Mingle / Late Date

Wednesday 13 February 2008

British Library event 2007As part of an irregular series of 'Mingles' the British Library presents a relaxed and fun open house for single people on Wednesday 13 February. A chance to meet like-minded others and to enjoy some of the Library's treasures, temporary exhibitions and some special treats laid on for the occasion.

In particular the event features late access to the exhibition Breaking The Rules: The Printed Face of The European Avant Garde 1900-1937 with its magnificent display of graphics, film, photography and magazines - truly reflecting the sublime to the bizarre from an era of explosive creativity. Our Mingle therefore has something of an avant garde twist.

The event also features a range of intriguing attractions, games, competitions, quiz trails. and on the night surprises .. to get you talking to each other!

  • Extraordinary bard Sean McCann composing instant sonnets that bring two people together - at least in words!
  • Bookchase ® A special demonstration and chance to play the rapid version of this new, hugely successful board game. It's the perfect game for anyone who has read a book (or two): beg, steal or borrow books for your bookshelf to win!
  • Meet international flirting guru Marco Gambino for a easy going one-to-one session of advice on how to seduce a man or a woman - the Italian way.
  • Win concert tickets or a meal for two by finding answers to cunning questions hidden away in the galleries.
  • Enjoy the company of some rather unusual hosts
  • Find your famous partner and win a free drink.

Plus more to be confirmed.
