Monday 8 Jan 2015 - Caribou Rooms
It's the new year and if you're looking for love we're offering the ultimate dating experience at one of Brighton's yummiest venues. We're combining a fun game of conversation played in rotation (think speed conversation rather than dating), so you get to meet everyone, with the opportunity to socialise more casually in a beautiful setting. The evening is for two age groups 30's & 40's and 45's plus. We understand that there's not always the opportunity in social situations to speak to someone that catches your eye or interests you. So we've mixed up ideas for conversation with elements of speed dating to ensure you get to meet more closely (rather than across a crowded room). An element of speed dating is that you get to express your interest in someone without them knowing - and the bonus, if you match you receive each others details to arrange to meet up. We understand that it's also good to chat and mingle in a more relaxed way over a few drinks as this is more natural for some of us. So there will be speed dating and mingling for both age groups, and which ever group you are in everyone will come together for the final part of the evening. Caribou rooms, located on the border of Brighton & Hove, is a stunning venue offering an informal & relaxed atmosphere across 3 floors. If you've not already been to an event here we know you'll love it as much as we do. A full bar, draft and bottled beer and cocktails are available, and The Meyoo cocktail will be on offer for the evening. Soft drinks, teas and coffees are also available for those that don't drink alcohol or who are taking it easy after a Christmas indulgence (although beware, nibbles are included) We pride ourselves on our dating events and have always received excellent feedback and a good gender balance. "Thanks for a great speed dating event, good mix of people and wonderful venue, really good turn out" - male "I thoroughly enjoyed last night, great bunch of people and such a nice setting" - female Read more about what people say about Meyoo events at our Yoo Say page. Our new years Ceilidh is on offer when booked with another event in January. Find out more here and simply select your choice of ticket to book for two events. Photo by Rodney Beckford

If you've ever wanted to make or be in your own zombie movie then this course from Bite Size Movies may be something you can get your teeth into. In two days in a collaborative process, we will be improvising, scripting, story boarding and creating our own short zombie film from scratch. Depending on the script produced we will be filming the movie using a combination of location and green screen techniques.
