Comedy, Something A Little Different
Over 18

Having to wake up in this cringe-worthy world of "gonnas", "wannas"  and "LOLZ" and people on Facebook continually writing "your" instead of "you're" we decided to launch London's first ever adults only spelling bee! The hilarious night will consist various rounds of words and their meanings - each more difficult than the last. You can expect anything from Queen's English and the Oxford Dictionary to profanity and the Urban Dictionary.

How it works:

There will be 6 rounds of spelling. Each round more difficult than the last! You will be able to ask the word's origin and meaning and have it used in a sentence. 

Tickets are at a flat rate whether you would like to compete or just watch, laugh and be there for moral support. Either way it will be HILARIOUS!

Once you have purchased tickets please email us to let us know whether you would like to compete or not.

There will be some prizes on the night too for winners and losers alike. 

Hosted by one of the UK's top dating bloggers Jordi Sinclair ( who was sick of all the boring, monotonous events in London decided to leave his PR career and launch cool events brand "Smudged Lipstick" to give Londoners a chance to have a cool affordable, experience by communicating face to face as opposed to swiping behind a screen filled with emojis and LOL’s.
