FAQs

Who comes to Speed-Dating?

Most guests are professionals who want to improve their chances of meeting the right person. They’re usually down-to-earth, working professionals with a variety of interests and hobbies but do not usually get to meet many new people due to work commitments or small social circles.

Speed Dating is therefore ideal for those who lead busy lives and want to meet new people in a fun, safe environment. It is also a great way to network.

What is the age limit?
The event is open to anyone aged 21-35.

How long does it last?
Each schedule will be slightly different for every event but we will generally allow 2-2.5 hours for the dating then more time after should you wish to stay, have some drinks, and get to know your dates better.

Is there a dress code?
No, you can wear anything you like but obviously you do want to give yourself the best chance so dress to impress and above all, wear something that’s comfortable for you. Men in work suits are fine.

Can I bring friends?
Unfortunately not. We understand that meeting new people can be nerve-wracking but we do not want to compromise the comfort of our guests by having non-participants watching over them! We can assure you that everyone will be just as nervous as you are and we will do everything to ensure you feel at ease. If your friend is single also, why not get them to join in the fun!

Alternatively, they are more than welcome to join us for the breaks and afterparty!

How do I book for an event?
By clicking on the ‘Booking’ page of our website and selecting the ticket(s) you require. You will be transferred to Paypal where you can make your transaction safely and securely. Once booked, you will be sent a confirmation email from Paypal, please print this out and show it to us at the event.

Will my bank details be safe?
We make all our transactions through PAYPAL which is a well-established third party portal so your details will be safe and secure. We do not have access to any of your bank details.

Can I pay on the day / at the door?
Unfortunately not. We need guests to pay in advance so that we can make the best preparations for the night. It is also to ensure that only serious people come and to avoid drop-outs which make it unfair for other guests.

If I can’t make it but have already paid, what can I do?
If you notify us 48 hours in advance, we will issue you a full refund. Alternatively, you can get someone else to take your place providing they are of the same sex, but please let us know via email.

What information is given to my matches?
Only your first name and email address will be given to your matches.
