Drag Queens Bottomless Brunches
It has been scientifically proven that drag queens make everything better. So, how about a brunch with bottomless prosecco and some of the most side-splitting and raunchy comedy routines you’ve ever heard?
Sing along to pop classics, enjoy some good food and get more than a little tipsy while you’re serenaded by a top drag queen. What more could you ask for in life?!
Visit a strange world where the ground moves beneath you and you can barely keep your balance. Is it a night out in Cardiff? No! It’s Jump London, the trampoline park that lets you bounce around with glee in a soft and cushioned environment.
Sometimes it’s the small things in life that make the biggest impact. So let those big kids inside of you both roam free and find your inner child again with a trampoline date.
Ride the Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit
What’s the longest journey from dizzying heights to lowest lows you can think of in East London? No, it isn’t that time a stranger bored you to tears by explaining the entire plot of their awful book idea to you at some random party in Hackney. It’s the slide at the famous ArcelorMittal Orbit slide!
With an incredible twelve twists and turns through the course of the slide, and speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, this is an adrenaline lover’s dream.
Attend a Murder Mystery Evening
There’s been a murder! And it’s up to you and a rag-tag group of suspect characters to figure out who was responsible. London is awash with dinner and murder mystery packages, but if we may offer up a wildcard suggestion - find one with bad actors.
A murder mystery date needs bad acting like a B-movie needs a bad plot - it just makes it all so much more fun! And hey, (whisper it quietly), aren’t dates supposed to be fun as well as romantic?
