What is Sweet Silent Disco?
Silent Discos are a unique and immersive experience, where all participants wear a wireless headset and listen to a custom playlist of music whilst being able to interact with the facilitator. They are great as a twist on a yoga class, a fun party idea, team building session or for an activity to run with older people of those with disabilities.
SRF are running Silent Disco sessions across the South West in a range of different locations, from schools to residential homes and day care facilities.
Watch the video above to see how a Silent Disco session is delivered.
Over the last few months we have delivered a number of sessions in care homes and day centres - each participant is given a set of headphones to wear, and all types of music, from Elvis to Frank Sinatra with a bit of Taylor Swift thrown in, is played. The effects are apparent immediately, as participants are able to reconnect with fond memories from their past. Using props from feather boas to glow sticks, the whole room soon becomes filled with people dancing, tapping their feet, or swaying along to the sounds they hear.
A silent disco usually invokes images of twenty-somethings raving to hard-core techno at a festival, but now dementia patients are donning the headphones and we’re seeing great success. Patients are reaping huge mental benefits; agitation and frustration are common among those with dementia, but after a session at the silent disco, patients feel far more settled and behavioural issues are reduced for the rest of the day. The concept has been a huge hit with patients and staff.
Mark has been delivering silent disco sessions across Weston, Clevedon, Bristol, Gloucester, Taunton and Exeter.
