A Penicuik woman is bringing her dance event for all the family to Vogrie Country Park next Saturday as part of the Woodland Dance Project.

Kirstie Wilson and her husband started their Big Fish Little Fish events in 2016 and will hold a ‘woodland creatures’ themed event in a big tent from 12-2.30pm on September 30, complete with a sensory dance floor and bubble machine. She said: “I’m really excited, we wanted to get on board when we heard about the dance project there in April. They were really up for it. We are just hoping to provide a real festival experience for families. We will have proper club DJs, with music always played at a monitored safe level.

“The music is dedicated to the adults of the clubbing generation who are parents now.

“It’s a brilliant that children can see their parents having fun which I think makes a massive difference, instead of parens just sitting having a coffee at the soft play.

“You see the kids enjoying themselves more when they see their parents having fun, it’s really nice to watch.

“It’s a brilliant opportunity for parents and children to bond.

“We just want to see people coming out and enjoying a completely different event.”

Tickets available from www.eventbrite.co.uk, £6 for kids and £8 for adults.
