Our First LGBTQ+ Speed Dating Event

It's been 50 years since the first Pride event in the UK. In celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month, we decided to organise a Speed Dating Event for everyone from the LGBTQ+ community! And what a great night it was.

We teamed up with University of Nottingham's Matchmaking Society to deliver a night to remember, hosted by Revolution Hockley!

20 guests attended, grabbing their free Vodka Mixer Drink and Shot on arrival. We were thrilled to see the chatting had started before the event had even begun!

With everyone sat down in their couples, the timer was set!

We could feel the love in the air as we watched each couple have their 3 minute conversation, before swiftly moving on to their next date. Each were given a booklet, in which after their date, they could note down if they'd like to see their date again; either as friends or something more!

The booklets were then handed back to us at the end, meaning we spent the next morning matching those who wanted a follow-up date together!

Call us Cupid!

Surrounded by heart balloons and prompt questions, the dates continues late into the evening. With no pressure to find romance, we saw friendships blossoming too. The halfway-point break saw conversations flow, creating such a positive, bubbly atmosphere!

Sound like something you'd like to participate in??

After the success of our first one, we're hosting another Speed Dating event, this time for straight couples as requested! Details will be released VERY soon so keep your eyes peeled for more information!
