This bright red lightship docked in one of Rotterdam’s oldest harbours is a unique meeting place. It is easy to access via public transport and car, making it accessible to all.

The inspiring environment and the original layout of the ship contribute to an effective meeting, workshop or teaming building session, while also being a great location for socialising after the work is complete.


Silent disco is the way of turning your birthday celebration or company gathering into an unforgettable experience!

We offer our Silent Disco option in collaboration with DANSVOER -based in Rotterdam- is highly experienced in facilitating Silent Disco adventures. With their 3-channel RGB LED headphones, one has the opportunity to play 3 different styles of music at once. Each headphone is equipped with a channel-switch which enables all individual guests to choose between the three channels at any given point in time. The colour of the LED-lighting emitted by the headphones shows which channel is currently playing on each headphone; red, blue or green. When the silent disco headphones are on, the sound is crisp and clear anywhere in the venue. When you take the headphones off, you can easily have a conversation without having to shout over the music. Perfect!

With one of DANSVOER’s Do It Yourself Silent Disco packages, it’s possible to keep complete control over the music played on all three available channels. We make sure headphones, transmitters and necessary cables are provided; from there on, it’s all up to you. Maybe you want to bring 3 different playlists, playing on laptops or phones? Maybe you just want to use one or two channels? Maybe you like the option of one or two playlists in addition to a channel dedicated to a live DJ? Whatever suits your wishes!
