Following a two year absence, baby rave specialist Big Fish Little Fish (BFLF) is bringing its award-winning show back to the UK this New Year’s Eve. The event will take place on Friday, 31 December at La Belle Angele in Edinburgh.

Founded in 2013 by a team describing themselves as an “independent, grassroots music and events crew of seasoned ravers”, BFLF is now one of the largest baby ravers in the game.

The family-friendly event is designed to appeal to both adults and children, specifically for anyone with young children aged eight and under, though older kids are also welcome. Ravers – both large and small – are encouraged to dress up for the disco ball theme and dance to the soundtrack of house and disco.

Throwback club classics will also be played as bubble and snow machines, glitter cannons and club visuals reignite 90s nostalgia. Music level will be set and monitored throughout to abide by WHO guidelines, ensuring that they are always at safe levels for kids.

The venue will also include a “chillout area” for babies, as well as an arts and craft zone with colouring activities, playdough and transfer tattoos. As for the adults, a licensed bar and food stall will be available.

Kirstie Wilson, BFLF’s Scotland Manager, said in an interview with Edinburgh Live: “This is going to be our first Edinburgh date since COVID-19 struck, so it’s going to be a very special moment for us all. To top it, our Hogmanay events are always hugely popular for a great, alternative family day out for parents who might not be able to make it out for the bells.”

“It’s crazy to think that some of our past tiny guests will now be toddlers or started school and we’ll have a whole new crowd of first time tiny ravers too!” she added.

Entry is free for non-walking infants and vaccine passports are not required for entry to the event.
