Takeover at Watford Museum
Watford Museum is hosting its very own silent disco on Friday 28 October, from 6pm-10pm, in collaboration with the LP café and Pope’s Yard Brewery.
It’s part of the exciting Museums at Night UK-wide festival, produced by Culture24, an arts charity which aims to give British culture more exposure. It’s a social experience where visitors become a part of the exhibition, and take over the museum at night.
Everyone will be given their very own wireless headphones, so they can switch between the two different music channels as the mood takes them. Drinks will be served by Watford’s local micro-brewery Pope’s Yard, and there will be a pop-up café from the town’s independent coffee shop and music specialists, the LP Café.
It will be a fun experience, with Watford’s very own DJs Firepony and Coffee Grind taking over the decks all night, spinning a fusion of soul and good vibes. DJs Firepony and Coffee Grind are popular at the LP Café and other venues in Watford, and are sure to get everyone moving on the dance floor.
Local alternative hip-hop artists, Charles Dixon and Tom Jordan will also make an appearance, rapping on stage and creating an electric atmosphere at the museum.
Councillor Karen Collett, Portfolio Holder for Community said: ‘Most people haven’t been to a museum at night, so the silent disco gives people a chance to explore Watford Museum in a new and exciting way. The Museums at Night festival is such a fun and creative idea – it has brought new audiences to museums around the country. We really want to encourage residents and visitors to make the most of this chance. After all, it’s not every day you get to party in a museum at night time!’
