Final tickets for the Autumn Lock & Key Party

Monday October 9, 2017

It's autumn already and I can't help but ask myself, did we even have summer? There must have been one week back in July, you know the one I'm talking about, it was a heat wave that lasted a good 4 or 5 days. Apart from that, all this summer has been good for was proving climate change is real and is most definitely happening now. Well there's no point dwelling on the past, with the cold months round the corner and the sun setting before we get back from work, we are all looking for someone to snuggle up to. What better way to find a date than our Autumn Lock & Key Party and only one week away! 

What to expect at our Autumn Lock & Key Party? 

 At our parties we have around 250 singles, evenly split 50:50, Male and Female. Our main ice breaker is our Lock & Key. This is where the Ladies receive a padlock on arrival and the Gents will get two keys. The idea behind this icebreaker is to give you an 'in' so to speak. Everyone at the event is of course single and here to meet new people, so the lock & key gives you that opening line, takes the pressure off making the first move and gets the ball rolling. 

 If the key opens the padlock that is what we call a match and you take the winning combination to the hosts, where you will get a raffle ticket and another lock & key so you can continue matching. The more people you speak to the more matches you make and the more raffle tickets you will collect. We then hold a raffle towards the end of the night for some mystery prizes. 

 The best thing about our parties is there's no rush, it's not speed dating so you can take your time to chat and flirt without having to rush onto the next date. You are free to mingle and flirt your way round the room at your own pace. Of course it’s a Saturday night and it is a party, so its great fun! It's a chance to let your hair down and enjoy yourself. Imagine being at a top London bar where everyone is single and here for the same reason, well that’s exactly what it's like. 

 The Autumn Party is THIS Saturday  and with 110 ladies already booked, tickets are flying out the door! If you've been to one of our parties before then you know its gonna be good, and if this is your first one then why not come on down, bring a friend and be prepared for a great night out!

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.
