Hi and welcome to East London Lesbians
We organise regular and one off events to suit all social & cultural tastes. If you fancy a quiet midweek trip to the cinema in a small group, for example, or a drink in a pub where you can connect with more people, you have come to the right place.
Our regular Monthly Meet ups include:
• A popular monthly Monday night at the Castle Pub in Walthamstow Village; a low key, gastro pub with an open fire and a great stress free relaxed venue (1st Monday of every month) *RSVP policy non-applicable
• A Women's Group run by the East London Out Project providing support and guidance for lesbians in a social setting. ELOP also offer a range of services which can be accessed via this event (3rd Monday each month)
• A monthly Book Club (3rd Thursday of every month) at the same cosy Castle Pub which welcomes up to 12 members each month.
• A monthly Supper Club (4th Wednesday in the month) that tours the eateries of East London (size of group depends on restaurant/pub policy)
There are also many other one-off cultural and social events scheduled on our calendar.
We offer some events that are unlimited in numbers and some that are smaller with a fixed number attending plus a wait list. Smaller groups are arranged for people who prefer a more intimate event and also on occasions where we are limited by numbers e.g. restaurant table sizes. You will always be expected to book your own tickets for fee paying events but we try and make arrangements so we can sit together.
Please RSVP YES only if you wish to join us. We ask that members treat RSVPing to a meetup with the same level of commitment they would an arrangement to meet a friend. You would not just fail to turn up unless it was a major emergency. It's horrible and disheartening to be stood up and it may mean others on the wait list who want to come are blocked from doing so. We (Molly and Linda) organise the group in our own time and Molly (Founder) pays the annual organiser fees.
On this basis, if you do not attend a meet up without changing your rsvp to no or cancel at the last minute on two occasions your membership will be cancelled. Obviously, this excludes emergencies! We just ask you let us know in good time that you can't come!
The only event that does not operate this strict policy is the Monday pub night at *The Castle where we appreciate you RSVPing yes but it's no problem if you don't make it.
We encourage members to host events that they are interested in and we would be delighted to support you if you wish to host an event that interests you in an area/venue you're familiar with. Examples of events that members have run include basketball and walks in Epping Forest.
