Speed Dating

Vanik Council (UK) has successfully run events for Singles since 1982. Speed Dating events take place in major cities in the UK, twice a year and are open to Jains and Gujarati Hindus of all ages.

Next Event

  Next Speed dating date : 22 May 2022, 11am to 4pm

  • Last event attracted 240 people and we had to turn down some applicants.

  • This is the biggest speed dating event for Gujarati Hindus and Jains. It is open for all ages. Many people have found their partner at this speed dating event, maybe you will too this time. 

  • The event finishes with a full vegetarian meal.

  • It is your moral duty to inform Vanik council if you find partner due to our speed dating         



Navnat Centre, Printing House Lane, Hayes, UB3 1AR



Like each year, the price starts low and then gets higher as we get closer to the event. Each price range is limited to 80 tickets, so the prices are


  •      £25(+ booking fee) until 31st March 2022 or once 80 tickets have been sold,          whichever is first.

  •      £30(+booking fee) until 30th April 2022 or once we have sold out.

We know that the event date is quite far away, but if you book now, you will get the lowest price and if you cancel before 1st May 2022, you will get a refund of your fees - no questions asked. Don’t be one of those people that get turned away, book today


After the event, we will pass to you the contact details of the people that you have selected on the day. We will send your contact details to anyone that has selected you 


Vanik Council is always pleased to hear when our events lead to marriage. Therefore, we would be most grateful if you can inform the organisers  of successfully finding a partner from this event

We invite boys and girls of all age groups from three months prior to the event. To achieve 250+ candidates we give early-bird incentives: the earlier you book, the lower the cost. See the Poster below for more details.


Details - what you can expect

Once we receive your application form, we send confirmation by e-mail. Nearer the time we give clear instructions for dress code, parking and food.


Behind the scenes we will be:

  • allocating every participant to their various speed dating groups (which will be done according to age groups)

  • preparing lists of participants and their details to hand out to everyone on the day

  • preparing badges for identification

  • preparing forms for you to return to us with your choices of potential partners

  • we will take a fresh photo on the day which will be provided as part of the result, together with all the usual information 


On the day

  • We give everyone a badge with name and colour code

  • We will take a photo of everyone who is present and will be provided with the result.

  • We also give general details of all attendees and a tick form before speed dating starts. We divide all attendees into six or more groups of 20+ men and 20+ women

  • Each date will last 2 -3 minutes

  • You will be allocated to a group matched closely by age

  • There will probably be two rounds of speed dating

  • After the two rounds, a meal will be provided and free time to mingle

  • For those who are older, we will arrange for you to meet and socialise together in a separate room


After the event

  • We collect your tick sheets with your selections

  • We compile your matches and email you the results with a photo.

  • You are then free to communicate with your matches and hopefully form life-long friendships.


We appreciate your feedback following the event, and your support for future events. Please share any good news of engagements with us – we like to celebrate in your news and are pleased to hear that speed dating is working. Please e-mail your feedback.

Vanik Council also provides Matrimonial Service.
