Lock and Key Party
A sure fire ice breaker! Women are given locks and men are given keys. You then circulate looking for someone who fits your lock or key. The aim of this is to get you speaking to as many people as possible.
How it works
On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly host, known for the night as locksmiths :) who will welcome you and check you in. Our Locksmiths will then give you your personal lock or key - so that's a lock if you're female and a key if you're male. These a re quite light and won't weigh you down. You are then ready to start mingling and enjoy the party.
Once you're comfortable, simply approach any member of the opposite sex to see if the key opens the lock. As you are move around the Lock and Key party, you will meet many different people and trying one another's Lock and Key serves as an ideal ice breaker giving you the chance to easily introduce yourself. If the key doesn't open the lock, not to worry - onto the next person - you are on course to meet a good number of people in one night - remember it is a party after all.
If the key opens the lock, pop back to the locksmith's desk and the locksmiths will issue you with a new lock or key.
What if my Key unlocks a Lock?
This will happen! With our format, you have a very high success ratio. You have a one in four chance of a key unlocking a lock.
Remember as and when a key does unlock a lock, simply have a lovely chat and then proceed to the next person. If you find someone you really like; we have sectioned off an area in the venue where you can have an intimate chat, plus we have some awesome masks for you to play with. That's all part of the fun, but most of the fun is in meeting new people. Expect to meet a good number of people at our Lock and Key events.
