Raving with Big Fish Little Fish
Are you ready to celebrate life, love, unity and rave music? Now in their fifth year, Big Fish Little Fish continues to smash out afternoon raves for families with legendary DJs, bubble machines, confetti cannons, glow sticks and even the odd chill out zone. We spoke to South West Regional Manager, Neil Briggs, to hear how BFLF is bringing families together one rave at a time.
"It's a real bonding experience because we're playing the music that the parents used to go out and listen to before they had kids, and they are then really getting into it and enjoying it with their children." says Neil Briggs, SW Regional Manager of Big Fish Little Fish.
It all started in Brixton back in 2013, when Hannah Saunders created Big Fish Little Fish inspired by her lifelong love of clubbing and her children’s enjoyment of festivals. BFLF is now multi-award winning, picking up the gong for Family Arts - Best Family Event for four years on the trot with stints at major festivals from Glastonbury to Edinburgh and weekend afternoon raves running across the UK now.
Neil and his wife met through DJ-ing and since went on to have children. When they moved to Devon a simple tweet to BFLF was all it took to start the conversation about running the South West events. Their three loves - family, DJ-ing and rave culture - could come together with an amazing purpose.
We caught the action at Grinagog Festival and it was a thing of beauty - happy faces everywhere, parents teaching their kids the cardboard box and the most glitter we've seen since Christmas - but is it art?
Get yourself and your little ones down to the next family rave. Tickets start from around £8. Find out more at http://www.bigfishlittlefishevents.co.uk/events/
