There’s going to be a silent disco in Mapperley



There’s going to be a silent disco in Mapperley

Unique event being held to raise funds to save the Old Bowling Green from developers

Revellers can head over to Mapperley next month for a party which will see DJs playing a selection of the hottest indie, dance, rave, rock and reggae tracks around.

But stand down, noise police: this party will rock…in silence.

Haywood Road Community Centre is to host its first silent disco on Friday, September 15 under a marquee on the Old Bowling Green.

A silent disco is an event where people dance to music listened to on wireless headphones.

Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter and picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the revellers.

There will be at least two DJ sets being played at the same time, so if you fancy a change of tune, you flick a switch on your headphones and listen to an alternative set.

All proceeds raised will go towards a campaign being run by residents to save the Old Bowling Green from housing developers.

A spokesperson for the Haywood Road Community Centre said: “ If you’ve never been to one of these events before you’re in for a real treat and unique experience.

You can tell which set people are listening to by the way they are dancing. We’ve also got a licenced bar as well as hot food so should be a cracking evening with no moaning from the neighbour.”

Tickets are £8 (Early Bird) or £10 on the door and can be bought here
