Three-hour, family-friendly music event returns just in time to put hardworking mums’ feet, firmly on the dance floor.
If you are one of many wondering ‘What do I get mum for Mother’s Day, this year?’, look no further!
How about three hours on a Saturday afternoon to let her hair down, on the dance floor, surrounded by all her friends and family? That is exactly what the family-friendly music festival, TotRockinBeats is suggesting as it returns in time to give mums, dads and kids a chance to get on down and strut their funky stuff and help answer that very question.
The award-nominated music event takes place at the St Paul’s Art Centre, in Worthing, the day before Mother’s Day, on Saturday 25th March, between 3 -6 pm.
TotRockinBeats launched last year and has seen three sell-out events take place. They include, the now legendary New Year’s Eve party at the Assembly Hall, that saw over a 1,000 people see in the new year at 6 pm to the sounds of a Wurlitzer Organ playing a David Bowie/Star Wars mash-up and the DJ skills of 97-year-old Vera Charmers.
Created by journalist, part-time revolutionary and dad of one, Dan Flanagan, the idea is to bring together the best of a summer festival and condense it into an affordable, weather and toddler proof event. The theme this time is “Mother-Funkin” with its focus on some serious “mum-dancing” being helped by a “mum and kids DJ crew” battle, a pop-up massage clinic refreshing tired dancing feet (Cannot wait for this one!!) and a mass sing-along led by ex-Basement Jaxx diva ‘Corrina Joseph (amazing!).
DJs including TRB regulars DiscoScratch and Stick It On, will be joined by presenter of the popular 1BrightonFM ‘Mum’s Show’ Claire Jones-Hughes who will play a mix of old school Indie, Hip-Hop and 80’s/90’s anthems.

As with the NYE party, where a well-needed toy drive was organised in aid of homeless charity Storm House; this event is asking people to take part in a food drive in aid of the Trestle Trust to help support the Worthing Foodbank. So, if you come, why not bring some non-perishable goodies or they are especially interested in basic bathroom items (Toothbrushes/ Toothpaste/Shampoo/
