Back once again like the Renegade Master! 

Big Fish Little Fish continues to be a raving success and is coming back for one more massively successful family event at Groombridge Place with a Wild Winter Rave. Fan (and indeed Groombridge Place) favourites DJs Baker & Beale (Rude and Deadly/Xfm) on the decks.

Due to the exceptional popularity of this event it has been extended by an hour - what more mischief can we get up to eh?

A world of music, dance, craft and fun for families (aimed particularly for families with children aged 0-8 years but all ages welcome) that has won Best Family Event for 3 years running at The Arts Council National Family Arts Festival Awards and this year also won all 3 Audience Choice Awards for Best Event, Best venue and Best Welcome.

Dress up as a a woodland creature or full on rave child and let yourself go to the bangin'  choons of the rave masters.  Throw some shapes in the open air to the BFLF classic mix of old skool, house, techno and drum'n'bass. With glitter cannons, bubble machines, giant balloons and a huge parachute finale, this will be a wintry delight of an event!

Captain Cookie's craft tables and giant colouring murals complement the theme - older children can make accessories and receive free transfer tattoos and the littlies will adore playing at the play-doh table.

With licensed bars, great food on sale and a chill out area for babies there is something for everyone. 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.

All this and home by teatime! .

The last three events sold out  - it is seriously good fun.

Come be a bit of an animal, dance, laugh, craft and be daft - see you on the dance floor!
