XMAS PARTY! @ The Bedford Pub (Balham)

  • This location is shown only to members

The Bedford pub (in Balham) will still be doing 'Thank Funk it's Friday!' in December so I thought we could go there for our Xmas party!  The manager told me that he's recently booked a Soul nite too - so I think there'll be a choice of music in different rooms!

If you're joining for dinner beforehand then please RSVP separately for the dinner meetup event.

The pub is a short walk from Balham station (tube & train).

Thank Funk It's Friday

Thank Funk It's Friday 11:00 PM to 02:00 AM

Free entry club night, best of dance, disco, soul, r & b, pop, house and more.

Hope to see you there!

The Bedford

This group has a no-show policy:

In order to provide a place for all interested members & to be fair to the hosts & to the venues, there is a no show rule for our meetups:

- if you have RSVP'd yes and don't show up or
- if you change your RSVP from yes to no within 12 hours before the meetup takes place

you get 1 no-show point. Once you have reached 3 points within one year the meetup organisers have the right to exclude you from the group, should they choose to do so.

Also, if you are a no-show to an event then the host of that event has the choice to exclude you from their future events if they wish; hosts are not paid for their time, they give up their own time to organise & hosts events so it is extremely frustrating when there are no shows.

This rule is here so everyone can enjoy the events - you and the hosts - it's common courtesy to let hosts know if you can't make an event - so please ensure you keep your RSVP up to date.

Thank you.

    Had a brilliant good boogie-woogie, fun, lol time. Loved being silly, laughter and good conversation - great for the soul. Danced, roboted and did a hilarious M. Cyrus. Thanks y'all for good company and Shereena for organising it.

    Great turn out & there was a lovely atmosphere, both in the pub and with our group...was a chilled/fun evening...the music wasn't what I expected from their usual club nights and the 'mixing' was awful, but the music wasn't bad and we had fun...whether it was chatting and/or dancing - so all in all a success, I hope! Thx to everyone who came, hope you enjoyed it!

    Great hosting Shereena & thank you for checking out why the other room wasn't available. You were a star ! X

    Great time...a few strange choices by the DJ but still had fun and great to see so many people! Thank you Shereena for putting in the effort to arrange things for everyone!

      Pleasure, it's worth it when I know ppl appreciate it and are enjoying the events!

  • Rachel

    Well....Shereena my bones were right! Great night. I agree the music was definitely hit and miss - but this tends to be quite typical in my experience with the Bedford.

    1 · December 14, 2013

    • Rachel

    I'm so sorry I didn't change my RSVP earlier, there's been a family incident so can't make it. Have a great time partying tonight!

    Was looking forward to this but have a horrible chesty cough. Was hoping I'd feel better later on but unfortunately I don't. Hope you all have a great night.

    They need to sack this new Dj, he cant mix tunes properly or judge the room to keep the dance floor buzzing. I didn't really see anyone from the group as the place was packed with people on their Work Christmas parties.

    December 14, 2013

    • Shereena

      I didn't like the DJ this time either...I was in and out from dancefloor and our reserved area at regular intervals and there was always someone from SLS sitting in our reserved area...there was a big group of us on the dancefloor - shame you didn't see us...did you come very late though?...as we were in the reserved area until after 11pm...shame we didn't connect - see you next time

      December 14, 2013

  • Judith

    Am looking forward to dancing and catching up with SL socialites old and new, I can't believe the new yr's just around the corner, am looking forward to new beginnings :-)

    I'm wearing a teal/turquoise dress with grey boots (& I've got long dark hair)...come look for us near the reserved 'raised area'.
    See you later!

  • Barbara

    I am sorry to change my answer last moment but I am really unwell today and I am afraid I won't be able to come. Hope someone can make it instead of me !

    December 13, 2013

    • Shereena

      Hope you feel better soon Barbara

    ..the plan is to stay in the main bar til 11pm and then those that want to can go into the club area from 11pm...entry is free so ppl can mingle from the pub to the club etc...they have a late licence until 2am!

    December 12, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
