Speed Matching


Once you have booked your ticket, you will receive an email confirmation with details of the event. Should there be any last minute changes to arrangements we will email you on the day, so please check your emails before setting out.

We kindly ask you to arrive 15-30 minutes before the scheduled start time as we aim to make a punctual start at all our events. Why not get your evening off to a great start by completing the check in formalities in good time (The early bird catches the worm as the old saying goes, so if you turn up in good time, you may well be able to check out the mingling singles before the speed matching begins!!)
Next, your host will welcome you as a group and explain how everything works. You will be provided with a scorecard, name badge and pen. Then, the exciting part of the evening begins!

One of our lovely hosts will seat you at a well spaced out table for two where you will date the person across from you for six minutes. After the six minutes is up, a whistle will sound, marking the end of the date. We admit it, six minutes doesn’t sound like a lot of time to chat to someone but trust us it is spot on. Six minutes is long enough for you to get a general vibe about each other while still leaving you intrigued, and (hopefully!) your mini-dates will leave you wanting to spend more time with them! Well that’s the plan, isn’t it?!
 Next, you will then have one minute to discreetly indicate on your scorecard whether your Speed Match caught your interest or not and whether you would like to see that person again by marking either ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘friend’.
 The women remain seated and then men then pay their respects and move around clockwise to the next date, until everyone has completed their dates. There will be a short break during the event where you can get a beverage at the bar, freshen up or just take a breather. We appreciate that everyone needs a quick break to compose themselves and their thoughts and this is why we make sure everyone is happy before we continue with the speed matching again.

Once the speed matching event is over, we encourage guests to stay around to talk to others! This can be a great part of the evening and we really recommend you to take advantage.
 Before you leave, we’ll collect your scorecards and review the matches. Your matches will be e-mailed to you within 24 hours of the event finishing. Don’t be disheartened if you don’t get any matches. We have different people at all our events, so next time you could meet your perfect date!
