Ever fancied dancing the night away with a real-life dinosaur? Now’s your chance!
National Museum of Wales are hosting a Silent Disco on November 30 with Dippy The Dinosaur!
As part of a road trip across the UK, Dippy has ventured out of London for the first time since 1905. And is on display at National Museum Cardiff until 26 January 2020 – and he’s on a mission… to inspire five million natural history adventures, encouraging everyone to explore the natural history collections and biodiversity right on your doorstep in Cardiff.
Dippy is cast from a near complete skeleton discovered in Wyoming, America in 1898. The specimen is made up of 292 bones and is an impressive 21.3 metres long, 4.3 metres wide and 4.25 metres high.
National Museum Cardiff have lined up an exciting programme of events including two silent discos with HUSH.
There will be prehistoric family fun at HUSH’s early evening silent disco from 6pm- 7.30pm, in which DJs will keep feet moving and your hands in the air while you and your little dinosaurs dance away under Dippy’s gaze!
Then from 8.30 pm until 12.am there’s a silent disco for adults in which the grown-ups can rock the night away with some prehistoric sounds! Hosting a DJ Set will be BBC Radio Wales presenter and weather lady, Sue Charles, also an avid music fan!
Sue has tweeted about the event (@Sue_Charles):
“Deeply Dippy about DJing with a dinosaur! It’s going to be a megasaurus night at the museum, with the #HUSH silent disco team on Saturday. Which dino-discs would get you on the dancefloor?!”
