During the night hours it will switch to a silent disco.

The aim is to raise funds for the charity, which usually organises gentle exercise classes, lunch clubs and fitness sessions for over-50s.

It will go towards the Befriending Service, which combats isolation and loneliness among older people in our community. It costs £45 to have someone use the service and the charity is encouraging people part in the dance marathon to be sponsored for up to £45 to represent the 45 hours.

DJ Simon Tuck, a local radio presenter and producer, will be behind the decks and promises to keep the music pumping and the dance floor alive for the duration.

"With an electrifying mix of tunes spanning different genres and eras, this event promises to be a non-stop party like no other,” said an Age UK spokesperson.

All funds raised will directly benefit the Befriending Service service, allowing them to expand their reach and provide even more essential services to those in need.

Denise Stygal-Watson, chief executive at Age UK Milton Keynes, said: "We are thrilled to bring the community together for this incredible event. Loneliness and isolation among older people has become more prevalent, and the funds raised will help us make a real difference in the lives of those we serve. We invite everyone to join us for this record-breaking disco and be a part of something truly special."
