Halloween PlayDate- Friday 25th October….

We have made it past the summer and had a brilliant birthday event in Holborn. Everyone that came was amazing and created a masterpiece that will be auctioned off to charity.

Our next event will be a little bit spooky, as its the week before Halloween but just as much fun as ever. We have a funky new venue- Archangel (nearest tube High St Kensington) and some new games as well as our old favourites. And its a Friday night so we get to party and play all the way into Saturday morning….

Note: Our ladies tickets have now sold out for 25th October, and as we try to get an even number of ladies and gentlemen we cannot release more female tickets at this time. Click on the link below for ‘Mixed’ tickets which are still available which will admit one single lady and one single man at a discounted rate. Male tickets are still available.

Its our birthdayyyyyy!

Its our official 1st birthday (not counting the test runs) and we are very proud of the many couples, friendships, art and crafts that have been made and we hope that  our ethic will inspire others to craft, create and give. So to celebrate this grand occasion we have decided to do some things a little differently.

On Thursday 20th of June we celebrate with a paint party in Holborn where all participants will not only get to create their own masterpieces (in addition to our usual array of lego, games, toys and sweets available) but shall also collectively paint a masterpiece that will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to a charity chosen by YOU.

We ask that you go to the Facebook page and either choose a charity to vote for or nominate one of your own (nominations close on 31st May). Ask your friends to vote too, voting is open to everyone!

Once the painting has been completed the 3 charities with the most nominations will compete against each other for a 70% share of the total selling price with the other 30% going to a charity of the winning bidders choosing.

Our birthday PlayDate will have cake, nibbles, and drinks all included in the ticket purchased. Tickets are available by hitting the big red button below!

August PlayDate London

Friday, 17 August 2012 from 18:30 to 21:00

August PlayDate was a great way to end the summer and as it was bang, slap in the middle of the break between the Olympics and Paralympics we decided to give it a slight London 2012 theme. There were a lot more medals and prizes handed out for some of the truly amazing engineering masterpieces constructed, tattoos, and rewards for good/bad behaviour.

There were a lot of fun games with the quote of the night being-

“Now pick up your partners knickers and hang them up to dry!”

Once again matches were made and lots of people stayed behind to watch and dance to the great live bands featured that night until 4am! Hardcore….

Come and play with us at Halloween PlayDate xx

June PlayDate London

PlayDate London on 20th June got off to a great start!

It was a bit difficult to tear everyone away from the play-doh and plasticine but thankfully we managed it and awarded prizes from Artyfro to the winners of the ‘filmkiss’ quiz and ‘Origami Ordeal’.

We always aim for an even ratio of gentlemen to ladies but unfortunately had to turn away a couple of very latecomers so we do urge in the future for everyone to turn up on time so that everyone can play!

We hear on the grapevine there were a few matches made on the evening too….

Ginglik were the perfect hosts as usual and created a fantastic atmosphere.
