They might only be small, but theses toddlers know how to strut their stuff on the dance floor.

The recently opened Rabbit Hole cafe in Leytonstone Road, Stratford, played host to the adorable boogie on Saturday, October 18, with an award for the best dressed and a prize raffle for mums and dads.

As these snaps show, nobody puts baby in the corner when it comes to a Halloween-themed disco.

Rabbit Hole owner Nicci Yarnold said it was a “really good” event and that she had been inundated with families telling her how much they had enjoyed themselves and asking her when the next one would be. “It’s great to see it still supports the community and makes people happy,” she added.

But, it could be the last under-threes disco at the community cafe with the business facing an uncertain future over a lack of funding.

Nicci said: “ We are in a bit of a crisis at the Rabbit Hole so I can’t promise another disco even though it would be great too as we are improving month by month with loads of regular members.

“It’s a hard ask to keep it going being by myself working 70 hours a week as a sole-trader with nothing really left to give, which is a shame as it’s such a great place for the families of the community.”
