Speed Friending: Make new friends in Perth (Ladies only event)

Are you wondering how to meet new people, make new friends and grow your social life in Perth? Well making new friends has just got easier with Speed Friending.

It works similar to the Speed Dating format but it’s all about making new friends, purely platonic!

* This specific event is a female only event, however, we hold other mixed and age group events.

*This event requires a minimum of 20 people to go ahead (early bird tickets get a $5 discount).

* After the event finishes feel free to join us at lunch at The Shoe downstairs where you'll have an opportunity to chat to those you didn't get to meet during the event. (This is optional).
