Mini partygoers can take to the dancefloor this month at a family friendly rave in Ipswich.

The event, which is being hosted by Raver Tots, will take place at Revolution on Saturday, June 23.

Parents and children will have the chance to let loose in a fun, safe and unique environment.

Mini ravers can expect glow sticks, UV face painting, bubbles, balloons, confetti, giant parachutes, ball ponds, and more.

Parents will be relieved to hear that you won’t be dancing along to children’s songs but to tunes by some of the UK’s best DJs.
