7 alternative summer dating ideas for 7 student cities
Share This Article:
In association with datewithstudents.com, we’ve crossed the length and breadth of the country (ok, we just hit Google a few times...) to track down a whole bunch of alternative dating activities across the UK’s busiest student cities. From extra terrestrial film screenings (London) to free live music on summery evenings (Birmingham), we suggest you get yourself down to some of these – maybe even taking along someone you want to be more than friends with... now there’s a suggestion. Consider all your student date woes solved. Unless we’ve missed your city off, of course, in which case let us know – and we’ll write another article including it next week. You are very welcome. Birmingham Let’s kick this list off with a bit of local talent, which in Birmingham’s case is being debuted via Thursday evening Summer Sessions in the lovely surround of Cannon Hill Park. Free music galore, until 27th August. Grab a picnic blanket and a bottle of wine and you’ve got your summer date night sorted. Just pray it doesn’t rain on your parade. Bristol If you’re feeling a little bit geeky when date day rolls around, why not drag your lucky paramour around the cobbled streets of Bristol on the Curious About Bristol? walking tour? The self-guided tour even includes an optional treasure hunt. If you want to venture further afield, to the home of Regency itself, the same tour also runs in neighbouring Bath. Lovely. Cambridge We wanted to suggest strawberries and a punt... but this is supposed to be an alternative list, so boats and berries probably won’t win you any dating points amongst the students of Cambridge. Instead, why not embrace the ultimate in 80s guilty pleasure and head over to Spandau Ballet’s afternoon gig at Newmarket Racecourse? We think this idea is quite simply gold. Friday 14th August, from 3pm.
