Are you looking to make new friends? How about mingling and mixing with other like minded people of the same age group at our Valentine's day special!

We’ve tested the waters and had success (and lots of fun) with our Speed Friending socials this year! So to suit the occasion we have planned something BIGGER, BETTER and double the FUN!

We welcome you to our Speed Friending social for members between the ages of 20 to 49!

No matter what your age is, get ready to make some new friends this festive season! (There's no need to be alone!)

Tickets in advance: 


In our speed friending we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships.

One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group.

Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate.

Speed friending is the easiest and most effective way to build connections and relationships in a short amount of time.

Here’s how it will be set-up:

1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other.

2) Anna will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. She will indicate when you should move to the next person.

3) We will meet from 6.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 7.00pm.

4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 7:00 pm onwards and continue till about 9pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway.

5) Our function room is booked for Anna/Meetup.

6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. Anna will welcome you and help you get comfortable.

7) We have 18 meetup groups in London with over 113,000 members and we will be inviting members from most of these groups. You will meet a lot of new people. Members of other groups who RSVP are included as guests of the organiser in order to give you an idea of expected numbers.
