What to expect

Your host

Hiya I'm Leyla the lovely Leeds host for SpeedDater. I love hosting and have done for over 15 years. 
Chemistry of the Evening
Raise your glasses, you fine and eligible singles, you are in for a wonderful night of dating. Meet like-minded singles face-to-face at our busy speed dating event at The Alchemist, Greek Street. 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 meet people in real life. During the event, you will be going on between 8 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. There will be a break halfway through the dating for you to refill and recharge.

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?

The venue

The Alchemist

Discover a cocktail bar and restaurant unlike any other! There’s something about Leeds that calls out to us as a natural location for The Alchemist. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the home of the royal armouries and we like the sound of clashing metal? Whatever it is, it led us to bring the Alchemist’s special blend of the darkly adventurous and unconventional to the very heart of it. Inside our Greek Street venue lies a cocktail bar that’s a temple to our dark brand of molecular mixology and a restaurant that makes dining with us a touch more exciting.

Travel information: Leeds city centre, Greek Street, 5 min walk from the train station.

Bea is absolutely brilliant, she will give respect and attention to everyone and, at the same time set between herself and f/m daters. She was keeping the event up and safe for everyone.
