After the event you'll have access to our unique online matching system to find out who you've matched with. Simply use our messenger to get back in touch with your mutual matches.

But it doesn't stop there, as part of the V For season you will be able to enjoy a fully vegan BBQ, delicious vegan cocktails and DJ for a late night party to celebrate your plant based lifestyle.

Vegan Speed Dating in London

This event is specifically designed for Vegan's and meeting people who share your passion for vegan and veggie food.


Speed dating is all about having a fun night out and meeting new people, face to face in the easiest possible way. Focus on enjoying yourself, don't take it too seriously and you'll have a great night.

How it works

When you arrive at the venue you’ll meet our friendly hosts. We’ll briefly explain the format of the event and you’ll be straight into your first date.
You’ll have 4 minutes to meet and briefly get to know each person. We’ve found that 4 minutes is just long enough to find out if you'd like to see someone again but not too long if you don't.
Girls stay at the same table throughout the evening and guys move around the room.

After meeting each person, you need to decide if they are a ‘yes’ a ‘no’ or a ‘friend’ and jot down any notes to help you remember them. You'll find out who you matched with the next day and you can message your matches via our app or website.
We'll have a short break halfway through for you to top up your drinks.


After the event

The speed dating is over when you’ve met everybody, but this is often when the fun really starts. Most people stay at the bar for a few drinks and get to know the people they liked a little better.


Our events are guaranteed

If you don't meet someone you want to see again at one of our speed dating events your next speed dating event is free.
Please use our website to enter your preferences and contact matches after the event.
