The original family ravers, Big Fish Little Fish, are back and returning to The Nightingale in Birmingham for a spooktakular Halloween special.
Old Skool Drum & Bass and Jungle legend, DJ SS (Flashback, Hysteria), will be headlining with a multisensory dancefloor with club visuals, glitter cannons, bubbles, giant bouncy balloons, all topped off with the famous parachute dance.
Upstairs, DJ Farz will be playing Old Skool Garage tunes along side a toddler play area with tents and tunnels. There is also a baby safe space with soft mats, a ball pool and inflatables.
Children can get busy making a spooktacular craft, be artistic on the giant themed colouring mural, and be creative at the homemade playdoh table. Artistic facepainting from Sara’s Parlor and tasty baked treats from Kei’s Bakes wil also available. Plus, the bar will be open for a cheeky drink.
The fancy dress theme is ‘Halloween’ – optional but very much encouraged.
Regional Manager, Sophie Parekh said: “It is so great to back family raving, I think everyone needs a good dance! The team at Nightingales are fantastic and go out of their way to accommodate families”. DJ SS, who is a regular at Big Fish Fish Litle Fish, said: “ I love playing Big Fish Little Fish, the events are always amazing. Looking forward to it”.
The event is taking place from 2pm - 4.30pm on Sunday 31 October at The Nightingale. Tickets are available here.
