Lock & Key party!
We recently held our first non-speed dating event, at Laverys, Belfast – our ‘Singles Lock & Key party’.
The concept is that each female will be given a small padlock on arrival and each male will get a key which will be chosen from a tray of keys. The key may or may not open one of the padlocks in circulation.
Participants would then mingle and use the lock or key as an ‘icebreaker’ – a way to initiate conversation.
We really enjoyed hosting a different event and trying something different in Belfast. As far as we know these events haven’t happened too often, if at all, in Belfast in the past.
The night itself went well – we welcomed guests and gave them their lock or key. It was a pretty open venue and allowed for people to either sit in groups or move around freely. This meant that participants could spend as long as you wanted talking to someone or as short as they wanted. If a matching lock and key were found then the couple would return to us to claim their raffle ticket (this would give them an entry into the raffle where they could win prizes later that evening.
