Following a string of excellent outings over recent months – from New Year’s parties to Mother’s Day raves – the Playhouse Project return for their latest get-together this August Bank Holiday. Put together by a team of ex-ravers and DJs who are now parents, the project is an exclusive, all-ages rave experience aimed at parents who long for a return to their clubbing years. For their latest extravaganza, families can look forward to big beats and good vibes from DJ Dave Beer, founder of legendary club night Back To Basics. Dubbed ‘King of Clubs’ by Mixmag, Beer’s night Back To Basics has helped launch the careers of some of dance music’s biggest artists, including Daft Punk, Groove Armada and Basement Jaxx. An honorary son of Leeds in tribute to his contributions to the city, Dave is also a regular at the some of the biggest UK festivals, including Glastonbury, Bestival, No.6 and Gottwood. As well as great music, attendees can look forward to free glow sticks, dancers, club lighting, visuals, bubble machines, inflatables and giant balloons, along with family-favourite Robot performer ELECTRON. In place of the chill out room, kids can take some time away from the music with craft tables, play doh areas, a book corner and face painting. Cake favourite Bakeorama will be on hand for those with a sweet-tooth alongside the venue’s own food offering throughout the day – plus, there will be a fully licensed bar for mums and dads. Tickets start at £5 for children under 12, up to £25 for a family ticket (two adults and up to three children) with free entry for babies under 2 years old.
