Love it or hate it you can’t avoid the buzz around yet another series of Love Island epitomising summer romances in beautiful sun filled locations.

Push Events, hopes to bring some romance to the area with a new enterprise called Mix 'n' Pick, which is a speed dating event on Friday, July 19.

It is aimed at bringing couples together to find their own perfect match, but there will definitely be no bikinis or abs on show, but there is the promise of a relaxed and fun evening in the beautiful setting of Slepe Hall in St Ives.

The Mix 'n' Pick team is keen to remind people that technology and algorithms are not always the answer to finding love and are encouraging people to get back to interacting face-to-face with people open to new relationships.

"We're excited to bring this brand new event to Slepe Hall Hotel in the beautiful town of St Ives," said

For fun there will be a different activity to do on each table - ranging from chess to colouring in although this is purely optional. There's a break halfway through to top up drinks and time after the event to have a mingle at the bar.
