Fam­ily ravers hit the dance floor

AROUND 350 post-rave gen­er­a­tion par­ents donned lu­mi­nous leg-warm­ers when an award-win­ning fam­ily rave came to High Wy­combe on Satur­day.

The crew at Big Fish Lit­tle Fish (BFLF), a creative dance and mu­sic rave for par­ents and their chil­dren, draw on their ex­pe­ri­ence as sea­soned club­bers and par­ents to cre­ate an­ar­chic and so­cial fun for all ages.

The Wy­combe Swan was show­ered in glit­ter as Bucks fam­i­lies en­joyed para­chute dances, arts and crafts, gi­ant bal­loons and the oc­ca­sional pint.

Han­nah Saun­ders, the founder of BFLF, said she cre­ated the crit­i­cally-ac­claimed com­pany be­cause there was noth­ing else like it on the mar­ket.

Ms Saun­ders says BFLF, which tours across the coun­try, cre­ates “some­where re­laxed, en­ter­tain­ing and daft, where the adults en­joy them­selves as much as the chil­dren and vice versa”.

Fancy dress was en­cour­aged at the event, so a range of Storm Troop­ers, Buzz Lightyears and princesses made an ap­pear­ance this Satur­day.

2 Bad Mice were on the decks, play­ing clas­sic club and rave tracks through­out, and there was also Villa Pia baby chill-out and play rooms.

The com­pany, which won Best Fam­ily Event in both 2014 and 2015 at the Na­tional Fam­ily Arts Fes­ti­val, has ex­panded from a monthly party in Brix­ton to a ma­jor party event.

They have now hosted events at Sel­fridges in Ox­ford Street, The Na­tional Gallery and The Museum of London Dock­lands.
