Wine Tasting at Vivat Bacchus—November 5, 2019
This event is an incredibly reasonable price singles wine tasting that takes place at Vivat Bacchus. Vivat Bacchus is a restaurant that is South African in origin and offers rustic food and artisan cheese, as well as a wide selection of excellent wines.

The event is geared explicitly at those between the ages of 41 and 55 and has an even amount of space for men and women. It’ll give you an excellent opportunity to try a lot of the highest quality wines available in London while also getting to mingle with guests that have your passion for wine and food in common.
Bowling Singles Night at All-Star Lanes—November 6, 2019
This event will give you a great place to both have a little fun and show off your competitive side and meet singles in the area with similar interests as you. SpeedDater rents out private lanes for the event, and gives you time both to bowl and to break for refreshments and mingle. The lanes provide a range of retro-American food options, as well as cocktails and great music.
Quiz Night at The Driver—December 2, 2019
Quiz night is one of the classic event options that is offered by Speed Dater. It gives you the possibility to show off your knowledge of specific subjects and play collaboratively with other singles on your team. As it is not a one on one event, it also provides you plenty of time to get to know a lot of different people at the event and float around, making both friends and romantic connections.
The location of quiz night is at The Driver, which is a gastropub and boutique venue. It combines modern elegance, a roof terrace, and an incredibly fun atmosphere for an all-around positive experience.
Christmas Party at Samuel Pepys—December 14, 2019
This Christmas Party has a lot going on and is one of the classic events that SpeedDater throws on an annual basis. It has a fun ice-breaking game called the Lock and Key Party, where all the women are given locks, and all the men are given keys and have to find their match. It also has optional speed dating that will occur during the party in a separate room and features three-minute dates, so those in attendance have a chance to find out what they have in common with other guests.
The venue, as well, is incredibly romantic. It has a great view of the Thames and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and The Tate Modern. SpeedDater books the entire venue so that those in attendance can wander around and mingle freely and privately.
