After seven long weeks, the reality TV wonder that is ‘Love Island’ reaches its climax tonight. Despite our heartbreak at the thought of the tantalising Majorca-based dating show leaving us, there are plenty of ways to see it out in style. Here’s where you can find the best ‘Love Island’ final parties, quizzes and screenings – the ones that will definitely be your type on paper.
Head to the flat above the much-loved Shoreditch boozer to drown your sorrows while celebrating the end of ‘Island’ life. It will be screening the final episode at 9pm, but not before testing your ‘Love Island’ know-how in a pub quiz hosted by quizmaster Sam Conway. Entry is £2 per person and there’s a £50 bar tab and mystery prizes for whoever can demonstrate their knowledge of grafting and melts is the best.
The Old Blue Last. Shoreditch High St Overground. 7pm. Quiz £2, screening free. Email email@example.com to reserve a table.
