Dance-y pants families, your prayers have been answered as a brand new nightclub for parents and kids opens this weekend.
Big Fish Little Fish is a concept fresh from the UK, and it’s hitting the Gold Coast on Saturday. Co-ordinator Stuart Mattheson says his own family love music and having fun together, and his kids couldn’t be more stoked to have their very own rave AND Daddy DJ!
“The experience of having my children watch their daddy DJ was just incredible,” Stuart told the Gold Coast Bulletin. “Seeing all the parents and children’s faces at the event was really something special and the feedback we get is always so positive.”
The Gold Coast rave follows the huge success of Big Fish Little Fish events in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and beyond.
Safe AND fun!
This weekend’s dance party is in a grown-up nightclub, but the venue has some minor adjustments to ensure everyone is happy and safe. The music is played at a level that suits little ears and there are extra activities – hello ball pit, face-painting, chill out room and craft area! – guaranteeing everyone is kept busy and beaming.
“The party includes a multi sensory dance floor using things such as bubbles, themed lights, glow sticks and projected synched videos, which both little and larger ravers love,” Stuart explained. “Each venue has a thorough risk and safety check before the event begins.”
Adults are only allowed entry if they are accompanying a child, and the party – which has an Under The Sea theme – runs for three hours. That’s just enough time to burn up the dance floor, pop some bubbles and make some craft/new friends, we think!
