Music on the Riverbank - Throughout the various bars you will find some fantastic musicians performing al fresco to keep you entertained.

Silent Disco -  A truly fun, innovative and highly entertaining way to party! They provide everyone with a set of headphones and have two DJs spinning the tunes simultaneously on two separate channels, leaving you to flick between them and listen to the music you want to throw your best shapes to!
