Online dating outfit DoingSomething.co.uk and Time Out are combining forces to turn the EDF Energy London Eye into the Wheel of Date. For one revolution only, each of the 32 capsules will be turned into a different, activity-based dating experience. There's room for 500 adventurous single people, who will be split into groups of ten to 20 and allocated a 'Dating Capsule' at random. What you encounter there might be the immersive experience of Future Cinema, a Ping Pong tournament courtesy of the Book Club or a Cafe Kick's table football competition. Legendary club night Guilty Pleasures will host miniature clubbing capsules, while Silent Disco UK do the same – but in complete silence. Other possibilities include a Lucky Voice Karaoke capsule, a Karauke capsule (you guessed it – a moment in the spotlight with your own ukulele backing band), Black Cat Cabaret and The Comedy Store Stand Up gigs. Your dating fate will be decided by The Wheel of Date. Then you can get to know your new friends better at the after party included in the admission price.

Women's tickets are sold out. Limited male tickets are available for £29 – the price Includes one place on the Wheel of Date, a ticket to the after party at The Old Vic tunnels and a one month subscription to DoingSomething.co.uk.
