Speed dating event at Everglades Hotel

Share this article

A speed dating event will take place at Derry’s Everglades Hotel next month.

A series of ‘mini-dates’ for the 25 to 45 age group will be held at the hotel on Friday, March 7, commencing at 8 p.m.

The event is advance bookings only, so it’s a case of first come, first served, as availability is limited to a maximum of fifty people.

The event is being organised by a new company, First Impressions. Its Events Organiser, Gary Watton, has considerable experience of speed dating events, having participated in similar events in both Belfast and London.

Gary says his “mission” is to bring such events to new locations.

“I think it’s fair to say that speed-dating events have been a bit thin on the ground in the north west,” he says.

“I’m sure there are many young singles in this city and surrounding areas who would like the opportunity to try out this novel means of engaging with new people.”

Speed-dating involves a series of five minute ‘mini-dates’ with about fifteen or twenty members of the opposite sex.

“There is ample scope to make a connection and build a rapport with a few individuals,” says Gary.
