Summer has been over for a while, even when it was officially summer, so of course we’re looking to everything that autumn brings. We’re pretty excited for Halloween already, and one thing that’ll have you shaking in your boots is a silent disco known as The Silence of the Baths at Manchester’s famous and historical Victoria Baths.
For the first time ever, Victoria Baths will bring you all the thrills of Halloween with a spooktacular silent disco, ‘The Silence of the Baths’, setting your heart racing and sending tingles running down your spine with a takeover by legendary Girls on Film plus special guests THT GRL (Not Bad For A Girl) and DJ MX WORLD.
For more than ten years Girls on Film have been enthralling clubbers at venues around Manchester. This Halloween they’re back, with their entourage of performers, for their first appearance at Victoria Baths. Girls on Film x Victoria Baths brings an outrageous Halloween silent-but-deadly disco to the best Halloween venue in town.
A building once abandoned, a labyrinth of corridors and over 100 years of history, Victoria Baths was made for a fright night like this. With every space dressed for the occasion, you’re invited into a world where the line between eerie and enchanting blurs.
Channel options on the night will be as follows:
Channel one: Hostess with the Mostess Hattie Pearson will play the best 80s/90s throwbacks.
Channel two: Multi-genre, non-binary Northern powerhouse DJ MX WORLD provides the 00s bangers.
Channel three: Special guests THT GRL (Not Bad For A Girl), Manchester’s collective of women and non-binary babes who just want to have fun, will be spinning a mix of all their biggest belters!
Taking over the ground floor, the pool halls and Turkish Baths will be open to explore, with the silent disco taking place in the Sports Hall. Head to the VB Bar for spirits, chasers and other exciting elixirs, including craft beers, specially conjured cocktails and mysterious mocktails, plus a range of tasty non-alcoholic tipples.
Unleash your inner ghoulish glam or don your most ingenious Halloween costume for a chance to win fabulous prizes in the venue’s Fancy Dress Competition. Then, you can capture your spooktacular memories at the selfie station, with photo opportunities across the spaces and the glorious background of the iconic Grade II* listed Victoria Baths.
You can get your tickets here, and find Victoria Baths at Hathersage Rd, Manchester M13 0FE.
