Oh it's the most wonderful time of the year......for singles events! That’s right, it's only one week till our massive Christmas Offline Dating Party at the Anthologist, 9th Dec. This is the big one, the piece de resistance, the cream of the crop, the crème de la crème, the tour de force of singles parties! It sounds like I'm over exaggerating doesn't it....well I'm not! This is one Party not to be missed! 

The Mistletoe Mingle, as I like to call it, saw its busiest year last year with over 350 people, proof is in the Christmas pudding as they say. We are expecting a 400 this December and we are nearly sold out already! I would grab a ticket soon if you want to go to the biggest and more importantly, best party of the year! 

The Anthologist is one classy joint which can hold 500+ and one of the longest bars in the city, so there's always a place to get a drink. This place couldn't be a better venue, which you could swing a tiger in, by the way! With 400 guests evenly split male/female, there will be more flirting and mingling than ever before! This prime location makes this spacious venue ideal to kick start the festive period! 

The Christmas Party will have our Lock & Key as our main icebreaker where each guy will get two keys to try in the ladies padlocks and if it opens you will both receive a raffle ticket each. We will be holding a raffle towards the end of the night for some great prizes as well.  Also this year will see us introduce some extra activities such as some festive glitter stations to add some sparkle to your fancy attire and you might be lucky enough to bump into someone under the mistletoe. 

With the Christmas Offline Dating Party fast approaching and tickets selling fast, there's no time to hang about! Book now to ensure you're part of the singles event of the year!

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.
