Hedfone Party Silent Disco hire - this has got to be one of the most fun parties we have witnessed here. Truly hilarious. All the guests on the dancfloor wearing headsets with various channels of music playing into them. Everyone howling with laughter and doing different dance moves to different changels of music. The real bonus of this option is that it is very multi generational. We don't see the older generation rushing for the drawing room in the house when the party starts to escape the noise. On the contrary we often see the older family members popping the headphones on and having a bop! This really holds the party together. That said the headphones have a big range so we have found people dancing down by the river and out on the lawn as well!
