About Us

Our Kids Social (OKS) was set up and is run by Alice, Hannah and Jo who are pioneers of unique family events providing ‘a knees up with your nippers’ at iconic venues such as Manchester Monastery, The Refuge, Victoria Baths and Camp & Furnace.

OKS represents the things we love doing with our time outside of work – the things we want to do with our children and for them to enjoy: good music, an opportunity to be creative, socialising with adults and children, making new friends and building a community. We pop up at festivals and host birthday parties and family areas at events across the Northwest.

The OKS gang on the sofa


Our big socials are centered around families having fun together and focus on great music and creativity. They are aimed at children aged 8 and under, and their families. Expect to find a combination of top DJs, a silent disco, arts and crafts, a licensed bar, sensory area, face painting, dress up and family photo frame and great cakes.

We also often collaborate with local toddler groups, circus skills and storytellers making each event truly unique.

Kids doing the limbo


Our Kids Social also pop up at festivals and events with our popular interactive silent disco and glittering wheel of chance.
Led by a DJ, our silent disco is the only one of its kind 100% designed for families with dancefloor challenges (Limbo anyone?) and a kids and adults channel everybody gets to throw some shapes to their favourite tunes!

We are always on the look out for new venues and events so please get in touch at [email protected] if you have any suggestions!


With regular collaborations in our favourite family restaurants and cafes, OKS are changing the face of family dining for the better. With a winning combination of food, fizz and our family silent disco, these events are proving popular with adults and children alike.

If you run a family friendly restaurant or cafe and are interested in us hosting an event please do get in touch [email protected].
