Silent disco at the view from the SHard
If you haven’t been to a silent disco at The View From The Shard hosted by Time Out yet, you need to. It’s first events sold out quickly and so due to the popular demand, they’ve added several new dates, one of which is this Saturday from 10pm to 2am. It’s hosted at the top of the building with views all across London, and there are 3 DJs all with independent sets so the music choice is varied. Get tickets here: Visit site.
