About the event

Welcome to the biggest and best party where unattached Londoners meet first in person, not online.

200-300 people will join us for this exciting night designed to get your New Year dating off to the best possible start.

This event features our fantastic lock & key icebreaker to ensure you meet a huge number of people. 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 Happenstance, moments from St Pauls 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.

This party is the perfect place to meet people this autumn. You just need your ticket! Book now, this will sell out.

  A great way to meet people. We arrived at the venue which was easy to get to, was greeted by helpful staff members and given either or lock or key. This was a good ice breaker for those who aren’t very confident. As you know that everyone is single you don’t have to worry about checking their status. Every time someone unlocked the lock you were given a raffle ticket to be in with a chance of winning a prize. This encourages you to talk and chat to more people. Would attend again, might just need a bigger venue.

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.
