Summer’s over so it must be Christmas, right? There’s something about the nights drawing in and the chill in the air that gets the Christmas juices flowing. You’ll soon be in your thick woolly jumpers planning the food and presents for the big day. However, while the traditional festivities of family time, present giving and eating lots of rich food is wonderful… There’s nothing better than a good ol’ Christmas party.
We may be a little biased, but we think that silent disco Christmas parties are the pinnacle of festive celebrations. So, we’ve pulled together a guide that will tell you exactly what you need to plan a Christmas silent disco party. We’ve also included some ideas for fun silent disco Christmas party variations, some of which you might not be expecting…
What equipment will you need for a Christmas silent disco party?
We’re going to talk about a variety of silent disco events that you can host for your upcoming Christmas party. Even though each event would be held in a different location, sometimes inside, sometimes outside, the equipment needed is the same.
- 3 x radio transmitters
- 3 x power cables
- 3 x 3.5mm aux cable
- LED 3 Channel Silent disco headphones
Then, you will need to provide up to three music streaming devices (mobile phones, laptops, MP3 players or DJ equipment) and a power source. If you’re planning to host a silent disco walking tour or something that requires you to be on the move, you will need our battery-operated transmitters.
Christmas silent disco party ideas
Silent disco equipment can be used for much more than just traditional disco events. Silent discos are a fantastic Christmas party idea but they are not everybody’s cup of tea. So, we’ve created a versatile list of silent disco Christmas party ideas to give you some alternatives to think about when you’re planning a party for your family, friends or colleagues this festive season.
Silent disco ice skating
We get it, sometimes the last place you want to host a party is at home or in the office. So, for those of you who want to get outside and combine silent disco fun with one of everybody’s favourite Christmas pastimes, why not try silent disco ice skating?
A silent disco ice skating party is perfect for families, groups of friends and work parties. Everyone can grab some headphones, pull on their skates and enjoy a party on the ice. Just like with a regular silent disco you will have the choice of three music channels so you can enjoy the music you love. Just be careful not to throw too many wild dance moves as skates have a little less friction than your regular dancing shoes.
There are a bunch of venues around the UK that host silent disco ice skating events that you can book for a relatively low cost. If you’re planning a larger party, like a Christmas work party, there’s also the option to book out an ice rink and hire silent disco equipment yourselves.
Christmas-themed silent disco
You can’t go wrong with hosting a regular silent disco with a Christmas twist. You will have three music channels to play with. So, we suggest having one channel (at least!) dedicated solely to Christmas songs. If you’re looking for more festive spirit, you could suggest a Christmas dress code as well. No embarrassing Christmas jumper, no entry to the party!
The benefit of choosing a silent disco for your Christmas party is that it gives you more flexibility. You can play music to suit everybody’s tastes across the three channels and you don’t have to worry about noise restrictions when choosing a venue. So, if you’re at home, you won’t wake up the neighbours that are napping after their big lunch and you’ll have a bigger choice of venues when planning a works Christmas party.
Christmas silent disco tour
A Christmas silent disco tour is great for anyone looking to do something a little different for their Xmas party this year. Compared with the traditional disco events, Silent disco tours allow you to slow down the pace a little and gives you a chance to catch up with friends and family while you explore and learn about a new location. Although, if you’re looking for party vibes on your silent disco tour, there are plenty of tour operators that will cater to your needs.
You can find Christmas-themed silent disco events in most major cities across the UK. Some popular operators include Silent Disco Walking Tours, Boogie Shoes, and Silent Adventures. Also, if you or someone you know fancies being the MC & DJ, and you know a good route, then you can hire all the equipment you need from Silent Disco Party UK and host your own silent disco walking tour.
Christmas silent cinema
Next, we are going to continue with the chilled vibes with a Christmas silent cinema. Nothing can make you feel more Christmassy than a classic Christmas film like The Polar Express, Home Alone, The Holiday, Elf! The list could go on and on.
Combining your favourite Christmas films with silent disco equipment can create a whole new experience that’s perfect for Christmas parties. You’re not confined to your living room or regular cinemas, you can go anywhere! The weather might be a bit chilly but why not find an outdoor venue where you can sit by the fire and snuggle up under a blanket while watching your favourite Xmas films?
Silent disco Christmas yoga
We promised you something a little different for your Christmas party this year. How about silent disco Christmas yoga? It’s easy to get lost in over-consumption throughout the festive period with busy schedules that see you hopping from one event to the next. However, it’s important to use your time off over the Christmas period to take care of yourself and recover from what’s probably been another hectic year.
Silent disco Christmas yoga can be the perfect way to get your friends, family and colleagues together to unwind, relax and chill before the festivities. Christmas silent disco yoga is the same as any silent disco yoga session, the only difference is that you’ll be listening to Christmas songs while you perform your downward-reindeers – sorry downward-dogs!
The Grinch’s silent disco
There’s a small portion of the population who really dislike Christmas and the idea of going to a Christmas party gives them the shivers. We all know one, there’s a grinch in every family and every workplace. The thing about Grinches is that they’re stubborn. No amount of persuading will get them to fall in love with the festive spirit, if anything, it will make them more determined to hate it…
So, if you know a grinch, why not throw them a party dedicated to them. The Grinch’s silent disco is a similar format to the Christmas silent disco, however, any mention of Christmas, presents, turkeys or Santa Claus will have you thrown out into the cold. Most importantly, there will be no Christmas songs allowed on any of your silent disco headphone channels.
It may seem drastic, but a Grinch’s silent disco might be the only way to get the grinch in your life to a party this festival period. Good luck!
