want to do with him regularly.

It’s a great together activity Instead of sitting in a soft play area cafe while the kids go off and play- I danced and played with Raffy for the whole two hours. It wasn’t at all hard work, it was hilarious. I loved watching him dance and helping him catch bubbles or collect confetti from the floor. All of the parents there were interacting and playing with their kids- all doing something that they love, as a family.
