It's back, Dating Bingo- the dating event with balls! This time we're up at the boho chic Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch. Original Dating has exclusive access to the upstairs Gallery and what a night this is going to be! Not only will we be back with our Original Dating Bingo cage but the dream team of myself and our top host Jordan, will be there to make sure this night really pops off. There's even been some improvements added to this already super fun event, to make it even more electric. 


Firstly this brand new event seen its first outing on Valentines night with over 100 guests bouncing around the room meeting fellow bingo ballers and crossing off those numbers as they went. We've brought it back with a bang, with additions such as bingo daubers, more prizes and some new surprises. 


So for those of you who don't know Dating Bingo, it's the dating event where you are the balls. Everyone gets their own unique Bingo number and of course a bingo card. The idea is simple, you make your way around the room speaking to as many people as possible to find out their bingo number, if it's on your card you can cross it off. The goal is to completely cross off all the numbers on your card and then it's time to shout BINGO! There's three Bingo prizes to be won throughout the night but the fun doesn't stop there. We'll be doing random Bingo draws with our big red OD Bingo cage and if your number is drawn you win a free drink on us! 


Let's talk a little bit about Beach Blanket Babylon, Shoreditch. We're super lucky to have such a cool venue for what is undoubtedly a cool event! Situated right beside Shoreditch High Street Station it's slap bang in the middle of Shoreditch. With a great selection of drinks and well-priced, choosing this venue for Dating Bingo really was a no brainer. 


If you want to meet people in person and have fun doing so, Dating Bingo is the alternative dating event for you. We all know how boring dating apps are now and here at Original Dating we're making dating the fun experience it's supposed to be. So come join us for a wild night of Dating Bingo with over 100 other singles at Beach Blanket Babylon.

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.
