Talking to Strangers #25

Hello everybody,

Thanks to everyone who came to Talking to Strangers #24 it was an amazing turnout and a night filled with great conversation.

Anyway, time to schedule Talking to Strangers #25.  As always, we'll all be talking to people we have never met before, hopefully having some philosophical and provoking discussions fostered by questions which we'll provide throughout the evening. 

The aim is to create interesting conversations with new people so as well as providing some things to think about, we'll also move you around at regular intervals so you can talk to a few different people. As always, we make a small charge of £4.

We look forward to seeing you there.

With best wishes, 

Tom, Rebecca, James and Phil

    I really enjoyed it! I agree with the comments about the noise but apart from that it was very well organised and it was fun to talk to strangers ;-) Thanks for organising!

    I love meeting new ppl so was looking forward to this first time visit. But it wasn't to be. Very tired that day, but after a brief work function earlier fought the rain to get there, carrying work laptop. Was noisy enough upstairs where the music was, but the meetup room downstairs was chock-a-block with people (150 in a small room within kissing distance of each other?) and the noise of conversation was deafening! (Was there a place to check in the laptop back for safety?). So I didn't come in. Hopefully next time - as I love the concept.

    Unforetunately it was very disappointing for me as after a hard days work I was really anticipating a great evening in a more suitable venue. However without sounding like a broken record it was far too noisey and too dark ,totally unsuitable for myself and even more so for people
    with English as a second language. I also don't know what the £4
    payment is for.I feel genuinely cheated.

    Tom, thank you for a fun (yet noisy) evening!

    May 2, 2014

    • Tom

      Thanks Ruth, and so sorry again about the noise. Next time it'll be better I promise.

    Hands down one of the best meetups I have attended. The semi-structured idea to get people talking made the event very very enjoyable - and lubricated the conversation. Met a lot of really interesting people. Definitely coming back!

      Thanks Eugune, glad to hear you enjoyed it

    nice people to talk with, lots of fun, but way too hard to hear/shout in a pub.

    May 2, 2014

    • Tom

      Agreed Alex, I'm so sorry about this. We were let down by the venue. Next time, I promise we'll be somewhere better.

    Thanks to everyone who came yesterday, and apologies for the awful noise. I'm so sorry if you found this difficult.

    We had scoped out the venue before, on a night when it was silent, and had been assured that it would be the same on the night, and any music would be turned down for us.

    When we arrived, this was refused and we kept requesting it all night, achieving brief moments of respite but then the music would suddenly go back up again.

    I'm sorry if this affected your enjoyment of the evening. If you had a truly awful time, or it made you have to leave early, and you're still (understandably) annoyed, please do contact me directly as I'd love to hear from you.

    And I promise that next time we'll be back to a venue we know and trust where this sort of thing won't be an issue. We hated the noise as much as you did!

    With best wishes,

    Tom

    Sadly I left early as I didn't want to spend the evening shouting at strangers.

    Hi All, Just wanted to let you know that I've read up the tube strike is due to finish this evening, so travel should be much easier by tomorrow night. Look forward to seeing you all at the Token House.

    With best wishes,

    Hi,
    I could be there just at 9:30-9:45 pm, not before, due to my working time.
    Is it too late?

    April 29, 2014

    • Tom

      Hi Francesco, we'll still be going at that time but things might be a bit more informal, so it's up to you.

  • Krizia C.

    Hi, I was wondering if we needed to pay the £4 fee beforehand, as I know it works differently for every Meetup group. :)

    April 28, 2014

    • Tom

      Hi Krizia, no...just come along and we'll collect on the night

      Just head to the Token House, Peter and we'll either have posters up to direct you or people to do so.
