The business, which is located in Balham (London), was founded in 2003 and has many years experience in the speed dating and singles events sector.

I always carry a book around in the often vain hope that I’ll get around to reading it at some point during the day – and obviously I took one with me to last week’s speed dating evening. Some participants had brought books with them, displaying them as though they were back at school doing 'show and tell'.
