HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE LOVED?
Does It Feel To Be Loved? Children's Disco
We've held the HDIF Children's disco at the End Of The Road festival for the last seven years, and they've been lots and lots of fun. We play our usual mixture of indie pop and soul, and the discos are a wonderful opportunity for kids to bop around to The Smiths, Belle & Sebastian, Allo Darlin', The Ramones and more, and for their parents to bop along with them. It can often be hard to get out to club nights once you become a parent, so these discos are as much a chance for the parents to go out dancing as they are for the kids. We also want to provide an alternative to the many rave-themed kids discos that are on offer in London. If you'd rather dance to your favourite indie pop and Motown songs with your children, then we're the disco for you!
Music will be played at a reasonable level. We'll make sure that the songs aren't played too loud, but if you're worried about volume please do bring along ear defenders for your kids.
Everyone is welcome at our kids discos - children, parents and family friends - but we follow similar rules to Coram's Fields - so no admission for adults unless they are accompanied by a child.
About The Phoenix:
The venue is a wonderful basement bar with a wooden dancefloor. Entrance is via a short flight of stairs. It's three minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station.
