What we're about

Join us for affordable varied sociable activities and events in and around Brighton and Hove with the over 55s in mind. The emphasis is on getting out, meeting new people and socialising with people our own age group. We welcome singles and couples.

We are planning events in pubs, cinemas, members homes, public places, walks and and visiting places of interest.

We have been going now for about 6 months and have had some great meetups. We welcome members ideas and people who wish to contribute particularly as organisers.

We are conscious it sometimes can be difficult joining a new group. We go out of our way particularly to welcome first timers - so be prepared!

Please note: We request a profile photo of yourself and confirmation that you are in our required age group. We ask for £1 for each person per Meetup as a contribution towards administrative costs.

Have a look at our past meetups, be prepared to join the noisiest table in a restaurant or pub and come along.

We look forward to meeting you.

A reading of the play “Friends of Enemies” with audience feedback

Friends of Enemies is an Arts Council England funded “work in progress” play, written by Hearth Centre director Polly Wright. This performance is a rehearsed reading by Polly, as part of the development of the production. Listen to the story and give your feedback on an original work! The storyline: “After having discovered some letters from an Italian Prisoner of War to my grandmother in North Wales after he was placed on my grandparents’ farm after his capture in WW2- I have now written a first draft of a play on the subject of POWs in North Wales. The story focuses on the interactions between Mario, a Northern Italian POW and farmers Dai and Elizabeth Williams plus echoes of the political tensions of the time and today” For more detail go to https://exeterstreethall.org/event/friends-of-enemies/ Doors open 7.00pm, performance starts 7.30pm.
