Speed-Friending is a night of sweet conversation where you can drop the small talk and ask the questions you REALLY want to ask. We use the word ‘speed’ in the loosest possible sense. Real connection can't be rushed and neither will we!

Taking inspiration from the 36 Questions to Intimacy, this kind of platonic friend ‘dating’ gives you a menu of profound, intriguing, and spicy questions designed to inspire authenticity and deepen your connection with those around you.

You’ll be guided through playful ice breakers, and into a series of 10 minute conversations with strangers, in groups of 2's and 3's throughout the evening and landing into a free flowing social.

You’ll leave here with new friends and inspiration for how to guide conversation into juicy and interesting territory.

Your night will be led by the delightfully playful Dani Tonks.

 Everyone is welcome to join. Discrimination or prejudice of peoples gender, sexuality, relationship expression, disability or ethnicity  will not be tolerated under any circumstance.

REFUNDS POLICY Please note, we do not arrange refunds or exchanges. When possible we encourage reselling on Ticketswap.

*This night is designed by Gaia Harvey Jackson, co-founder of True Nature and workshop facilitator. To find out more about her work and current offerings go to gaiaharveyjackson.com
