Do you hate speed dating? Men move around, women sit down, the same questions over and over again and the pressure to choose someone at the end of the evening. It all feels just a *little bit* forced. So we decided to throw the rules out of the window and create something entirely different. We will be starting with establishing consent and boundaries, followed by a series of fun questions and activities get stuck into. Everyone will be talking to everyone as we don't do gendered seating and we will be adopting our motto of #friendsoverdates because you can never have too many friends.
Access: Mostly sitting around, or short movement in space
