SpeedDater runs the BIGGEST (and best!) singles parties with London's most eligible single professionals. Join up to 120 guests at our great social night out. Meet new friends and explore potential romances.

Tickets starting at an early bird price of £20! Lock & key and optional speed dating are included in the ticket price. No extras to pay for apart from drinks.

Lock and Key Party
A fun ice-breaking game. All women will be given locks and all men will be 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 40 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 speed dating till past 2am! The 40 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.

Smart casual. Denim and trainers are allowed.

After the singles party
The Monday after the event you'll be able to view profiles and send messages for FREE to other guests who attended the event.

Please note: Pay on door payments are charged at the maximum ticket price (£25) and not the early bird discount. To take advantage of the early bird offer you must prebook and prepay using a debit/credit card.

Also - due to our normal booking pattern, we often have a ladies’ waiting list for our events. Gents - the sooner you book, the more ladies’ places we can fill. Ladies - our tickets sell out in advance because we are worth the wait! If there are no places available right now, add your name to the waiting list and we will contact you as soon as the gender split has re-balanced.

Meet your host


I’ve been living in London for one year now. I moved from my hometown of Glasgow last year. I love to travel and try my best to pass as a local wherever I go. I have a major love for colouring hair too, whether it’s mine or someone else’s!

We asked Ritch a few questions to get to know him better

  • If you were a kangaroo and had 3 things in your pouch, what would they be?
    I’d have to carry earphones, passport and mobile phone.
  • If you had to be an animal what would you be and why?
    I’d choose to be a really tiny bird because they’re so agile, cheerful and are almost always with their cheerful, chirpy mates.
  • What is one talent you always wish you had?
    I’d love the talent of being a natural cook. Instead I’m a cook that stresses and destroys the kitchen.
