About the Event

Orientation: Polyamourous singles or existing polycules

Age: 18+

How does it work?

You arrive, you sign in and meet your host for the night. Then you can get a drink, relax into the night with a few nibbles and start to meet some of the other attendees. The kick-off starts once everyone arrives. Unlike the heterosexual or monogamous singles speed dating the polyamorous speed dating attendees choose to come in their existing polycules or as single people. The polycule moves around the room as a unit in the way that a single person does and each unit moves until everyone has spoken with everyone regardless of gender or orientation - it's about making connections more than anything and taking it forward from there.

The process is repeated until intermission, which runs for about 15 minutes so everyone can refresh themselves, stretch their legs and have some more nibbles (individual plates will be served at intermission in line with COVID-safe policies), and then the dating recommences in the same format as above until finish. At the end of the 'dates', the host will collect all the 'match cards' with your decisions on them (if you want to meet someone again you tick 'yes', if they say yes to you too then Sen will share the contact details of your matches the day after the event). 

Once the chats are over and you have handed in your match cards you can stay and hang out at the Wicko with your new/existing friends as long as you like or until they kick us out for venue closing.

Existing couples or polycules are charged a surcharge to cover per person expenses but because they are operating as one unit there is an overall discount applied. Please specify in the text field when purchasing your ticket how many people are in your polycule and their details.

Why Speed Dating?

Speed Dating is a great way to get out and meet new people. It's a dynamic and fun way to tell whether you have chemistry in person, can hold a conversation and "click". It's about deciding whether or not you would like to go on a full date with someone without any pressure. 

The Sen philosophy?

Relationships of all kinds take work. They start with a spark of interest and are built by working together to find time for each other, having common interests to create something meaningful. They are not instant. They don't happen in a 5-second decision. They happen by giving people a chance.

Sen's philosophy is that all people have value and all people have something meaningful to contribute to a relationship - and that those relationships don't have to be strictly romantic, they can be friendships, complicated friendships, true love. The people that you meet speed dating might not be your true love or might not fit your ideal list or tick all your boxes - but they might be cool and have lots in common and so if you make friends with them then you also have access to their whole friendship network. So speed dating with Sen isn't just about finding someone to date, it's about finding your people.
