Massive London Vday Party - tix avail on door £30 cash - 334 booked with 50/50 gender split! Early bird saver
Prepare yourself for the BIGGEST and BEST Valentines Party in London! Celebrate being single with up to 400 fun and fabulous professionals just like you. SpeedDater always has hundreds more guests than any of our competitors, so join us for the party of the year and see why we are London's favourite singles events company! All the activities listed below are included with your ticket! No extras to pay apart from drinks.
Lock and Key Party
A great ice breaker! Women are given locks and men are given keys. Then you circulate looking for someone who fits your lock or key. Find a match and you can go up to collect a raffle ticket for a chance to win some great prizes.
The perfect Valentines game and a great way to start a party. On entry you'll receive a loveheart candy message. Guests of the opposite gender will match your message. The challenge is to circulate as widely and speedily as possible and have as much fun with it as you can. Once you’ve found your matching partner, the two of you can shimmy over to our fantastic prize table!
Optional Speed Dating
In a separate room we'll be running speed dating - a brilliant way to meet people at the party in a series of fun, three minute dates. If you would like to join in, please sign up for a session at registration. Sessions are in 30 minute blocks, so you will meet around 10 dates per session. Please note sessions have up to 30 dates in total, however you will not date everyone. If you met 30 dates, each session would be over 2 hours and we'd be there till past 4am! The 30 minute sessions are designed as a 'taster' at the party. If you do wish to speed date everyone at the event, we advise booking a regular speed dating event instead of a party. You must be ready to date at least 5 minutes before your sessions begins or you will lose your place!
Speed dating is always very popular, so please arrive by 7:15pm to guarantee a place. Sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis. If you arrive late we can not guarantee you place on the speed dating sessions.
Have your photo taken digitally, printed out in 8 seconds flat by our state of the art digital printer and added to our photo wall. You can look through the photo wall for people you like the look of and leave a flirt card for them. Don't forget to collect your flirt cards by 11pm! We will also upload the photos onto the website on Monday so you can contact anyone you missed on the night!
