About the event

The so-called Rule of Six dealt a blow to speed dating events as we know them BUT we have a plan to bring back live dating events within the new rules in the form of Table of Six, our new Curated Dating™ format.

Using our new Curated Dating™ system we can group attendees into tables of six with those who they are most likely to get along with. Each table will feature 3 males and 3 females with compatible personality attributes.

The evening will begin with three mini speed dates as everyone gets to meet everyone else on their table for dates lasting around 6 minutes each. We will ensure social distancing is maintained and tables will be spaced appropriately.

Table service will be provided throughout the event so just let the waiters or our host know when you are ready for a top up.

After the speed dating has taken place it is time to get to know the other people seated around the room.

Whilst we cannot let you mingle in the usual way our host will bring the other tables around the room to you in the form of our fully hosted quiz, the Great British Date Off.

Each question presents a new group challenge. In the process you will get to know the other teams through their answers. It is going to be a blast.

If someone from another team catches your eye, you can select them via our online matching and messaging system, so you have the potential to match with everyone in the venue. We have designed this event to not only to follow government restrictions but to allow you to meet people in a creative way.

If, like us, you're looking to *actually* meet new people and have sociable night out at the same time then this is the event for you! Book now, tickets are strictly limited.

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

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.
