How the Lock and Key party works
On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly
hosts, 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 are 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 or Key serves as an ideal ice breaker
giving you the chance to easily introduce yourself without any
embarrassment. If the key doesn't open the lock, not to worry - onto
the next person - you are on course to meet a large 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 do two things – firstly, issue
you with a new lock or key and secondly, give you a raffle
ticket to enable you to win prizes. So, the more raffle tickets
you get, the more chance you get of winning one of the prizes.
Our Lock and Key format has a high ratio of keys that open
locks so it is highly unlikely that you won't suffer the
embarrassment of not getting a lock and key match. The beauty
of the Lock and Key party format is that you can also play it
cool, and wait for people to approach you.
