Silent Disco Equipment Hire
Due to popular demand 'All The Kit' invested in Silent Disco Equipment in 2011 and by 2013 we had SUCH good fun that we got another 100 sets. Just give your guests a set of headphones and the party can carry on all night with worrying about your neighbours. Here are a few commonly asked questions:
Q - Can you have different channels playing at the same time?
Answer: Yes, the kit comes with a dual transmitter so you can plug in two sound sources. For example you can two Ipods plugged in playing different music styles. Just press the power button on the headsets and it will scan to the next channel. The lights on the headset change colour so you can easily see what channel someone is listening to. The lights also flash in time with the music.
Q - How long do they last?
Answer - It depends a bit on how loud you are playing the music, but they tend to last between 4 and 6 hours.
Q - How do you charge then?
Answer - They use a USB lead - we have a special charger that will charge about 20 at any time. They take about 2 hours to charge from flat to full. Easy!
Q - We live a long away from Wiltshire - Can you send them to us?
Answer - Yes but we do need some notice to get things organised. We will require a deposit which we refund when the kits comes back safely. The deposit that we charge for this service is larger than when you come and pick up the equipment yourselves.
Q - What happens if we loose some headsets?
Answer - Well, the reception range on these headphones is about 100 meters, so people do occasionally wonder off and then leave the headphones in fields, bedrooms etc. We advise organiser to keep an eye on where the headphones go - We charge £25.00 for any lost headphones - This is about how much it costs us to replace them.

Silent discos, in which people dance to music played through personal headphones rather than speakers, was once the preserve of music festivals and special club nights. But now it is becoming increasingly popular at weddings and private parties, enabling teenagers to dance to their hearts' content without keeping their parents or the neighbours awake all night.
And the fact that dancers can choose between two or more different channels (With our equipment you can choose up to 3 channels) means classical music fans waltzing to Schubert can in theory share the same floor as ravers partying to hard-core techno music. Its origins are said to date back to an obscure 1969 Finnish sci-fi film called Ruusujen aika, but its popularity has soared in Britain since it appeared at the 2005 Glastonbury music festival.
James Johnson and his wife Kirsty, of Glasgow, had a silent disco at their wedding reception in Stobo Castle in the Scottish Highlands in June, with Motown on one channel for older guests and current hits aimed at the younger ones. Mr Johnson, a 27-year-old property manager, said: "It went down far better than I expected. I had my doubts about it, thinking it was just for younger people – you only ever see them at these festivals.
"But everybody loved it, all our parents went daft on it. There was an old Auntie with her headphones, flicking the switch between channels and putting the volume up." Mollie Nock, 15, of Pangbourne in Berkshire, experienced her first silent disco, which she described as "a load of out of tune people singing and dancing", at the Reading Festival last weekend.
She now plans to have one at her 16th birthday party in two months. "It was so much fun. I don't know why it's more interesting and enjoyable than a normal disco, but for some reason it seems less awkward," she said "It feels freer and nobody really cares. It's ridiculous because you could be listening to one channel and your friend to another and be dancing completely out of sync. It's hilarious.
The equipment can be hired with or without one of the disco options shown on our disco pages. Some people prefer to start the party with conventional sound system and switch to headphones when you start worrying about neighbours. Some people may prefer to have the whole party as a silent disco and giggle at people singing out of tune!
Prices From - The headphones can be hired individually with prices set as follows:
