About the event

Welcome to the biggest and best party for unattached Londoners.

Over 200+ people will join us for the hottest dating event. This super sociable event features our fantastic lock & key icebreaker to ensure you meet a huge number of people.

The best bit? Everyone is single, a similar age and we ensure there's equal male/female ratio in the room.

There's prizes to be won as you seek out the person holding the key that matches your lock (or vice versa).

Each time you find a matching pair you'll be in with a chance to win one of our great prizes.

And of course, you'll meet loads of people along the way, all in the stunning, spacious surroundings of The Anthologist, moments from Bank Station.

Head to our website the following day to view a list of everyone that attended. Select the people you like and our system will tell you who you mutually matched with. Get in touch again via our messenger and the rest is up to you.

  Once you get over the initial awkwardness of the whole thing you genuinely can enjoy your time mingling and flirting. If you don't find anyone of interest consider someone as a friend, there are so many good people to meet. All in all if you don't like anyone try to make some new girlfriends like me and my friends did. I would consider going to another event and bringing some of my other friends as well.

  Not too many people and not too few. Music wasn't too loud and that was good.

  Great event but took far too long queuing up in the cold. Faster registration process next time would be most beneficial. Also, mandatory profile picture would be helpful, otherwise what’s the point in the selection matches afterwards? Blank faces & no info/bio?

  Good venue and good quality people, nice setup, music was a bit to loud and made it hard to hear each other.

  Was a lovely night. Perhaps a little too crowded, the bar struggled to keep up. Wish the background music was a little quieter as we're there to chat not dance.

Thanks Matthew. It sure was a busy one. Point taken on the music. Sometimes our venues creep the levels up without us noticing. Many thanks!

DG Verified Attendee
  All hosts were very welcoming and friendly but didn’t find anyone interesting enough to go for a date. The blankets for outdoor mingling was quite a brilliant touch on a chilly breeze.

Thanks so much DG - do come again, we'll have another huge bunch of people to meet next month!

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.
