A Sleepover for Singles at The View From The Shard


Sleep at the Shard
On Saturday 13 September, DoingSomething.co.uk will host the first ever sleepover at The View from The Shard. This is the first time members of the public have been allowed overnight access to the Shard. BIG DEAL.

You’ll  receive a tour of the night sky from the Royal Observatory, who are situating a powerful telescope on the open-air viewing gallery. Armed with sleeping bags and comfortable clothes (sleeping mats are provided) you will also enjoy an array of talks, films and acoustic performances.

Interactive word games will break the ice, followed by a midnight feast from Pizza Pilgrims – delivering piping hot pizzas straight from their Soho ovens. Renowned presenters and literati will also be providing readings of acclaimed writers and poets from The London Literary Salon on the themes of sleep and darkness.

The Glam Camping Company will provide sleeping mats and you will be served a cup of cocoa, read bed-time stories and sung lullabies as you drift off, up in the clouds at 800ft. The sleepover comes to a close in the early morning when daters will be called from their sleeping bags to enjoy a view of the sun rising over London whilst treated to breakfast.

Tickets cost £99 per person and includes a free 30 day membership for new sign-ups.
