It’s that time of year again, Valentines Day is just around the corner. If you’re single though FEAR NOT. Feeling Gloomy and Down With Dating are here to save the day.
Tonight you can head down to o2 Academy Islington and drown your sorrows/meet your future love from 8pm.
The evening is split into two parts:
Part One is organised by Down With Dating and is a speed hating and blind hate event. No – that’s not a typo.
Speed Hating works the same as speed dating, but you get to rant about all the things you dislike about the world, and hope the person opposite you feels the same way.
Blind Hate works as if Cilla were there in person, asking you questions like “If I left you how would you take your revenge on my beloved pet kitten?”
Surprisingly, many people have found love through these events…
Part Two is brought to you by Feeling Gloomy, who will play you sad songs to let you remember your singledom. Expect heartbreakers like Tainted Love and classic hairbrush sing-along song Total Eclipse of the Heart.
To add insult to injury, dead flowers will be scattered around the room, along with tissues to dry those eyes, and favourite divorce film Kramer vs Kramer will be screened on the wall throughout the evening.
Down With Dating starts at 8pm; Feeling Gloomy starts at 10:30pm.
Down With Dating tickets are £10 advance, whilst Feeling Gloomy tickets are £4.50 adv, £6 before midnight, £8 after, NUS £5.
