The night will allow children to meet their favourite characters including  Spider-Man, Elsa from Frozen, and Chase from Paw Patrol.

A bouncy castle, a tuck shop, and face painters will be at the festival to keep children of all ages entertained. 

Mini Ravers’ club nights for children have toured across ten cities in the UK, including Southampton and Brighton, after being set up by Express FM DJ Liam Howes in 2017.

The Pompey Live host said: ‘Me and my friend Liam Muns had the idea after we became dad’s about two and a half years ago. 

‘We had both DJ at clubs that did nights for under-18s, and we thought why not offer something for parents with younger kids. 

‘The idea is for parents to come and dance with their kids.’

Adults can also attend Mini Raver events, which have a no-alchohol policy.
