We did something slightly outside the box at the weekend. We went to a Rave. For children. At Ministry of Sound. Am I cool enough? No, actually. Not really. But it was flipping ace anyway.
So you’ve probably heard of baby discos, which are a great way to spend a rainy afternoon pretending you still have a life. But this – a baby RAVE – is a whole new ball game. This was Rave-A-Roo. And it was SO MUCH FUN.
It felt a bit surreal to start with, queing up in a club, heading to the bar, picking up a bunch of glow sticks and heading to the dance floor with my 3 year old – who looked even more confused than me. But then the fun stuff started. Jungle Jane came on stage, Shaun the sheep started DJing and a table full of glowing plasticine sprung up. Her eyes nearly popped out of her head.
There is music, obviously, and lots of inflateable toys that frequently get smashed into your face (but its okay, because kids), but there are loads of activities too. Ball pits, soft play, temporary tattoos – Amelie had a Neon Olaf on her hand, which she loved, and they both made a cute little puffy paint keyring thing.
The one thing I’d say is you need to bring food. Obviously, being at Ministry of sound they aren’t really equipped for catering to the masses. The food options were mainly skips and skittles. So bring a packed lunch to eat on the dance floor!
Thank you so much to Carousel PR for inviting us along to this fab event.
