Chemistry comes to Vinopolis

Eleanor Wallis

Anyone looking for lurrvve should be in Bankside on the 29th and 30th January. Around 15,000 singles are expected to descend on Vinopolis to partake in Chemistry, London's largest ever dating event.

Not only will the event be big; its organisers reckon it will be seriously cool – attracting young professional singles with a penchant for partying. The place will be swathed in flattering light and funky decor while Cupid's tools will be on hand. These will include "The Ocean" – a huge video showing the Chemistry guests and allowing you to register your interest.

There will also be the opportunity to learn some sexy dance moves such as the lambada or salsa, partake in some speed dating, get some flirting tips or partake in some ice-breaking games. Twister anyone?

Tickets to Chemistry will set you back a hefty 39. But true love doesn't come cheap and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, some may consider it a sound investment.
