Dating in the Dungeon - Halloween Dating Party 2012

Friday October 12, 2012

OK, so we know Halloween is for small children and Americans but we like to think it's as good an excuse as any for one of our excellent parties, and you, dear reader are very much invited!

This year's Halloween dating extravaganza is entitled Dating in The Dungeon. Now please don't think this is some kind of Fifty Shades of Grey style sordid affair! It isn't that at all. But we've have hired the rather wonderful Adam Street Club for this event and it's based in 18th century vaults under The Strand so it's quite dungeon-like enough for us!

Our Brilliant Icebreakers

Our parties are probably amongst London's most sociable events and an unmissable opportunity if you're single. We've organised enough of these events to know they are hugely successful at getting people together.

250 people will attend and our parties always sell out. We'll ensure there's an equal male/female ratio and we're laying on our unique lock and key icebreaker that ensures everybody has a great reason to mingle. Nothing else gets a party going like it. And there's spooky prizes too!

Online Messaging Post Event

You'll meet loads of people at this party but feedback tells us it's still tricky to getting contact details on the night. Your wish has been granted as we've introduced a messaging platform on our site that means you can contact the people you met the next day. So that's that sorted for you.

Ghoulishly Great Entertainment

We think there's nothing quite like a live band when it comes to making a party atmosphere so we've secured one of London's best covers bands to join us. They're so good you'll think you're listening to the real thing, only better.

Our Dungeon (Venue)

Adam Street is a private members club located in a stunning building and its main bar is in 18th century vaults. It's very cool and we're only allowed to use it because our clients are such nice people. It's a great place for a party and it's the kind of place our competitors can only dream about hiring. You'll love it.

Book now, this event is already selling!

This event is taking place 19 days from today on Friday October 26, 2012. Some eagle-eyed viewers have already spotted the listing on our website and we'd sold 38 tickets before we'd pressed send on this email. It's going to sell out really quickly so please grab your tickets ASAP so you don't lose out. Our last big party sold out in two weeks.

This is going to be a genuinely great way to meet people, click for more info and bookings:

Until next time,

Original Dating

PS: Don't miss this event. Clicky clicky!






The beauty of Speed Dating London lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.

When you get there

Original speed dating events in London normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are a girl.

Meet & Mingle

A London speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes for speed dating London. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!

Complete your score sheet

After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
