Join 250 People at London's BIGGEST singles party

Join us for our HUGE Early Summer party at The Drift and party IRL with 250 people.


The format is simple. We attract a group of around 250 eligible, young, single professionals and ensure there's an equal male/female ratio in the room. We'll then give everyone a fun way to break the ice and to ensure everyone gets to meet and speak loads of people during the night.

Simple? Yes. Highly effective? Oh Yes. It's the easiest way to meet someone new in London. 


The Lock and Key Icebreaker


Nothing breaks the ice like it. We give girls the padlocks and guys get the keys and the aim is to find a matching pair. Try your key with as many locks as possible (or vice versa) and you're bound to find a match.


When you find a matching set, both you and your 'match' head to our desk where you'll enter our prize draw to win some great prizes at the end of the night. You also get a new lock or key so you can carry on meeting people.

The more people you meet the more chance you have of winning a prize and of course meeting someone you like too. It works amazingly well as an icebreaker and you'll be amazed how many people you meet.


The lock and key will run until 10.30pm when we'll draw the winners. The party doesn't end here, but by then the ice will be well and truly broken.


Matching and Messaging


Now, you're bound to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed. At this event, there's no need to ask for phone numbers. Upload a picture to your profile and you'll be viewable on our new and improved matching system both during and after the event. Simply scroll through and select the people you want to see again and our system will reveal everyone you mutually matched with the following day.


Get in touch with anyone you matched with via the built in messenger. No other company has this and it sets our events apart.
