Our BIG Summer Boat Party 2014

Tuesday April 29, 2014

On Saturday June 7, 2014 we're having a HUGE boat party and it's called Rock The Boat.  250 people will join us aboard the good ship Golden Jubilee for this three hour afternoon party cruise on the River Thames and we'd absolutely love you to be there too. 

Our cruise departs Temple Pier taking in the sights from The Houses of Parliament down to The O2 and back. We'll have an equal male to female ratio aboard and we'll be using our lock and key icebreaker to ensure everyone gets to meet lots of people during the day.

As the sun beats down and the drinks flow our house band, The Gremlins, will provide the soundtrack to the afternoon. The atmosphere will be amazing and there's going to be a lot of people to meet. On the lower deck we're running speed dating sessions throughout the cruise offering even more chances to meet people. Our cruiser is one of London's most popular party boats and is equipped with two fully stocked (and reasonably priced) bars so you won't wait long for a drink. The Golden Jubilee also has a large open sun deck so you can soak up the rays as you flirt! 

Attend this party and you're guaranteed to meet A LOT of people. So many people, in fact that it's practically impossible not to meet someone you click with. 

This is event going to sell out (all our big parties do) so please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

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.
