Be prepared to be dazzled

CitySwoon, Australia's #1 face to face dating site, is hosting a truly historic event in February 2014; the world's 'Biggest Blind Date' and all Sydney singles are invited to come along and enjoy the fun.

The 8 year record for the 'Biggest Blind Date' was recently beaten in Chicago with 654 people on 327 blind dates. Now Sydney will up the ante by staging its official Guinness World Record® attempt at the Sydney Opera House on Friday 21st February, from 7.30pm.

The event will see over 700 Sydneysiders enjoy a 'matched date' inside the iconic Sydney Opera House. The event itself will be staged in a stunning room, with floor to ceiling glass and set against the backdrop of the bridge and harbour, participants will meet their 'matched date' for the first time.

In order to break the record, each blind date must last at least one hour and as the evening progresses, participants will be served a range of canapés created by Matt Moran's event company ARIA Catering, complemented by sumptuous wines, including sparkling, and premium beer and soft drinks.

Once the one hour has passed, there will be a countdown and a celebratory after-party event will be held. Participants are welcome to mingle with other record-breakers, sip champagne and partake of canapés.

Each participant will receive a copy of the Guinness World Record® certificate.

This event will be observed by Guinness Stewards and independent witnesses and is expected to attract international attention; there will be TV news media and many other reporters from print to radio.

To take part in this event, you will need to purchase a ticket.

Tickets are priced $98 plus booking fees; to proceed with a booking, please visit the dedicated CitySwoon website and follow the links. You will need to provide a few details about yourself for the purposes of the matched date.

Such a terrible event. Poorly organised with little communication. Many paying customers, who followed all the rules demanded of us, were left screwed over. This event did not provide the service they offered.
