Tynemouth 2024, Event Information 

Headphones

A refundable £10 CASH security deposit will be taken for EACH silent disco headset. On safe return of the headset at the end of the night you will get your £10 back. £10 notes would be much appreciated. 

 

Music/lighting

All headsets have individual volume controls for your comfort. 

Strobe lighting will not be used during the event.

 

Card/Cash

Please bring cash for your headphone deposit/s. You can pay with cash or card at the bar. 

 

Tickets

Please download your tickets onto your phone or print them out before arriving on the beach. Phone reception is patchy on the sand. 

 

Alcohol/drugs and vaping/smoking 

Only drinks bought at the event are to be consumed. (Drinking water available from the bar.)

Drugs are strictly prohibited.

 

We understand you may wish to vape or smoke at the event and so we have provided buckets for ‘tab ends’. Please be mindful of others’ space when smoking/vaping. (Smoking is prohibited in and around the marquee areas)

 

Bag Checks

Our security team will be performing bag checks on entrance.

 

WEATHER

Of course we are hoping for fine weather but, being an outdoor event, it is open to the elements. The ‘show will go on’ in wet weather and will only be stopped if the weather compromises safety.

 

Even in good weather the temperature can drop later into the evening.

 

Please come prepared (wet weather gear AND sunscreen recommended, and think ‘practical’).

 

Seating

There will be no seating available at the events. You’ll be pleased to know the sand is nice and soft! Feel free to bring your own chairs however we would ask that these are placed around the edge, not ‘the dancefloor’.

Entrance requirements

As per our Terms and Conditions, the evening events are strictly over 18’s. Anyone who is deemed to be intoxicated or ‘under the influence’ will be denied entry. We will be operating a ‘Think 25’ policy, please do not be offended if security ask you for ID to prove you are over 18. 

 

Accessibility 

We want everyone to be able to have fun at our events so we will do everything we can to make them accessible. Please get in touch with us to discuss your specific needs.

 

Toilets

Portaloos will be available for the duration. Please leave them how you would like to find them! 

 

First aid

We are not expecting any particular risks to our silent disco dancers however we understand that accidents can happen. For this reason, we have a dedicated First Aid team on hand throughout the event. Please alert us as soon as possible if you sustain an injury or need assistance. 

 

Safer spaces 

Silent Disco on the Beach is a joyous, welcoming event where everyone should be given a safe space to enjoy themselves. If you are troubled by unwanted attention or someone else’s behaviour please speak to a member of the bar staff or security team. If you feel unsafe and unable to say so openly just ask for Angela and we’ll find a place for you to talk/arrange a route for you.

 

Water safety

King Edward’s Bay is a beautiful place but remember the sea is a formidable force. 

Alcohol does not make you Tom Daley so we kindly ask that you refrain from swimming whilst at the event, or under the influence of alcohol. 

 

COVID

To keep everyone safe we kindly request that you do not attend if displaying symptoms of covid. 

 

Food

We have a great range of soft and alcoholic drinks available but will not be offering any food at the event. Please make sure you are fuelled for dancing before you come! 

 

You may bring a picnic with you to consume during the event, but liquid sustenance will have to be left at the door and drinks purchased from the bar. 

 

Cloakroom/size of bag

We’re on a beach and don’t have a cloakroom. Please keep this in mind when deciding what to bring with you.

 

Transport/travel/parking

King Edward’s Bay beach is within easy reach of the metro and buses. The last metro to Monument (via Byker) leaves at 23:41, the last one to Manors at 00:11. Please check for your specific journey before dropping down on to the beach as the phone reception is patchy. 

There is a taxi rank in Front Street; the closest pick up points for pre-booked taxis are The Gibraltar Pub or Woods cafe. 

For those travelling by car parking is available on Front Street and the headland. 

 

Animals

Animals are strictly prohibited. If you require a service dog to enable you to access our event please let us know by messaging tickets@awesomesilentdiscos.co.uk
