‘Such fun!’ was the most used quote at the end of our silent disco; ‘When’s the next one?’ was the next.
Non-stop dancing, laughter and strained singing … yes, that’s what a silent disco is all about! Everyone was boogying … and I mean everyone – from the volunteers in the foyer, the bar staff and each and every person who attended! There’s something about dancing with headphones on that brings you back to your youth, that keeps those inhibitions away, that makes you sing at the top of your voice and that makes you dance like no-one is watching.
The engines in the London Museum of Water and Steam looked magical in the lights, giving the atmosphere a haunting, awe-inspiring quality. Thank you to Knight Sounds and Vision for their help with the transformation.
Thank you to Birdie catering and the fabulous, fabulous staff at the museum, especially Christina and Joanna, who helped plan the event.
A massoff thank you goes to all the volunteers who worked all night to ensure everyone had fun, and to Molly Livermore, our official photographer.
But the biggest thank you must go to the DJs – Stu, Matt, Rosie and DJ Strawberry Delight – who gave their time freely and kept the joint jumping.
The lovely Ruth won £50 in our Money Share Game. ‘That’s made my week’, she said.
A fabulous £2,500 was raised for Breathing Matters which will go towards important research into pulmonary fibrosis and infection at UCL Respiratory.
Watch out for next Spring’s date if you want to join in the fun!
