This group started in 2012 to help connect British and Irish expats who live in Chicago. People should join who are British/Irish expats living in Chicago, expats planning the move from across the pond and friends of expats. Anybody who likes British culture are also welcome! We hold regular pub nights, watch international sports, explore different restaurants, got to local sporting events, see British comedy/bands/theater and play social sports.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
