Raver Tots

Raver Tots comes to Teeside


Raver Tots is a family rave where kids and grownups can hit the dance floor and let off some steam together! There is tons kids fun including face painting, UV lights, bubbles, balloons, confetti and giant parachutes in a rave style atmosphere with some of the UK’s top DJ’s including residents Artful Dodger, Brandon Block, Slipmatt & Nicky Blackmarket. Some events attract up to 1500 people a time!

With over 9 million views on their videos in the last few months and features on BBC News, Daily Mail & Lad Bible, Raver Tots is widely recognised as the UK’s most popular family event with thousands of people in attendance every week around the nation.

Founded by club promoter Mike Pickets, the brains behind the resurrection of the legendary Fusion raves five years ago, the events will see people take in a nostalgia trip of great tunes, iconic 90s dance venues and ball ponds. 

Mike is hoping to provide a way for kids with ADHD, which he himself lives with, to work off some energy in a fun-filled and safe environment: to take the ‘peace, love, unity, and respect’ ethos of the rave scene and translate it into positive attitudes towards mental health. A substantial donation will be made to ADDISS, a leading charity for people with ADHD, while £1 of every ticket will also go to the National Autistic Society.

Speaking of the events, Pickets said: 

Since my early childhood I’ve been passionate about rave music, and setting up Raver Tots has given us the opportunity to use the rave scene as a platform to create awareness and raise money for Autism and ADHD. I suffered with ADHD as a child, and found there was very little help or understanding for what I was going through.

We launched Raver Tots to try and combine great music and a sense of fun with an atmosphere of inclusivity, and we were so blown away by the response to our warm-up event that we’ve decided to grow Raver Tots nationally.

So grab your young’uns and head on down for a combination of good times, great causes, and classic tunes – they’ll be heading your way soon!
