The city of Canterbury, famous for its beautiful cathedral and located in the county of Kent. Over 160,000 folk dwell in this lovely city, which is one of the most visited cities in Britain and no wonder! Canterbury is a already a popular pilgrimage due to Thomas Beckett but Original Dating is going to bring its own pilgrimage of sorts…Speed Dating!

Original who?

Original Dating has been at the forefront of the Speed Dating scene in London since 2003. One of the first companies around in the UK and we’ve helped thousands of Londoners meet one another. We make over 10 marriages a year, so we clearly know what we’re doing and we don’t want Canterbury to miss out, so we’re bringing the Speed Dating revolution to you!

What is Speed Dating?

Everyone will have a chance to meet everyone for 4 minutes, the perfect amount of time to find out if they’re someone you’d like to see again, if not its just a short chit chat and on to the next date. Of course we throw in a short break to keep your glasses topped up!

What happens when I like someone?

Original Dating has the future at your disposal, with the top of the range matching system. When you meet someone you like make a note of their name on your sheet, you will have till 5pm the next day to enter your matches online, after which you will find out who’s liked you back. There is an online chat platform for you to catch up with your matches and the rest is up to you!

There is always a chance to catch up with your dates at the end of the event, we always encourage people to stick around to chat about their night and maybe have one for the road.
