Lock and Key
Stand back Cambridge singles, SpeedDater is coming in with a Lock & Key party to beat all others this summer! Join us and 150 other singles for the singles party of the year! With love in the air and true romance everywhere, this event is a must.

Prepare yourself for the BIGGEST and BEST Valentine's Party in Cambridge! Celebrate the evening with other fabulous singles just like you. SpeedDater has had the busiest Valentine's party for the last 20 years running, so join us for the party of the year and see why we are Cambridge's favourite singles events company!

Lock and Key Party
The evening will begin with our entertaining ice-breaking game to help introduce you to as many singles as possible. We’ve organised a lock and key ice-breaker, the perfect way to spark up that initial conversation. All women will be given locks, while the men will be given keys. Your job is to find the one that matches with you. If you find your match, you're in for a chance of winning some incredible prizes. You can match with more than one guest, so make sure you meet as many people as you can.

Optional Speed Dating
In a separate room, speed dating sessions will be in full swing. You’ll be able to sign up at the event when registering. The speed dating sessions are a perfect way to get to know the other guests in three-minute intimate bursts. The 30-minute speed dating sessions are designed only as a 'taster' at the party. Remember, our speed dating sessions are always popular, so we would advise you to arrive by 7:15 pm to guarantee yourself a place. The sessions are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.

And after the event?
The day after your speed dating event, you can log in to our secure website and click the matches tab. You'll be able to reconnect with everyone via our site, from 11 am the following morning, for FREE! At Speeddater, we understand how important post-event communication is to your success story.

Please note: Pay on door payments are charged at the maximum ticket price, and not the early bird discount. To take advantage of the early bird offer, you must pre-book and prepay using a debit/credit card.
