How it works is our friendly professional hosts will greet you and they will settle you in by briefly explaining the format of the Speed Dating evening. The Speed Dating in Newbury will commence with the speed dating then taking place for the remainder of the evening. How many dates will I get at a Newbury Speed Dating event? You will normally get between twelve and fifteen dates depending on the venue location at one of our Speed Dating in Newbury events. Occasionally we go up to twenty dates.
