Event details

SpeedDater runs the BIGGEST (and best!) singles parties in London. Our parties typically attract around 150 guests with an equal gender split, that's loads more than any of our competitors!

All the activities listed below are included with your ticket - no extras to pay for 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.

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.

Music and Entertainment
DJ will be playing the best in disco, funk, soul and more until 1am.

Drinks

The bar will be serving drinks throughout the evening until 1am.

Dresscode
Smart/Casual/Dress to impress. Smart denim and trainers are allowed but no sportswear.

After the Singles Party

The Monday after the event you'll be able to view profiles of the other attendees and send them messages for FREE!

Check out the photos from our Halloween Party!


You can also view photos from our famous parties with Cosmopolitan and Men's Health, and the Metro newspaper! Plus check out our sizzling Valentine's Party, our fabulous March Party, and our lively May Party!

Sue

Since university, London has been my home and I don’t think I could live anywhere else as I’d miss that everything is on your doorstep – theatres, restaurants, museums etc. A group of friends and myself make it our mission to try as many new places as possible (diaries and bank accounts permitting!).

We asked Sue a few questions to get to know her better

  • What is your weirdest talent?
    I can recite the all the books of the New Testament in order (I must have been a goody two shoes at Sunday School!)
  • What is the one thing guaranteed to put a smile on your face?
    Crazy cat videos on YouTube
  • Who’s your celebrity crush?
    Hugh Jackman

Meet your host

Ghislaine

I’ve lived in London on and off for 12 years, no other city quite beats the choice, diversity and vibe but I do still dream of skipping off to sunnier climates! Things that make me tick - galleries, immersive theatre, live music, festivals, dancing with my mates, cycling, swimming and getting out in nature and exploring new places.

We asked Ghislaine a few questions to get to know her better

  • What is the one thing guaranteed to put a smile on your face?
    Sunshine! I was brought up in West Africa and get sad without it!
  • Who would play you in a life movie?
    Maggie Gyllenhaal – she’s quirky and cool – how I like to think of myself!
  • Who is your celebrity crush?
    Eddie Redmayne is just beautiful, even when he’s playing a woman! He’s just got that something.
