About the event

*** 200+ PEOPLE ALREADY BOOKED ***

Some things in life are just better done off line and meeting people is definitely one of them. Introducing our Late Summer Offline Dating Party.

We're bringing together 200+ eligible singles to party, drink, laugh and flirt outrageously for one awesome night.

This party features a duo of icebreakers (totally optional) to ensure everyone gets to meet a lot of people. We'll start with our unique take on speed dating. Reimagined for this event and designed so everyone can take part, we'll break the ice in spectacular style with 10-15 quick introductions to get the ball rolling.

From here our locks and keys take up the icebreaking mantle ensuring you continue to meet people throughout the night. Girls get padlocks and guys get keys. Seek out the matching key to your lock and when you find a match head over to our hosts to enter the prize draw. The more matches you find the more people you’ll meet!

It’s a lot of fun nothing breaks the ice like lock and key.

Our venue for this Party is The Folly, a sophisticated City hangout located next to Monument and Bank stations. We’ve hired their huge downstairs bar exclusively for this event. Perfect for this party with enough space for mingling and a few quieter areas too.

Login to our website after the event to select everyone you want to see again. The next day we’ll show you who you matched with and you can use our messenger to arrange to meet up again. Did you know around 80% of people get a match?

Book now and join us for this party. Tickets are already selling fast and you'll meet so many people you're almost guaranteed to click with someone. Book now!

  Very efficient way to meet a lot of people and quickly decide if you want to go on a date with them. And then take it from there. Also, I would think some friendships may happen too.

HOW IT WORKS

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.
