Following the success of our pilot year, we are hugely pleased to announce that the popular ‘Disco Dadz’ project will be re-launching this Autumn at the Barton Bash on Saturday 30th September 2017.


‘Disco Dadz’ is a fun disco and dance session for dads & their children (11 yrs & under). Mums are allowed too!

The monthly sessions will take place at Barton Neighbourhood Centre and include a professional DJ and dance tutor, disco lights, party games, prizes, face-painting, refreshments, social time and more. All this for just £1 per family!

The pilot project was a huge hit amongst local families, and we are thrilled that we have the funding to be able to re-launch it this Autumn! One dad said “I would definitely recommend Disco Dadz to other dads, after all is not often you get the chance jump about with your children with pumped up music in a controlled and relaxed environment…The atmosphere was proper disco-like.”

Autumn / Winter 2017 dates are: Saturdays 7 October, 4 November & 9 December (Christmas Special!) – All sessions run from 10-12pm.

Project manager Rachel Gildea is keen to get more families involved this year: ‘I would encourage everyone to come along: mums, dads, carers, aunties, uncles, grandparents. It is aimed at dads but most importantly it is for everyone. We always welcome new families to come along’. The unique project provides a fun, inclusive and creative space for adults and children alike. Rachel adds ‘It’s a great family activity, especially in the cold winter months – we have to keep dancing and laughing – and being at ‘Disco Dadz’ is just the medicine for that!’
