The Horniman is bringing Big Fish Little Fish Family rave under its roof for the first time this Winter!
Acid house original DJ Food (NinjaTune/Further) plays an eclectic set taking in acid house, hip hop, techno, drum and bass and even a splash of quality pop.
BFLF take the banging tunes, unity and escapism you remember from the classic days of rave and bring them to a family audience. Created by families for families, BFLF is the result of decades of clubbing/festival experience.
Taking our cue from the Horniman’s wonderful Natural History Gallery collection, the fancy dress theme for this event will be ‘Animal Fantastical’.
You can party to the best in dance music played by their brilliant DJ with a toddler on your shoulders, a drink in your hand and a smile on your face at the Horniman.
Dance with your little ones amongst confetti cannons, bubbles and giant balloons and take part in the parachute dance finale.
Get crafting with Captain Cookie at the craft tables, plus colour in a giant, animal-themed mural or take a break in the baby chill-out zone.
Buggy parking, baby changing facilities and friendly stewards help things run smoothly and safely.
Free glowsticks and transfer tattoos for the children.
Licensed bar for the adults.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
All ages welcome but activities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Music is played at safe levels for everyone.
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 and a half 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.
