Rev­ellers to rock around Christ­mas tree for char­ity

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A fes­tive silent disco tour is com­ing to Aberdeen as part of this year’s win­ter fes­ti­val.

Or­gan­is­ers Aberdeen In­spired have teamed up with Friends of An­chor to in­tro­duce new el­e­ments to the Christ­mas vil­lage and raise money for the An­chored To­gether ap­peal.

Now rev­ellers are be­ing en­cour­aged to rock around the Christ­mas tree, but with a twist, when the vil­lage opens on Novem­ber 21.

Led by a tour guide, visi­tors will wear head­sets play­ing fes­tive favourites to dance their way around the Christ­mas vil­lage and Marischal Col­lege Quad.

Adrian Wat­son, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Aberdeen In­spired, said: “This is the first time a silent disco has been in­tro­duced and we are sure it will be hugely pop­u­lar. It will cer­tainly be a unique way to get into the sea­sonal spirit and we can’t wait to see peo­ple tak­ing part.”

Jim Milne, chair­man of cancer char­ity Friends of An­chor, said: “With the disco tours hap­pen­ing ev­ery week­end, we hope lots of you will join us.”
