SpeedDater runs the BIGGEST (and best!) singles parties with London's most eligible single professionals. Join up to 150 people at our great social night out. Meet new friends and explore potential romances.

Final release tickets are selling at £25! Lock & Key, optional Speed Dating, plus our special ice-breaker are all included in the ticket price. We'll be giving away great prizes and there are 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. You then 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. First impressions count, dress to impress!

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.

The venue

The Pepys
Stew Lane (Off Upper Thames Street)

With spectacular views across the Thames that take in a range of iconic London buildings – including Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre & The Tate Modern – The Pepys is a hidden gem in the heart of the City. One of only two original public houses facing the river in this area, it takes advantage of it’s location with balcony seating & floor to ceiling windows in the bar & restaurant. Recently refurbished in early 2015, the interior comprises exposed brickwork, designer wallpaper & contemporary art.

SpeedDater has exclusive use of the entire venue for our parties. Please note this venue does not have a cloakroom. A rail will be provided free of charge, however it will be unstaffed and is to be used at your own risk.

Also please be aware that food will not be available at this event. The venue is closed during the day, and will be opening especially for our guests at 7pm. We therefore do not advise guests to arrive early for a pre-party drink.

Travel information

The Pepys is a short stroll from Mansion House tube. A few members have said they have found the venue difficult to find, so please print off the following instructions: turn RIGHT out of Mansion House tube. You will now be on Garlick Hill. Walk a few minutes down Garlick Hill till you reach the end. Directly in front of you will be the busy main road Upper Thames Street. Look to your right, you need to cross the road by going over the footbridge. Once crossed, step off the stairs and go to your left. Stew Lane is a small lane on the left. Walk all the way down it and The Pepys is on the right.

Meet your host


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


I'm a country bumpkin who's been living in the big city for nearly 8 years now. I'm quite loud and crazy which I blame on my Italian Side. When I'm not working as a host I am working as a classical crossover vocalist, which is pretty exciting.

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

  • What is your weirdest talent
    Maybe not a talent but I have such a long tongue that I can touch the bottom of my chin!
  • Who would play you in a life movie?
    Probably Jennifer Lawrence (we've both got mad down to a T)
  • Who is your celebrity crush?
    I'm a bit greedy so either Miguel Angel Silvestre or Reggie Yates
