The superhero-themed rave promises to be as much fun for adults as for children with a multi sensory dance floor and glitter cannons.

Family rave company Big Fish Little Fish use DJs who honed their skills back in the 90s who will be playing breakbeat, hardcore and jungle music.

Marian Anderson, marketing and audience development officer for Made In Corby, said: “It’s as much fun for the adults as it is for the kids.

Parents and children can join in the fun

“We’ll have the bar open for beers, sweets and crisps. It’s a chance for parents to relax and relive their youths.

“It’s pretty riotous with big parachutes, children on parents’ shoulders. The whole of the bottom of the theatre is turned into a dancefloor.”

Playing for two sessions will be DJ SS and DJ Glamour playing ‘grown-up’ dance music, alongside crafts, multi-sensory dance floor with glitter cannons and giant balloons, baby chill out space, tents and tunnels play area, and a colouring mural. People are being encouraged to wear fancy dress.

Ravers must be parents accompanying children who are under eight.
