Singles Events Canberra Guide
Last revised: 20 January 2023
There are so many varieties of singles events, and some good companies running them. Trivia nights are great for brainiacs, singles parties have games to meet people, group dinners let you chat with many over dinner. Fun events with other singles. Here is our guide...
Generally, a table of 8-10 people work together to try to answer more of the 10 rounds of 10 questions than the other tables. The pub ones anyone shows up to. The pub ones you may sit on your own table or you can join another group there. Usually each table has a couple of trivia nerds and everyone else just drinks, chats and chips in answers where they can.
They might hold an '80s party. People show up, possibly dressed in the theme. On entry you might get a card with a cartoon character on it. You are encouraged to talk to everyone until you find someone with the matching card and you get a drink. Those sort of activities encourage people to chat. If you've been to their speed dating, you might know some of the people there. It is a bit more interactive than standing around a club.
You buy a ticket to a dinner. There might be 10 singles, 5 ladies, 5 fellas. You chat over the meal. Some companies organise and rotate seats between courses, some don't.
Formal balls still happen a bit. Deb balls, uni balls, charity balls etc. Very occassionally singles event companies run them too. It's a bit ol' skool, but great fun. Live like a princess/prince for the night. Masquerade balls, formal balls, under the sea balls, chocolate balls etc. It's good fun.
