Why not consider these alternatives:
- A "silent disco" is new technlogy where all the
dancers wear a light-weigh headset and the DJ plays music using a transmitter,
not loudspeakers. We don't have a reccommended supplier as yet but if you put
the term "silent disco" into a search engine you will find plenty of firms
offering this. A silent disco can be held at the museum on any day of the week
until 2300. Our charges are lower than for normal disco events.
- A disco on a boat. The Prince Regent is a luxury
charter boat that can take you to Paddington along the Regent's Canal, on any
day of the week, and a disco can be held on board for up to 80 guests maximum.
The Prince Regent can depart from the museum at 2100 or earlier (not later) to
arrive at Paddington by 2330 at the latest. The museum's mooring can only be
used in connection with a booking of the museum. So for example you could book
the museum for a reception, followed by a dinner ending by 2100 at which time
some or all of the guests embark for a disco cruise, possibly leaving others to
relax in the museum for a little while longer. Guests wishing to return to
King's Cross after the cruise can easily do so by Underground or bus route
- A late-night elsewhere You can have your wedding
reception at the museum, including the meal, the speeches and perhaps dancing
until 2300, and then those guests who wish to have a late night can go on to
another nearby venue where you can dance the night away. Ask us to suggest
Please contact us to ask about availability of dates for events that
