Meet other single people with shared interests while enjoying London's extraordinary science exhibitions, talks, stargazing and other events.
(Please note this is a paid membership group - see more at the end of this description.)
Our events are eclectic but might include talks or exhibition at the Royal Society, the Dana Centre, the Royal Institution, Institute of Physics, UCL or Imperial lecture series etc - these are almost always followed by a trip to a pub or bar afterwards. We also do regular visits to the Science Museum Lates and The Natural History Museum After Hours and the Regents Park stargazing nights. We do occasional 'Just Social' pub events too and a regular monthly 'Just Social' board games afternoon. And we love going to science fiction movies.
Although the interest areas in science and geekery are very broad, I started the group because
a) I felt it's still way better than the generic singles groups on here as at least members have similar interests to begin with and
b) it's a great way to find people to go with to the amazing science and geek events London has to offer.
The group is for people who:
like science! There are lots of generic singles socials groups on Meetup that do pub nights, dinners etc so please don't only join us purely to meet other singles if you're not interested in science.
are single! There are lots of very cool groups that are just for cultural/science/social events (**see the list below**), but I've set this up precisely for people who want to meet single men and women and don't want to have to work out whether another member is single...this group is specifically designed for those of us who don't have a partner to go to events with. So please respect that.
don't want to waste an evening at a singles event where there is no return on your time if you don't fancy anyone - yep, we've all been there. This way, we have a great evening out either way.
Please do suggest events, all members are able to schedule events. I for one am keen to discover things I might not think of on my own, so please feel free to contribute ideas.
And oh - please have a picture and complete your Profile Questions. It helps us identify each other, creates a friendly community, attracts new members and helps continue conversations in between Meetups.
It's free to join this group and come and try out our events. If you like it and stick around for more than 2 meetups, then Full Membership costs only £15 for a whole year. Our feedback is that even just as a listings page, this is more than worth the money! I hope you will join us and I really look forward to meeting you.
Other Meetup Groups
Please respect that this group is a SINGLES group; it's hard enough meeting like -minded singles in London without the confusion of identifying who is single. There are lots of other Meetup groups for non--single people to do sciencey social stuff, such as The London Funky Nerd Alliance and Science Museum Lates. There are also specific geek interest Meetups like London on Board and Interplanetary and Space Affairs. The Post-Apocalyptic Book Club welcomes singles and non-singles and they sometimes do sci-fi film trips. There is a big overlap of members with all these groups and all the organisers know each other and go to each others' events and sometimes our groups join up, both inadvertently and deliberately. So please don't try and sneak into the Geek Chic group just to go to our events if you're not single. It's not fair on people joining to meet other singles. We appreciate your consideration.
