Europe's highest retro gaming silent disco night for one night onlySonic The Hedgehog, one of the most enduring characters of video game history, turns 25 this year. And to celebrate such a momentous occasion Reztron are putting on a wild video game and silent disco party at the highest point in London – The Shard.
London's iconic landmark – standing at 1016 feet tall – will play host to the highest gaming bar for one night only. Celebrating the golden era of video games, from classics like Golden Axe II to Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat to Micro Machines – plus the added bonus of making it a special Sonic-themed shindig – this is the only place to be if you love to game and party.
With 3 DJs spinning everything from rock to pop to hip-hop over 3 different silent disco channels (and a dedicated channel for those wishing to indulge in your fave retro game theme tunes) there'll be music for every taste. A Sonic speed run competition running on large projector screens via the original Mega Drive console will also be running on the night with A Mega Drive and SEGA Swag up for grabs for the winner too.
This is gaming – but not as you know it. Time to play in style.
Over 18s only. Valid ID required. Event runtime: 10:30pm-2:30am. No entry past 1am.
