This April Fools Day, Junior Jungle, a proper kids/family jungle rave, is coming to Bristol Beacon.


April Fools Day is on the way – and what better way to act a fool than to get involved with some old-skool jungle? However, if you’ve got kids, it can be hard to find the time or the chance to get stuck in to a proper rave; enter, Junior Jungle.


Junior Jungle is much what it sounds like – a family rave for both adults and kids to enjoy. Hosted by MC Rocky Patch – billed as the “World’s Funniest MC” – and DJ Nick Terrific, Junior Jungle is bringing genuine Jungle tunes in an accessible daytime timeslot for the whole family.

The duo created Junior Jungle as an antidote to the dull ‘baby raves’ they had seen going around, founding JJ with three pillars: No pop, No Disney, just proper tunes and real raving for kids and adults together – and adults will be expected to dance!


DJ Nick will be mixing together the finest cuts of DnB and Jungle (carefully vetted for age-appropriate content) – and Rocky Patch will lead the energy to get the room moving! There’ll be dance-offs and battles, uplifting energy – and dancing for both kids and adults.

If you think Junior Jungle sounds like your kind of party, good news – it can be! Junior Jungle also provide private parties for birthdays, weddings – and even wakes, according to their website. Additionally, private party hire comes with the option of hiring Hurtle, a 1974 fire engine with a built-in sound system and a roof-mounted DJ booth.


Junior Jungle is coming to the newly-refurbished Bristol Beacon, in Lantern Hall, on Monday 1st April, with doors opening from 13:30. For tickets, head to the Beacon's website. To get an idea of how the new venue is looking, check out our tour article here.
