Let’s show our BRITISH PRIDE in the Old Pueblo!
Whether you’re married to a Yank, attending university or just working in the Old Pueblo – let’s not lose our BRITISH CULTURE of lovely cup of tea, football, pints and of course, fish and chips.
TUCSON BRITISH EXPATS was founded June 2012 after original members noticed the amount of cars showing their BRITISH PRIDE in Tucson, and the numerous Brits we have "bumped into" out and about over our years in Tucson.
This is a Kid Friendly group, so unless otherwise stated in meetup details, children are welcome.
This group is generally for Brits living in the USA, not a place where all who love the British countries and culture come. Even though the USA and UK are similar, culture wise it is very different indeed. The purpose of the TUCSON BRITISH EXPAT is to create a great home away from home and expose the future generations to their British roots, too.
Tucson needed a local social club to bring Brits together. We realize the crisps, chips and, of course beer will not be the same but hopefully we can make it feel a little bit like home with the good company with others from across the pond.
Please note that Meetup groups do cost the organizer run so an annual membership is requested from all members. Annual Membership dues are $10.00 per adult member (not including spouse) and memberships run one-year from payment date. Children under 17 years old and younger are included in dues. New members are allowed one trial meetup event and memberships are due at the next meetup attended. What do the dues cover? They cover the cost to run the MEETUP.com website ($144 annual fee), annual supplies for the group and meetup events, paying for the website we are currently setting up, prizes for door or quiz type events. The dues will not cover additional per head costs, for example, costs accrued renting space at public businesses, local parks or non-potluck MEETUPS.
The goal of the TUCSON BRITISH EXPAT group is to meet at least a once every other month in Tucson and surrounding areas. We meet at local pubs, restaurants, members’ homes and maybe a road trip, too. Please spread the word to any others Brits in the area. We depend on word of mouth!
Check out our Facebook page - Tucson British and we have a Facebook group called Tucson British Expat for Brits to chat all things British.
Note: Members can create MEETUPS too within this page. Members are always welcome to set up a MEETUP and we encourage members to do so. There needs to be 3 members RSVP yes to make it official and then an email is auto sent out. Remember to list date, time and location. The member organizing the event must take responsibility for that event.
