Done with social distancing? It’s time to get up-close and personal as Auckland’s most talked-about singles' event returns for spring. 

Could there be a better place to meet someone special? Start the night with drinks and live music in the Grand Foyer. We’ve added an extra bar, and our ‘icebreaker hosts’ will be on-hand to get the conversation flowing. That’s when the fun starts. 

If things are looking promising, take a stroll through our beautifully-lit galleries. There will be plenty to chat about with fun mini-challenges and conversation-starters along the way.

Speed dating is so last year - why not try our ‘Carbon Dating’ instead? Amongst the dinosaur bones, our host will put guests into pairs for timed challenges - complete puzzles and games while getting to know each other.

Our popular Blind Date game show will also be making a return and you can register to participate when you purchase your ticket. We’ll be in touch with more info closer to the date but if you get cold feet, don’t worry as you can always opt out. 

So whatever your preference, ditch the dating app and join us for fun, flirting and who knows what else. To ensure a good mix on the night, please purchase a ticket that honestly reflects your gender -  if your gender is sold out, it’s sold out. 

Better make your move - last time tickets sold out fast!
