How our Dating Events Work

If you are new to dating events, take a look at our quick guide to how our dating events work. Our methods are tried and tested and enjoyed by thousands of happy customers every year.

Search Events

You surf the “When the Music Stops” site to learn all about the various types of events available. You can search for events in your region or local town.

Choose the sort of event you would like to take part in, we specialise in Speed Dating but also host a variety of other exciting formats that may suit your personality well. From wine tasting, to dinner parties, breakfast events to murder mystery events. We’re sure that we’ll have something that you will thoroughly enjoy!

Register for an Event

You register for an event through our website, or by phone on 0845 2303199. To ensure we have equal numbers of men and women, you MUST register before the event and will rarely accept registrations on the night itself. If in doubt, give us a call.

Arriving at the Event

At some events we use a match sheet, so you show up EARLY for the event to get your name tag, match sheet, question sheet (a set of ice breakers to ensure the conversation keeps flowing) and an explanation as to what to expect on the night.

On your Match Sheet, you decide who you’d like to know better – whether it’s as a Match or on a Friendship basis initially.

At our Dinner Parties and more informal party nights there is no documentation whatsoever, you can just chat away to your hearts content as you meet other like minded singles around the table.

Taking Part and Making the Most

Typically you will meet between 12 and 30 other singles in less than 3 hours during a series of 5 – 6 minute short meetings (longer during our Dinner Parties). We facilitate the whole thing so you are guaranteed to meet most people there in a safe and fun way. To maximise your experience, we usually hold events in private or semi-private areas at an upmarket venue, during the evening you have the chance to rate the people that you have met as either a friend or a match – and they do the same. Where necessary, at the end of the event, everyone turns in their completed Match Sheets to the Event Coordinator.

After the Event, with or without your hangover..

In 48 hours or less, you’ll get an email or text message with the results of your matches. Chances are you’ll have one or more matches (more than two-thirds of speed-daters match at least one person).

After that it’s up to you – Now that you’ve attended an event, your chances of making a more lasting connection is greatly increased. If you are interested we will then continue to inform you of events that might suit you in your area, so you can keep coming and having fun or we’ll take you off our database when you have found a long term partner.

All we ask is that if you do find a partner at one of our events and you have a happy ever after story, you let us know! It makes all our hard work very rewarding to hear your success stories!

Find Love With Singles Events in Nottingham

 There is no doubt that it’s getting harder and harder to find a great person to settle down with.

Some people seem to do it easily while it’s a lot harder for others. For many people it’s very hard to find enough time to meet quality people. All of us at some point want to be able to find a great partner to settle down with but we all know it’s not that easy all the time.

Especially if you are someone who works in a busy career where there is a lot expected of you. Good news is that there are ways that you can meet a lot of new people in as short a timespan as possible and it’s via singles events Nottingham.

Finding the time to meet new people is only half the battle because you could end up making time for this area of your life but still not meet a quality person to share your life with. So what you need to do is maximise your dating efforts so to speak. You need to be able to meet new people in a way whereby you can maximise your chances of meeting the right person.

Here are some of the prerequisites you need to be able to fit:

  1. They need to also be single and looking for the same things as you
  2. They need to have similar interests to you
  3. They need to be the kind of person you’d settle down with


At a singles event Nottingham there is a high chance you will end up meeting someone who fits these three prerequisites. You will meet many single people at the various events and this means by default you’ll end up with a high chance of meeting the right kind of people for a relationship.
