Saturday 22nd April, 7pm
The Station, Silver St, BS1 2AG
Rendezvous is a brand new social event at ‘The Station’ bringing together like-minded people from all over Bristol for an exciting mix of live music, a dedicated bar and a new speed dating event!
There are four different age categories for speed dating so you can select the best group for you and remember that the speed dating is just part of the evening, there will be every opportunity to meet other like-minded people, hit the dance-floor or catch up with old friends at the bar.
For those of you who are married or in a relationship you can join us for the live music and dancing while you support your single friends by purchasing a social-only ticket.
Pre-registration is essential for speed-dating and will include a complimentary drink on arrival from the bar. There will be no speed-dating tickets available on the night so book early to avoid missing out.
Tickets are available via these links and FAQs are below

If I am dating, what should I expect the format to be? How does it work?
Depending on how many have signed up in your category, we aim to give you around 15 dates. This can be extended to more dates or equally there might be fewer if the category is smaller. You have 2 ½ minutes to chat to the person opposite before you hear a signal to tell you to move on. You will be given a sheet with the ID numbers of the people you date (indicated by the sticker they will wear). This is to endure no personal details are given out to anyone without your permission. You simply tick them if you are interested in having further contact with them. After the dating has finished, all daters must hand in their tick sheets (whether you have ticked anyone or not). The Rendezvous team will work out if you have matched with anyone and let you know as soon as possible via email.
When you arrive, you will need to show your ticket and some photo ID at the desk. You will then be given your ID number for the evening. For non-daters, you will just need to show a ticket at the door. The rest of the evening is left for you to have a good time with friends and maybe chat a bit more to those you dated...or maybe those you didn't get to date!
What are the timings for the event?
Doors open at 7pm - dating from 7:30pm until around 9pm. There will be a band and a DJ for dancing until 11pm.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
The event is for over 18s only. ID is required. All persons dating will require age related ID to confirm their eligibility. Unfortunately those over 40 years cannot date but can buy a social ticket to the event.
What age category should I be/date in?
You can only date in an age category that your own age is in. ID will be required to prove that you are in that age category. The age categories chosen have been proved most successful in previous events. Remember, there is the whole evening of socialising before and after the dating so you can chat to anyone you want!
How do I know I have been matched?
Everyone will receive an email after the event whether you have been matched or not. If a person you have ticked has also ticked you - that’s a match! You will be provided with the email address of all your matches.
What happens if I decide I don't want to attend? Do I get a refund?
Please let us know if you will not be attending as we will need to take all of your details off the database. We are so sorry but you will not get a refund for your ticket.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Tickets are not transferrable. You cannot give your ticket to any other person as they need to be signed up in the correct category and have given all their personal contact details for matching purposes.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
No, the name on the ticket must match the ID and the attendee.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is on street parking around the venue or the nearest NCP is Rupert Street
Will there be food/drink?
A bar will be available for you to buy drinks. There will also be bar snacks available.
What shall I wear?

We look forward to welcoming you on the night.
