Museum set to host silent disco

This summer, everyone’s invited to put on their glad rags for a Silent Disco at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.

Taking place in the great halls of the stunningly lit up museum on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 July, the Silent Disco nights will feature three DJs playing hits from the 80s, 90s and 00s.

Party goers will get a wireless headset and then can choose the channel they play, so, if a song comes on that they don’t want to dance to, they can simply change the channel.

Philip Walker, head of culture and creative industries at Bristol City Council, said: “These silent disco nights will be so much fun with the added bonus that they are taking place in such a beautiful building. If you love dancing to some musical greats come along – whether on your own or with friends – you are welcome to create your own soundtrack for the night with a choice of DJs to tune into. From Queen and Madonna to Prince and Wham, there will be plenty to get you onto the dance floor.”

There is a choice of an early or late session on each of the disco nights taking place on 12 and 13 July – from 7.30pm to 10pm or from 10.30pm to 1am.

As there will be a fully stocked bar on site all night, this is an 18+ event and ID may be requested on entry.

General tickets cost £21 and VIP tickets cost £26.50, which includes advanced priority entry and a disco essential pack including a light up foam baton.
