WHAT IS FAST FLAT MATING?
Think speed dating for tenants and flat hunters – with delicious food & live music in a relaxed environment. A happy flatshare is all about the people…
Pea Head’s Fast Flat Mating is a flatshare meet and treat night!
Meet lots of tenants/ live in landlords in one night.
Come with friends.
Check out other Hunters and see if you would like to become ‘Pack Hunters’ and search for a flat together.
No awkward interviews, just lots of meets and tasty treats.
Chat and engage with up to 20 potential flatmates – in one night.
Make finding a flatmate an enjoyable night out with your current flatmates and friends.
Facilitate selection process by narrowing down viewings to just one or two.
Minglers can be Hunters or Seekers who do not wish to take part in the fast flat mating but would like meet people at their own pace. Minglers are invited to join later in the evening.
NEW TO EDINBURGH?
Even if you aren’t Hunting or Seeking, come along as a Mingler to enjoy the eveing of chilled live music and meet other like minded people new to the city.
HOW IT WORKS – ON THE NIGHT
7.30 THE FLATMATING BEGINS
At 7.30pm sharp, the 1st round of flatmating begins. HUNTERS have 4 minutes at each table to chat and get to know the SEEKERS before the bell sounds and it’s time to move to the next table.
SEEKERS are invited to bring photos of the property and a flat mascot or item that describes the “vibe” of their flat which is a great ice breaker for the conversation.
There shall be a short 15 minute break for refreshments and more complimentary treats to taste, before the 2nd round begins.
7.00 SAY YOUR PASSWORN ON THE DOOR…
On arrival guests will be greeted with delicious goodies and supplied with numbered sticker(s) according to their status:
Room HUNTER and/or Pack Hunter?
GRAB A DRINK AT THE BAR
Relax and enjoy the tasty offerings as SEEKERS take their seats at correlating numbered tables.
8.30 MINGLERS (Not Mingers!) ARRIVE
At 8.30pm more HUNTERS and SEEKERS will arrive to mingle after the fast flatmating event has finished offering even further flatshare options.
8.45-10pm SWAP DETAILS AND ARRANGE A VIEWING
Time to enjoy the live music, speak with any potential flatmates further and make those all important arrangements to view the property. This is also a great opportunity to meet other people new to the city and possibly pair up to become Pack Hunters for a flat together.
Pea Head’s Fast Flat Mating in Edinburgh was held 25TH FEBRUARY 2014 at Edinburgh’s Loudons Cafe; a family run business, known for its great coffee, fresh baking and relaxed atmosphere.
