About this event

Join us for an exciting evening of connection and fun at our Speed Dating events!

Open to everyone aged 18 and over, this event is a fantastic opportunity to meet a diverse group of people in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Our speed dating session is designed as a mixer, allowing you to chat with everyone on a one-to-one basis. We take care of all the detail swapping, so you can focus on making meaningful connections.

How it works

Upon arrival, leave your name and contact details at the info desk. We'll provide you with a name tag and a note card. Start the evening by relaxing with a drink, then engage in one-on-one conversations with fellow attendees. Use your note card to jot down impressions and indicate whether you'd like to swap details with each person you meet. After the speed dating rounds, enjoy a casual mixer with our signature cocktails, offering more time to socialize.


We strive for inclusivity and have various speed dating sessions to suit different preferences. At The Queer Emporium, we're committed to maintaining a trans-positive space and welcome all identities. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at hello@queeremporium.co.uk.

This event is proudly hosted by The Queer Emporium Foundation, supported by funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
