Join us for a family rave in celebration of the life and work of electronic music pioneer, Delia Derbyshire at Coventry Cathedral. Presented by Big Fish Little Fish and Deliaphonic Festival and featuring Alex Paterson (The Orb) and Taitsy (Awesome 3) WoW!, kids and parents will enjoy family time on a multi-sensory dance floor filled with ambient house music, bubbles, balloons, confetti cannons, snow foam and even a giant parachute dance!

All ages are welcome, but activities are created with under 8s in mind and all groups must include children. Supervising adults should be in a reasonable ratio to children. Adult-only groups are not permitted and ‘Babes in arms’ are free, but will still require a ticket.

Good to know

COVID cancellation protection and safety

If for any reason we need to cancel the event due to COVID you will be offered a full refund or transfer to the next event.

All BFLF staff carry out lateral flows prior to the event and we ask all attending adults to carry out a lateral flow test. If positive, contact us to be transferred to another event.

Nappy changing facilities

Changing tables and/or mats will be available. There will be no high chairs available.

Prams/buggies/general kid stuff

There is very limited storage space available, please leave prams behind if possible. Valuables (including kids) are the parent's responsibility. Prams will not be allowed on the dance floor. Slings are encouraged and are cool!

SEND Ravers

Everyone is welcome on the dancefloor! If you, or your child, has any additional requirements, please get in touch. We have a range of measures that can help make your visit as comfortable as possible. Email [email protected] for more info.

What’s the refund policy?

There is a no refund policy. If you are unable to attend you may sell your tickets to someone else. If well in advance of a sold-out event please email [email protected] so we can try and match you with someone on the waiting list.

Safety

This is a family event. All parties should include children with a reasonable ratio of supervising adults.

  • Adults remain responsible for their children at all times.
  • Adult-only groups are not admitted. A max of 3 children per adult in a family.
  • The event will be busy. The dancefloor is for adults and children to dance together.
  • Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating.
  • Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance.

Large Groups

If attending as a large party please ensure one adult to two children minimum. We will refuse entry to groups where there is inadequate supervision. If there are more than 3 adults per child in your group please email [email protected] for pre-approval before buying tickets.

Each member of your group must have a ticket and pre-walking infants are free (but ticketed). Please purchase bear in mind the age your child will be at the time the event will take place. It will cost more on the door (if tickets are available).

Sound Level

The music level is set and monitored throughout to abide by WHO guidelines. Though quieter than at adult events, it is still loud enough to feel like you are at a club. Most parents do not use ear defenders on their children but if yours are particularly sensitive to noise or if you want them to nap then you might want to consider it.

Photography/Marketing

We may photograph or film small parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes

When you purchase a ticket through Eventbrite you will automatically get added to our mailing list so that we can send you any important event information as well as future events. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Just a reminder...

Please be aware that BFLF is designed to provide a family-friendly, authentic club experience and is not a traditional children’s party or disco. There will be no kid's music, games, or DJ shout outs. The effect is to give families unity on the dancefloor – dancing together. DJs will be announced in advance of each party via Twitter and Facebook but may be subject to unavoidable change.

Please email Sophie at [email protected], if you have any questions.

Deliaphonic is a 4-day festival to celebrate the sounds and legacy of Delia Derbyshire. Now in its fourth year, the festival will once again take place in her hometown of Coventry, with events scheduled at Coventry Cathedral & The Tin Music and Arts. 

 

Access information

Coventry Cathedral is in Coventry city centre – 1.1 kilometres from Coventry train station and about 100 metres from Pool Meadow bus station.

The main entrance to the Cathedral is on Priory Street opposite Coventry University or St Michael’s Avenue from the City Centre. The postcode is CV1 5FB.

Parking

There is limited disabled parking (next to the Chapel of Unity on St Michael’s Avenue). There are two Blue Badge parking bays on Bayley Lane.

Drop Off Point: There is a drop off point on Priory Street, just in front of the steps and ramp leading up to the entrance for the new Cathedral, where there is no kerb.

The nearest public car parks to the Cathedral are 300 metres away at Cox Street CV1 5GA (short stay), Salt Lane CV1 2GY or Lower Ford Street CV1 5PS (long stay).

The main road outside the Cathedral (Priory Street) has a wide pavement. On the other side of the Cathedral, near the church of Holy Trinity, in Cuckoo Lane and Bayley Lane, there are many cobbled pathways and limited dropped kerbs.

Accessing The Cathedral

When you arrive at the new Cathedral from Priory Street, access is via seven steps to a landing and then a further thirteen steps. There are hand rails on either side.

Alternatively, there is a ramp leading around Coventry Cathedral Ruins up to the covered area between the two buildings.

To enter Coventry Cathedral there are two glass doors, measuring 90cm wide with 103cm between them, with level access.

Inside the Cathedral

There is a model of the Cathedral available to touch. This will be located in the main body of the Cathedral.

Please note that some areas of the Coventry Cathedral can only be reached via steps and so are not accessible to those using wheelchairs. The performance doesn’t require you to use these spaces.

Seating

The Cathedral seating can be quite uncomfortable. You may want to bring a cushion along with you to make yourself more comfortable.

All of the seats are removable, so if you are accessing the space in a wheelchair, you are welcome to sit wherever you like.

Personal Assistant Tickets

For anyone not able to attend the event on their own we offer a complimentary essential companion/personal assistant ticket. To request a ticket please email [email protected]uk.

Toilets

There is an accessible toilet available at the Cathedral which can be found on the rear left hand side of the main space. There is a ramp to access this.

If you would benefit from being seated close to the toilet please let us know in advance and we will reserve space for you.
