Happy New Year! Here’s to 2019…

We are rolling into 2019 with as big a bang as possible by teaming two great events in one fantastic night … Twice!!!
“I’ll be your baby tonight..?” Interactive Theatre Show and ourselves U.K. Dating Award winners PlayDate London bring you a totally unique dating experience combining a show and our usual unusual PlayDating event.

This event is for everyone and is both heterosexual and LGBTQ+ friendly.

About the show…

“I’ll be your baby tonight..?” is an interactive experience where audience and performer ‘date’, collectively creating their ultimate relationship ‘to do list’ which they then play out through a series of semi-improvised, interactive games.
A combination of clowning, stand-up/confessional storytelling and interactive ‘gameplay’, which aims to uplift the audience, celebrating the messier side of human nature: cock-ups, vulnerability and all.

Created and performed by Performer and Dyslexic Theatre Maker Holly Delefortrie in collaboration with Sophie Powell (Director and Clowning Specialist). Heidy Twelvetrees (Psychotherapist), Rhiannon Lawrence (Sound Designer) and Simon Chorley (Lighting Designer)

We are serving both sides of the river from 7pm-
on Thursday 6th February at The Aeronaut in West London and on Friday 6th February at Matchstick Theatre in South London.

Early bird tickets start from £20 and are available until the 14th January xx
Part 1 (West): https://val19.eventbrite.co.uk
Part 2 (South): https://matchstick.eventbrite.co.uk

Meeting new people through creative play at a PlayDate Party can involve sculpting sand, spray-painting, drawing, games, crafting and always a bit of Lego thrown in for good measure. Our events are always uniquely different and we guarantee a fun time.
You don’t have to be especially creative to PlayDate, our aim is to make sure that you meet great people, get quality playtime with each other and most importantly- have fun!

Summer heralds the return of our award winning Waterfight!

We are pleased to announce two summer 2018 events at The Aeronaut– our summer singles event on Friday 1st June and our award winning Waterfight returns on Sunday 29th July.

Note that the Waterfight is NOT a singles event and everyone is welcome.

Tickets for the singles event will include our usual toys, games and goody bags; we have magic sand, Lego, drawing, crafting, giant Connect 4 and as we are in a circus top- hula hoops and body art and lots more to amuse and hopefully delight. For those who’d prefer a more active end to the evening there will be Virtual Reality gaming and a DJ playing all night.

Tickets for the Waterfight start from only £10 and are on sale from midnight on 31 May. Our last Waterfight won Best Original Event at the UK Dating Awards beating both Match.com and Guardian Soulmates… It was amazing and we hope the next one will be even better as this time the venue are letting us loose with games and toys in their garden and with their fire pit too!

For both events we will be roasting marshmallows over an open fire and making s’mores to close out the evening.


Spring PlayDate: April 6th 2018

After our pop up at the UK Dating Fair on National Singles Day, Sunday 11 March we will be playing at our next event in North London at the Camden Eye. As usual we will have our usual games, toys and fun vibe- get tickets here. Keep the 1st of June free in your diaries as once we work out how to mix up all the good stuff at our next venue we will be delivering an extravaganza- they’ve got a fire pit, virtual reality, circus acts and brilliant food and drinks… suggestions welcome!

Valentine PlayDate- Friday 10th February

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017… Our new years resolution is the same as ever- to play, have fun, meet new people and if we are lucky- to get lucky in love along the way. Also to do better on social media- follow us on Instagram. Go on. We are cute.

We are playing at The Eagle, Ladbroke Grove this February- the last time we were there was our Mad Hatters Tea Party in 2014 and we had to enforce a naughty corner (as dancing on the bar is prohibited unless accompanied by our staff- strict health & safety rules).
