Back by popular demand: City Circle’s famous Valentine's Day event for single Muslims!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and with it the inevitable question from family and friends "Do you have a valentine?". You know that you’d like to meet the right person to share your life with, but if you’re Muslim and single, how do you go about meeting somebody on your wavelength?

If your Facebook status is "single", then join us this Valentine’s Day at The City Circle for an evening with Muslims in London and beyond who are thinking about marriage. Our evening will start with a short talk on how to go about searching for the one, with practical tips on how to initiate conversation and build rapport with anyone. If mingling in a social environment isn’t usually your thing, fear not: our facilitator will explain how to go about portraying yourself confidently – even if you’re shy.

We will then move onto a fun ice-breaking exercise to get guests meeting, greeting, and getting to know each other. This will be the perfect opportunity to test out the techniques we’ve just discussed, all in a relaxed, halal environment. You can also ask advice from our facilitator.

After the event, you are welcome to join other guests for dinner on Edgware Road to carry on the conversation (not included in the ticket price).

Please join us for a fun evening, meeting like-minded people. And maybe, just maybe, meet that special person to complete half your deen!

This is a ticketed event. Click here to book your place. All proceeds will go to fund the City Circle's charity projects.
