Valentine’s Day
Raise your glasses, you fine and eligible singles, you are in for an exciting Valentine’s night of dating. Meet like-minded singles face-to-face at our busy speed dating event at Lock 91. You will be in the Attic and Study area upstairs. 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 find someone special in real life. During the event you will be going on between 15 and 25 mini dates lasting about four minutes each. Our professional hosts and well-tried organisation make meeting people easy and a lot of fun. We are passionate about helping singles to find love in real life. Come with a smile and an open mind, you never know who you could meet at one of our events.

What to Expect: Flirt, Laugh, Match
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?

The venue

Lock 91
9 Century St,
M3 4QL

Located in a 19th century lock keepers cottage lovingly restored to its former glory (and then some) Lock 91 is tucked away at the end of Whitworth street near Deansgate Locks, up Century Street and is one of Manchester’s little gems.

As you would expect from a cottage, Lock 91 is full of beautiful features and has a multitude of rooms this truly is one of the most exclusive and secluded spaces in Manchester. Over the 3 floors Lock 91 serve an extensive selection of innovative cocktails, sharers, draught larger, real ales, cider a varied bottle range and a elegant selection of wines.

Lock 91 encourage everyone to sit long, talk lots and laugh often and we agree as there is no place quite like this, in fact you could call it home, find out for yourself.

  • Had a great time would like it to do it again sometime in the future that's if I don't get a match from the first event^^ thoroughly enjoyed every second^^ Thank you for putting this great event together^^
  • fantastic yes and host was fantastic
  • Was fun but the space not very well handled as we had to shout at each other. There was an empty room behind us with only 1 person that could have been used to accommodate at least 2 more. All good though.
  • Fabulous, enjoyed every minute of it. Well organised, great people attended.
  • I had a great time, 4 minutes didn't feel like enough. Lovely night.
  • fun and friendly bunch. the host made us all feel as comfortable as we could and created a nice atmosphere.
  • i liked it because the set up enabled everyone to mingle quite well. I i thin i would of liked a few more minutes at each station.
