After total sell-out runs 6 YEARS RUNNING at Fringe 2009 / 2010 / 2011 / 2012  / 2013 and 2014, BLD returns to the festival once more!

BLD is back to transform Edinburgh’s coolest nightspot for some more family day-clubbing. Superstar DJs mix chart floor-fillers with nostalgic pop classics from the years before parenthood struck – for parents with babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to enjoy together.

*NEW FOR 2015* Influence the DJ via our live twitter wall… tweet your beats to @BLDUK.

Facepainting, dress-up, photo-booth, crafts, healthy snacks, juice (kids’ sandwich platters at midday) all included in the price, plus dance floor giveaways, chill-out zone and much more. With private karaoke and a licensed bar, it won’t just be the little ones going gaga!…

These events are advertised as suitable for 0-5s. Respectful older siblings are welcome as always (here at BLD we are all about the whole family partying together!) but, as in 2014, we anticipate the attendance overall to be younger than in previous years.

For anyone who particularly enjoyed our sessions for 0-3s at the 2013 Fringe, we would encourage you to book the last session of the run, on Monday 31st August (which is also £1 cheaper due to being off peak). As this is the only event we are running this year on a weekday and it is during school term time in Scotland, we anticipate these 2 sessions being attended by predominantly under 3s and will programme it accordingly.


Also at Edinburgh Fringe: BLD Presents Pop Lock-in!

Sell-out 2014. Let the kids be the stars of this year’s Fringe! Pop Lock-in returns to open Edinburgh’s coolest nightclub to primary school age kids. DJs spin non-stop chart tunes while our street dance instructor gets the dancefloor popping and locking.

Future superstars can dress up, make jewellery, get glitter tattoos, nails painted, hair streaked before testing their skills at open mic karaoke, Mario Kart racing or posing in our photo booth. All included in entry!

Top this off with free mocktails and cupcakes, and junior clubbers will feel like true VIPs!



Licensed bar (and free entry) for accompanying parents at all Pop Lock-in events.

Please note this is not a drop-off class – children must have a parent or carer responsible for them remaining within the event throughout, although there are no specific restrictions on numbers of children per adult.
