What is the format for Valentine's at Fortnum's

Each event follows the classic speed dating format with 20 male and 20 female attendees at each event. You will meet everyone for short dates, each lasting approximately four minutes. You will receive a welcome drink upon arrival.  Throughout the event, Fortnum's will serve a selection of canapes and taster drinks, all of which are included in the ticket price.

There will be a short break roughly half way through the event. You will keep track of who you have met on a 'scorecard' 

After the event

After the event, participants will login to the Original Dating website. You will be presented with a list of everyone you met at the event and have the opportunity to select the people you wish to see again. At 5pm on the day following the event our system will let you know who you mutually matched with and your matches will be displayed on privately the website. You will be able to contact anyone you matched with via the website.


We recommend a smart casual dress or office attire for this event.
