VIDEO: Silent disco in Emsworth for Comic Relief

Dozens of children and adults alike danced the night away in Emsworth last night (March 13).

As part of its designation as an official red nose town, a silent disco took place in the town square from 6pm-9pm and residents are already calling for it to be repeated next year.

Rich Taylor, of Hollybank Lane, was dancing with his daughter Hannah, ten.

“We should do this every Friday,” he said. “It’s brilliant, no it’s more than that, it’s excellent. It works.

“We’re all enjoying it, every Friday would be great.”

Meanwhile Siobhan McDonald-Hughes, of Neville Gardens, was dancing with her eight-year-old son Kian.

“It’s better than I was expecting, she said. “The boys were a bit shy when we first got here but it’s really good fun – I like it.

“I’m impressed at how well Emsworth is decorated.”

She praised the town community spirit for this and also for past events.

“When they do something like this they always do really well and the whole town gets involved – it’s really fun.”
