Hot Dates with the Past

The grand Elizabethan Red Lodge Museum will once again be transformed into a dating site, taking inspiration from chats on dating apps, secret histories and fantasies that reveal all.

The lodge will become a dating site like Tinder, Grindr, Scruff or Guardian soul mates. Will you be swiping left or right as you move from banqueting hall to bedchamber?

Will you find love in a portrait or amongst fellow guests?

Join us for this steamy night as we weave through the truths and fictions of dating history with artists Tom Marshman, Timberlina and Catherine Hoffmann.

A pop-up bar will be available, for your pleasure!

Hot Dates from the Past is produced by Beacons, Icons and Dykons. Part of Bristol Pride.
