Festive Silent Disco Walking Tour

Organiser: Friends of Anchor

Where: Christmas Village Aberdeen

Description:  IT’S CHRISTMAAAAAAAAS – and what better way to get in the festive mood, than to sing and dance through the Christmas Village with the city’s first festive silent disco walking tour!

This winter, Friends of ANCHOR is the chosen charity of the Christmas Village.

Every weekend, we will be bringing back the old fashioned tradition of carol singing… with a modern twist!

The 30-minute silent disco adventure tour will take place every hour, on the hour, on Fridays from 5pm to 9pm inclusive, Saturdays 2pm to 8pm inclusive and Sundays 1pm to 5pm inclusive.

Gather together your family, friends or workmates and grab one of our headsets to rock around every Christmas tree! Celebrating the festivities in style, you’ll join your tour guide from the famous Silent Adventures – the team who brought you this year’s Edinburgh Fringe silent disco.

Let the tempo build with a half hour of hand-picked festive tunes to get you in the spirit as you dance your way around the Christmas village and the winter wonderland of the Marischal College quad and Square.*

With all profits going directly to Friends of ANCHOR as a local charity, your festive party will also benefit a great cause.

Running from Friday 22nd November to Sunday 22nd December.

Tickets will be available at Aberdeen Christmas Village or can be pre-booked by emailing info@friendsofanchor.org. Email pre-booking will close each Thursday at 12pm for the coming weekend. From then, tickets will be available to purchase on the day, from the Christmas Village bar area.

Ticket prices are, £10 per adult, £7.50 per child (aged 5-12) or £25 for a family of four (two adults and two children).

Unfortunately we cannot control the North-east weather and regret that refunds will not be available if the event is cancelled due to poor weather. If this does happen, your generosity will be treated as a kind donation to the charity.

Please note this attraction is recommended for children over the age of five. Buggies and pushchairs will not be permitted. Babes in arms are welcome.

*access to Marischal Quad only during the venue’s opening hours

We hope to see you there!
