Chemistry of the Evening
Raise your glasses, you fine and eligible singles, you are in for an exciting night of dating. Meet like-minded singles face-to-face at our busy speed dating event at Issho, a beautiful chic bar overlooking Leeds city centre. Issho means together and we could not be happier to be working together with them again. Issho is Leeds’ go-to drinking destination, serving up a selection of original cocktails, a full sake list, Japanese beers & a wicked choice of Japanese whiskies.. It's time to relax, make real life connections and meet your perfect partner in crime!

Here, at SpeedDater we know that chemistry only happens in person, so our events are perfect for singles that want to make real life connections.
During the event, you will be going on between 10 and 12 mini dates lasting about four minutes each. Our professional hosts and well-organised events make meeting people easy and lots of fun. Come with a smile and an open mind, you never know who you could meet at one of our events.

What to Expect: Mix, Match, Date
When you arrive, our lovely SpeedDater host will welcome you and sign you in. You will be given a badge number that will match a table in the room and the ladies stay seated while the men rotate from table to table until they meet each woman. To help you remember all participants you will have a card to mark down all individuals that you like. You`ll also have breaks for drinks and chit-chat.

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 will find out who you mutually matched with and can get in touch again via our messaging system. Don’t forget about Speeddater’s guarantee - if you didn’t meet someone you liked the first time your next singles event is free! What have you got to lose?

At Speeddater, we understand how important the post-event communication is to your success story. Remember it's totally free to send/read messages to/from all the guests you have met at the event.

Meet your host
  • Lovely venue and organisation
  • Really fun night. Would do something like this again. The only thing is that the information we got before hand about having to be at the venue BEFORE 7pm was wrong and I felt really awkward waiting for the event-otherwise would be 5 stars
