About speed dating
Our speed dating evenings are great fun. For best results we recommend you come along with an open mind and don't take it too seriously. You'll have a great time, you'll meet lots of single people and you might meet someone special.
What happens at SpeedDater singles events
When you arrive, you will find a friendly Host in a SpeedDater T-shirt. Your Host will register you for the event and give you a scorecard, a name badge and a pencil. You are then invited to join other guests at the bar to chat before the event starts and have a drink if you'd like to buy one. Once everyone has arrived the SpeedDater Host will explain how speed dating works and answer any questions.
Then the dating begins. Usually women will stay seated while men will rotate every 3-4 minutes when the bell rings. After each date participants mark on a scorecard whether they would like to see that person again. At the end of the evening many people stay around to chat to the people they've just met.
After the singles event
At the end of the evening everyone takes their scorecards home with them. The following day (or whenever you get chance), guests will enter their ticks online on our website. Simply log in with your username and password and click the 'my matches' tab. Once you have entered you ticks you will see if you match with anyone. Remember it's FREE to send/read messages to/from all the guests you have met at the event through our secure website. All our events are guaranteed! If you don't meet at least one person you'd like to see again your next event is free.
Feedback from SpeedDater singles parties and speed dating events
"I went speed dating with a mate and had a really good night. The host made us feel really welcome and comfortable. Nice girls, easy on the eye, event was well organised! I met up with one of the girls after the event as well. Wish me luck." Luke, London Babble Mayfair.
"I find meeting guys out hard work. Everyone is drunk! Speed dating is a good idea – everyone is there for the same thing. Had a blast!"
"Great night, venue was good, was worried before hand as it was my first time but as soon as it started it was easy. Not cringey at all, had some random chats and people were friendly. Would definitely go again."

"Nice friendly atmosphere. Stayed on a while after the event finished and had chance to speak to the guys I like – do this if you think 4 mins is too short! Very a fun and social night, something different."
