At Vault Festival 2018

Meet Market



The experience takes the form of speed dating, however it is not dating. You do not have to be single to attend.

We break down all facets of human interaction, attraction and body chemistry to find out exactly what makes a great interpersonal connection. Each participant will undertake several quickfire activities, each a non-verbal exercise.

The aim is to see the essence of people, when all day to day details are stripped away- no “what do you do?”, “what is your name?”, or “what are you looking for?”, instead getting to know each other in a more intimate way.

You get out just as much as you put in. This is an audience led immersive experience so your full attention and participation will make or break the show. Meet Market is designed to bring you into a new state of mind in order to help you connect with those around you in new ways.
