Ideas and Inspiration

Social silence

Social silence

Hold a silent social event. Mime your way through a dinner party, dance the night away at a silent disco or keep it buttoned at your ‘stitch & bitch’ session.

Fines and penalties

Fines and penalties

Oops....did I really just say that?! Silent champions who accidentally let something slip during the silence have to pay a penalty fine. All for a good cause of course!

Flash mob

Flash mob

Gather your group (and anyone else who wants to join!) and hold a silent flash mob. Busy public places are best, simply get together and do something silently to get you noticed - like a silent dance routine, Strictly Come Dancing have a great one. Film and share on social media with #silencespeaks

Silent sports

Silent sports

Hold a sporty match/game/tournament in complete silence. Whether it's football, tennis, rugby, netball, hockey or cricket ... it’s going to be a challenge! If someone breaks the silence ask them to pay a small fine or send them to the ‘sin bin’.

Silence sweepstake

Silence sweepstake

A morning? Couple of hours? Ten minutes? How long do you think your group will last being silent before someone slips up? Compete with each other to see who can last the longest and raise extra funds by organising a sweepstake to guess when/who will break the silence. Or download the one we've prepared on our web pages.

Silent auction

Silent auction

Collect unwanted gifts and approach local businesses to donate items for a silent auction. You could even ask people to donate their skills and services for a silent auction of promises. Invite people to place silent bids to secure their lot.

Silent quiz

Silent quiz

Hold a themed silence quiz. We have some ideas on our Silent Quiz sheet to get you started. Charge people for entry and ask questions like, ‘Where was silent movie star Charlie Chaplin born?’

Fancy dress

Fancy dress

A fancy dress party with a ‘silent’ theme. Dress as your favourite silent movie star or you could flip it and dress up as someone who is notoriously outspoken!
