REVIEW: Big Fish Little Fish – Halloween Special

The Toddle About team were lucky enough to attend the Big Fish Little Fish Halloween special at Leamington Assembly on 29 October.

If you haven’t heard of the Big Fish Little Fish event, it is designed for people who love dance music and to rave, and crazily enough, their children too!

It is a family event with lots for children to do, including crafts, bubbles and a glitter tattoo station amongst other things. Mostly though, it is about all the old school music that you used to enjoy and the chance for your children to enjoy it too!!

We had attended the Spring event that was held earlier this year, so had a good idea of what to expect and were subsequently very excited to see how these innovative events would be transformed to capture the Halloween spirit!

Upon arriving at the Assembly, we were delighted to see that all the things so necessary to a rave were there. – Brilliant lighting, a good selection of music, balloons and bubbles and of course, the craft table that my son had been looking forward to since the last time we attended this event.

The dance floor was full of families and children who all seemed to be having a wonderful time and the stage was decorated perfectly to capture the Halloween theme of the event. – The families attending had also dressed accordingly with a mix of Halloween Fancy dress and rave clothes, some combining the two!

Huge balloons had also been thrown into the crowd and my son and his friend loved trying to punch them up into the air as they fell, in true rave style!

The music was just what you’d expect, but not too loud (though enough to reminisce about evenings spent dancing) or with any sort of language you would prefer your child not to hear. The event organisers also made it very clear that no strobe lighting would be used, but with all the bubbles, glitter and brilliant lighting, it was barely noticeable that it wasn’t there!

The craft table was, as ever, a hit and everything for there for children to make their own spooky rave headwear!

This was a brilliant way to celebrate Halloween, albeit slightly differently to how we would do normally and with the craft table, tuck shop, brilliant music and excellent décor, we can’t wait for the next event!
