What’s better than a speed dating event? Answer: a speed dating event for 200 people, that’s what. Add to that an awesome after-party and you’ve got a night of dating potential like no other.

Introducing The Big Speed Date™.

We see our success rates soar when we bring loads of people together under one roof, so for this event 100 girls and 100 guys are expected.

We’ll be kicking off with speed dating on a grand scale. Everyone will take part and you’ll meet a bunch of people quickly, face-to-face for IRL dates lasting 4 minutes. Hosted by our compare, this part of the night will get conversation flowing and works brilliantly as an icebreaker for the crowd.

We think of speed dating as the starter to this night, but the main course is yet to come.

As the speed dating ends, the afterparty begins. This is less structured, and you’ll be free to meet and chat to people you’ve not yet met.

We’ll lay on some optional games and fun activities to ensure it’s easy to meet as many people as possible as the night goes on.

Like all of our events, The Big Speed Date features online matching and messaging. Everyone uploads a photo ahead of the night so it’s easy to keep track of who you liked and want to see again. The next day, we’ll crunch the results and let you know who you mutually matched with so you can get back in touch.

Book early, this event has caused quite a stir and tickets are selling fast! Better still, book now!

Introducing The BIG Speed Date™

200 people, one huge speed dating event followed by one huge after-party 


If you're looking to meet a lot of new people in one night, this is definitely the party for you. Featuring 200 people (equal male/female split) and an array of icebreakers and opportunities to meet (OTMs) designed to make it fun and super easy to meet loads of people.


Dating, as they say, is a numbers game so this event is all about meeting lots of people. 


Speed Dating

After a brief intro by our hosts, the night begins with one huge speed dating event. Everyone will take part together so the atmosphere is amazing. Now, this is no normal speed dating event - there's 10 times more people in the room! Everyone will have around 15 or so individual speed dates to get the night off to a flying start. 


The After-party

The after party is where you'll get to meet everyone else. You can take this part of the night at your own pace or join in with one of our OTMs happening around the venue. We're not revealing too much here but rest assured we've got some fun stuff up our sleeve all designed to make it super easy to meet more people than you ever thought possible. All of the games and activities are optional and you can choose what you do and when you do it.


Online Matching

Now, you're going to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed but at this event, there's no need to ask for phone numbers. Upload a picture to your profile and you'll be visible 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.
