Come along to Enginuity for our first ever silent disco!
A silent disco has much in common with a regular disco or party, with one noticeable difference…there’s no music! That is until you put on a pair of headphones. Then you share in the experience of listening to up to 2 DJs playing at the same time, in the same room. But don’t worry, there is no horrible sound clash! Each pair of headphones has 2 channels chosen by a simple switch on the side of the headset, allowing you to choose your preferred choice of DJ/music.
Tickets are £12 per person. The event will run from 7pm-11pm in the Engine Shop, Coalbrookdale.
This event is suitable for people aged 18+. There will be a cash bar available throughout the night.
We’re throwing open our doors on the evening of Friday 26 October for a Halloween trick or treat event, especially for under 8s and their grownups.
On arrival, all children taking part will be given a fun activity sheet to lead them around some of the exhibits in the Victorian Town – there will be a goody bag for all children who have a go at all of the activities.
Children joining in the event can:
Dip a candle
Listen to a spooky story
Play a trick on the townsfolk
Design and colour-in a pumpkin
During the evening you will happen across Victorians in spooky costumes at the Grocers, Chemist, Post Office, Terrace, Plasterers, Printers, Candle Factory & Doctors. Do you dare knock on their doors and trick or treat?
There will be cobwebs, pumpkins and lanterns in the Townsfolk’s shops & homes but nothing too scary – this event is perfect for families looking for a less-scary alternative to Ghostly Gaslight.
Fancy dress is strongly encouraged!
Parking is on-site at Blists Hill Victorian Town only and costs £3 per car
The Coffee Shop and Fish & Chip Shop will be open during the event
We suggest wearing sensible footwear and bring a torch
Bring cash in case you want to buy anything during the event
Children aged under 2 are free of charge but need a ticket for the event
Sorry, no dogs
Please note, there will be no fireworks, pyrotechnics or sound & light effects at this event – we save that for Ghostly Gaslight the following evening.
Join us for our annual Halloween fright night on Saturday 27 October, 6pm-9pm, at Blists Hill Victorian Town.
Wander the streets, shops and houses which will be transformed into eerie places filled with ghosts, ghouls and monsters. We love seeing you all dressed up in your spooky costumes so feel free to hit the fancy dress shop before you visit!
Ticket details will be available here soon.
Spectacular family fireworks extravaganza with music will light up the night sky; wrap up warm, buy a cup of hot chocolate from the café, enjoy the smell of coal fires burning and talk to the townsfolk in their cottages, shops and other places of work as you make your way down to the Village Green for the show.
See molten iron being poured into moulds during the dramatic iron casting demonstration in the foundry.
Ticket details will be available soon.
