London (PRWEB UK) 23 July 2014
Activity based dating site DoingSomething has long promoted that the best way of getting to know someone new is doing a shared activity. And as well as being fun, the game may be an innovative way of assessing potential partner compatibility.
Daters will negotiate the brightly coloured discs covering the open-air Level 72 viewing gallery at the highest accessible point of The Shard. The game will be compared by Tristram Shackerley-Bennett, the popular Inflatable Church host which has become a favourite at festivals such as Bestival.
The Duppy Share - the brand new golden Caribbean rum - will help get the party started. Giving all daters a glass of their ‘twist’ on a classic rum punch on arrival. After all what would a giant game of twister be without a little Jamaican courage for good measure?
DoingSomething.co.uk CEO Matt Janes comments ‘Our site is all about people getting to know new people in a light hearted, non awkward way. Everyone playing has something in common from the get-go. Not least of which they’ve decided Twister is a perfectly valid first date activity!’
Juliette McCrimmon, DoingSomething.co.uk’s Head of Events adds ‘It’s just a great ice breaker. You can’t take yourself too seriously when you’re upside down or have got your elbow in a stranger’s face. Having a laugh is the best way to meet someone.’
In February DoingSomething built an Igloo at the top of the Shard, and this latest event begins a season of Shard Lates dating events at the The View from The Shard with forthcoming neon ping-pong and a horror special over Halloween.
