Christmas Social

Every year Big Ideas hosts a social event in December instead of our regular activities. It's a good opportunity to meet some more folks who are involved with pub philosophy and related events. We'll have quizzes, puzzles and other intellectual stimulation for those who like that sort of thing, and there'll be a hot buffet provided by Dave, our ever-supportive landlord.

There'll be a £5 charge to help cover the pub's costs; you can pay by PayPal right here when you RSVP or get a ticket from Rich or Nathan at the next Different Class or November's Big Ideas event. These events are a bit of an opportunity to do pub philosophy the old-fashioned way and we always look forward to them; we very much hope to see you there!

    Dear Organisers, I apologise for missing your last event. It was my fault to promise something I could not deliver. I will try to compensate it in the future as I still love your proper political discussions. Also, I need to repay you £5 which I will promise to do on the 11th January 2011. My apologies for the inconvenience. Magdalena

    In previous years we've just had a small gathering at the pub: this year's Christmas do was a bit more organised and I think that was a good thing. The Wheatsheaf were, as ever, excellent hosts. I enjoyed having the time to get to know some people I've known by sight for a while but to whom, since Big Ideas nights are always a bit hectic for us, I've never had the chance to talk properly.

    I hope others enjoyed it too. See you in the New Year, Merry Christmas...Nathan

    :) :) :) :) :) I'm averse to cheesy Xmas events and pub food. This social was refreshing, challenging, genuine and super-friendly! Hugs all round!

    An excellent evening as proved by it still being busy when the pub shut at 11. The quiz was a great idea and the rest team won. Had good conversations with old and new faces on the crisis of capitalism, man's relentless pursuit of sex and the architecture in Minsk.

    Great company and enjoyed the quiz. More veggie food next time would be good.

    Great fun, thanks for organising! Quiz was fun even if I was crap at most of it ;-)

    So PayPal just won't work - sorry. We've gone ahead and booked food for the number listed here (and more who've bought tickets elsewhere). Let us know if you can't make it. Otherwise, looking forward to Friday...see you then

    I'm pretty certain to attend, barring illness, tube strikes, death, etc. Happy to pay £5 either way.

    PayPal / Meetup integration is not working for this event...I'm trying to fix this. In the meantime I'm going to have to confirm numbers with our venue and hope that most/all of you turn up and pay. Thanks to Terence and Christina for spotting the missing PayPal link and sorry for taking so long to reply!

    I also haven't paid but of course will pay on the night. I might have to cancel due to a work thing in which case I'll make sure I change my RSVP in good time.
