About the event

Valentine's 2024! Over 250+ people will join us for this super sociable party in the heart of London.

Featuring our fantastic lock & key icebreaker and a totally equal male to female ratio you are sure to meet and speak to a huge number of people and have a fab night out.

The best bit? Everyone is single, a similar age and there to meet people in the spacious surroundings of The Happenstance, moments from St Pauls Station.

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

Work the room, meet people, try your locks and key and when you find a matching pair you could be in for a prize. It's hilarious and a lot of fun.

Post event, simply choose the people you liked and our matching system will tell you who you mutually matched with. Get in touch again via our messenger and the rest is up to you.

This really is the perfect place to meet people this Valentine's. You just need your ticket! Book now, we will sell out fast.

  Good although too loud - had to shout to hear each other. Can you turn music down next time ?

  I did meet some nice people and come away with some numbers. But drinks was every expensive, room too loud to converse properly, and they ended the game too soon. I prefer the smaller events but was still glad I went.

  Liked the event, some nice people there but I'd say £25 is a bit expensive for just the chance to mingle. Could at least have thrown in a free drink.

  The concept of the event was good, people including organisers were very nice. But the space was small, crowded and too loud. Not ideal to have conversations.

  It was too loud during the speed dating event too many people in a small area. The party was great

  Good. But it was way, way too loud. Was actually hard to talk to people - which kind of defeats the point!

  Appreciated the 50/50 men/women ratio, and the online matching system makes it low pressure

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.
