Valentine's 2023! Over 330+ people will join us for this super sociable party in the heart of London.

Featuring our fantastic lock & key icebreaker and a totally equal male to female ratio you are sure to meet and speak to a huge number of number of people and have a fab night out.

The best bit? Everyone is single, a similar age and there to meet people in the spacious surroundings of The Anthologist, moments from Bank Station.

There's prizes to be won as you seek out the person with the key that matches your lock (or vice versa).

Work the room, meet people, try your locks and key and when you find a matching pair you could be in for a prize. It's hilarious and a lot of fun.

Post event, simply choose the people you liked and our matching system will tell you who you mutually matched with. Get in touch again via our messenger and the rest is up to you.

This really is the perfect place to meet people this Valentine's. You just need your ticket! Book now, we will sell out fast.

The Lock and Key Icebreaker

Nothing breaks the ice quite like it. We give girls the padlocks and guys get the keys and the aim is to find a matching pair. Try your key with as many locks as possible (or vice versa) and you're bound to find a match.

When you find a matching set, both you and your 'match' head to our desk where you'll enter our prize draw to win some great prizes at the end of the night. You also get a new lock or key so you can carry on meeting people.

The more people you meet the more chance you have of winning a prize and of course meeting someone you like too. It works amazingly well as an icebreaker and you'll be amazed how many people you meet. It's a lot of fun!

The lock and key will run until 10.30pm when we'll draw the winners. The party doesn't end here, but by then the ice will be well and truly broken.

Matching and Messaging 

Now, you're bound to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed. At this event, there's no need to ask for phone numbers. Upload a picture to your profile and you'll be visible on our matching system both during and after the event.

Simply scroll through and select the people you want to see again and our system will reveal everyone you mutually matched with the following day.
