Venture into the Enchanted Woods at Groombridge Place for a party like no other in a spectacular forest setting. Dress up as a fairy, elf or magical woodland creature for Big Fish Little Fish’s ‘Midsummer Dream’ Family Rave with crowd pleasing BFLF resident DJ Will Nicol (Northern Soul Rave Patrol).
Previous parties have sold out and received many 5 star reviews from attendees, so be quick to get your tickets. You can see why BFLF is so popular, they bring together uplifting dance music, craft activities, play areas, a bar for the adults and a dancefloor full of bubbles, confetti cannons, balloons and a giant parachute dance to round things off.
There’s nothing as much fun as dancing in the open air, surrounded by beautiful nature while your children have as much fun as you do! Take time out to colour in the specially commissioned mural, play at the play-doh table or climb on the wooden ship! It’s a dream come true…
Optional fancy dress: fairy, elf or woodland creature.
All this and home by teatime!
As this is an outdoor event we can only accept cash as payment. Please also note appropriate clothing must be worn depending on the weather.

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 2.5 hour duration of the event. Though quieter than at adult events, it is still loud enough to feel like you are at a festival. 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.

What’s the refund policy?
There is a no refund policy but if you are unable to attend you may sell your tickets to someone else.
