The average age of revellers enjoying the Peterborough nightlife is about to get much lower in the new year.

But instead of school-goers trying to sneak past bouncers to party into the early hours, it will be infants and tiny tots who tear up the dancefloor at city nightclub Halo.

And joining them will be their parents who can show off their best mum or dad dancing without having to worry about how much they might be embarrassing their children.

It might be the middle of the day instead of the late evening, and milk might be the drink of choice rather than sambuca, but parents looking to recapture their wild youth will not want to pass up this chance to visit a nightclub once again without worrying that they are out of place next to the intoxicated youth of today.

So if your New Year’s resolution is to get out and dance more then Halo is the place to be on January 2 for the Boogaloo Baby Rave and Kids Rave.

And like an evening at nightclub Flares all the old classics will be playing, with the club DJ bringing out top hits from the 70s all the way to the present day.

But if all the dancing tires out your children and they need a rest, there will also be a chill-out zone, arts and crafts activities, a full spread of kid-friendly snacks and juice boxes, games and competitions and giveaways and prizes,

And for the Boogaloo Kids Rave, there will also be an expert dance instructor getting the youngsters to learn some of the freshest dance moves.

The raves follow on from the previous Baby Loves Disco and Pop Lock-In events in April as part of the Music Takeover by Peterborough Presents. And the team has now teamed up with Halo and creative arts organisation Cyan Maiden to produce another family-friendly afternoon of entertainment.

Vikki Harold of Cyan Maiden said: “Our first event we put on in April was an immense amount of fun, and everyone seemed to love it. We’ve been like big kids ourselves shopping for toys and planning the fancy dress box and ordering inflatable instruments.”

The Boogaloo Baby Rave is aimed at babies and young children under six, while the Boogaloo Kids Rave is aimed at primary school children.

Josie Hickin, the Peterborough Presents programme manager, said the age guidelines are only a suggestion. She added: “We know some families will have children both under and over six-years-old and we wouldn’t want to split the family up, so children of all ages are welcome at either event.”

The Baby Rave is from noon until 2pm and the Kids Rave is from 3 until 5pm.

Under 1s go free, but tickets for everyone else are £5 on top of a booking fee. Tickets can be reserved on 01733 864532 or bought at www.eventbrite.co.uk/d/united-kingdom--peterborough/boogaloo/.
