This group is about connecting British and Irish expats living in Chicago. Whether you are a British or Irish Expat already living in Chicago, or are about to jump the pond, then we'd love to meet you! We have casual drinks down a pub once a month, find places to watch the football and rugby, celebrate British holidays and basically do everything we can to help each other make the most out of living here.
