Event details

Festival in The City
Warm beer, live music, running amok in fields, glitter, long drops, wellies, mud, dancing, tents, silly fun – it’s a great British institution. Music festivals!

Join us on dry land as we celebrate high summer at Festival in the City. Don’t worry there will be no mud or portaloos just over 150 of London’s finest singles enjoying a music festival themed singles party with a twist!

Expect festival themed lock and key, optional speed dating, glitter station, top DJ & more! Our Singles Parties are the perfect way to meet huge groups of solo Londoners in one night. With over 150 guests in attendance, SpeedDater offers you a chance to find your perfect match and meet lots of new people. Come with a smile and an open mind and you never know who you may cross paths with.

Lock and Key Party
The evening will begin with our entertaining ice-breaking game to help introduce you to as many singles as possible. We’ve organised a lock and key ice-breaker, the perfect way to spark up that initial conversation. All women will be given locks, while the men will be given keys. Your job is to find the one that matches with you. If you find your match, you're in for a chance of winning some incredible prizes. You can match with more than one guest, so make sure you meet as many people as you can.

Optional Speed Dating
In a separate room, speed dating sessions will be in full swing. You’ll be able to sign up at the event when registering.The speed dating sessions are a perfect way to get to know the other guests in three-minute intimate bursts. The 30-minute speed dating sessions are designed only as a 'taster' at the party. If you’re too nervous to join in on speed dating, don’t worry! You can always just grab a drink and enjoy the Lock & Key. Remember, our speed dating sessions are always popular, so we would advise you to arrive by 7:15 pm to guarantee yourself a place. The sessions are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.

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'll be able to reconnect with everyone via our site, from 11 am the following morning, for FREE! At Speeddater, we understand how important post-event communication is to your success story. 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?

Make sure your profile is updated. Include a photo of yourself so you're visible to those attending the event. Once the event opens online, reach out to those you wish to see again, and continue to build that connection.

Please note: Pay on door payments are charged at the maximum ticket price, and not the early bird discount. To take advantage of the early bird offer, you must pre-book and prepay using a debit/credit card.

Meet your host Sarah
By Day and by Night I help people find love!
  • The event was fun! I had a great time!
  • Great event, thank you! One suggestion: the venue had quite poor acoustics which made it quite loud and difficult to hear others at times.
  • It was a fun night. Great way to meet people
  • well organised
  • Very enjoyable
  • Nice mix of people
  • The blindfolds added a fun little twist to the event. It also added a slight element of silliness which I found cut through some of the tension that I felt last time I attended one of these events.
  • Good event. I would encourage others to take the plunge
  • Everyone was friendly and I had fun, but the actual speed dating started 20min late.
  • It was good meeting people face to face.
  • There were a few less men than women I would have liked to have received a free drink included in the price of the ticket
