Raver Tots Festival – Bank Holiday Monday 27th May 2019 – Garon Park, Southend

Raver Tots is the UK’s biggest family rave and festival brand where kids and grownups can hit the dance floor and rave together! There are never ending moments to engage kids and parents and above all, huge dance spaces where you can hear the UK’s biggest DJ’s playing the best in all forms of dance music.

We would love to go BUT seeing as baby Kev is due 1st June, it may not be wise to hit a rave at 40 weeks pregnant! Tickets are available here.
