Speed Date With The Swedes!
If you’ve heard of Midsummer in Sweden then you’ll know that they seriously know how to party and celebrate this occasion. We’re talking food, drink and lots and lots of flowers, it looks simply beautiful in the summer sun!
have put on a free Swedish pop-up festival on their very own vessel, the Midsommarstång! It will be popping up on weekend’s throughout July on London’s waterways, namely Paddington Basin, Granary Square Kings Cross and Olympic Park where guests can immerse themselves in Scandinavian culture, food and drink. Sounds like a pretty fab weekend activit to me, I can’t get enough of Scandi design so I’m sure I’d love the culture as a whole. The festival includes a pop-up party, bar serving Rekorderlig cocktails, a grill and chef’s table four course meal as well as the awesome Seven Flowers Swede Dating event.
Super MTV babe Maya Jama (also Hello! Magazine’s Rising Star of 2016 FYI) headed down to the last dating event and got into the Swedish spirit and mingled with some singles. Rekorderlig Cider is definitely on course to bring true love to the streets (or waterways!) of London this summer. The next dating event
, if you fancy heading down, is on 21st July at Paddington Basin.
“The Seven Flowers Swede Dating event follows on from a time-honoured Swedish folklore on Midsummer’s Eve in Sweden where it’s tradition for single women to pick seven flowers and place them in under their pillow at night, and they’ll dream of their future husband. With this in mind, Rekorderlig Cider is hoping the single men and women of London will find the partner of their dreams during the swede dating events!”
