Festive family fun for the post-rave generation of parents. Helping parents be responsibly irresponsible since 2013.

We’re excited to be bringing our festive rave back to Exeter! We’ll be bringing the Yuletide vibes, in a rave style, to Exeter Phoenix and we ho-ho-hope you’ll join us!

Headliner Alex Paterson (The Orb) plus resident DJs Little My & High Eight play (grown up) dance music on the multi-sensory dancefloor with glitter cannons, bubbles and giant parachute dance.

Craft tables (run by Jenny from The Creation Station Devon Newton Abbot) with giant colouring mural, themed crafts and playdoh table. Play area with tents and tunnels and baby chillout space with mats and small ballpool.

Upstairs in the Voodoo Lounge, we’ll have the amazing Rave Morris – high energy, fun, and thoroughly awesome morris dancing to rave music – soundtracked the equally brilliant DJ Hatchett! Come and marvel at their skills, and get involved yourself – kids and adults alike!

Licensed bar, free transfer tattoos and glowsticks, plus freebie post-rave treats from Portlebay Popcorn at the end.

Theme: “Jingle Bell ball” – Optional (but encouraged) Fancy Dress. Think all things Yuletide!
