Speed Dating and Singles Events

A unique way of meeting that perfect partner

Are you looking for a safe and unique way of dating to find that perfect partner or soul mate and feel sure that meeting face to face is the key to success? If so then When the Music Stops could be the ideal dating site for you.

For more than a decade we have been giving attractive, personable individuals of all age groups, the opportunity to meet others in a safe, facilitated environment, where all participants* have been checked out and verified as genuine. Something that is very hard to find with online dating sites.

We run a range of exciting events all around the UK, from Speed Dating, to Dinner Parties, Black Tie Events, Weekend Breaks, Party Nights, Singles Holidays and much more, with all age groups included too.

So if you’re looking to meet that someone special and you’re concerned about the bad press that has surrounded online dating for a while now, or you’re disillusioned with endless emails and messages that don’t ever seem to get you anywhere with other dating sites then we believe our quality speed dating and singles events could be a real alternative, where you get the opportunity to meet other singles face to face right from the start.

Below you will find our list of current singles and dating events, there is no expensive joining fee that you are required to pay up front, and joining When the Music Stops is completely free to join and takes only a matter of minutes. To register, simply click on the create account button above, follow the simple steps and you’re then free to book any of our singles events or speed dating events you wish, for just the price of a single night out.

It really is that simple and whether you’re coming alone (thousands do!) or with friends we will make you especially welcome and ensure you have an absolutely brilliant time. So please join us soon and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events.

Dating horror stories

Christine’s painful story – a personal dating nightmare

Christine Spencer is an attractive and intelligent woman aged 57, she works in a professional job as a Learning and Development professional and after being divorced for some years she knew the dating arena well and felt she was a pretty astute judge of character when it comes to men, in her own opinion she was extremely unlikely to get herself involved in scams and find her being relieved of her life savings.

The fact that she did, was probably down to the plausibility of  conman Christian Barber, rather than Christine’s naivety or vulnerability and this time it was not an online dating scam either, as Christine, from Manchester, met her predator as she stayed in a Derby based hotel overnight on business but the salutary lessons about caution and keeping yourself safe do still apply just as much. It also illustrates the value and power of meeting partners, who have been checked out and verified as genuine, before you meet them, which is always our aim at When the Music Stops. (more…)
