What we're about

This is a group for people who would like to find love and make new friends in London. You are bored of being solo and would like to change that. You are either new to meetup or have been on meetup for a long time and are tired of how the social activities have deteriorated in the other meetup groups in London. Here is how we will do things differently

1) We will always have hosts at all our events. You will always be greeted by someone at all our events and introduced to others.

2) We will minimise no shows by requiring attendees to pay a deposit in advance. No shows are misleading and not fun for organisers nor for members.

3) We will not disguise organisation costs in opaque ticket prices, commissions from bars or inflated set menu prices. We will instead ask for a small charge of a few pounds to help us manage the group and its activities.

4) We will strive to attract a high quality membership who prefer higher quality venues and events. We will not be driven by happy hours, free food etc...(as all of these are eventually balanced out by much higher prices later)

5) We will constantly request members to help us host events and take a lead on activities so that we have energy and variety.

I very much hope that you will join us and create a vibrant social community which is close knit and high quality.

Day 2 – After breakfast you will be taken on a walking tour around the city with a local guide. Day 3 – Day at your leisure at Havana. Day 4 – After breakfast, head to Santa Clara, a key city in the Cuban revolution. See a huge statue of Ernesto Che Guevara, which commemorates his death and those who were murdered with him in Bolivia and a museum dedicated to his life, which you will have time to visit if you wish. In Santa Clara experience a more authentic Cuba, with an abundance of local restaurants and music venues in this small, friendly town.

18 to 39 - Speed friending! No pressure way to make friends! Over 40 expected

Please join us as we help you make new friendships with both ladies and gentlemen without any of the pressure, shyness and nervousness normally associated with meeting new people. This is for ladies and gentlemen between the ages of 18 to 39. (It is fine if you are a few years either side of these parameters) For our last Speed Friending social we had over 30 members present and this time we expect over 40! Please click on the link below to purchase your tickets in advance: Fatsoma: http://fatso.ma/GHjI OR Eventbrite: https://26speed.eventbrite.co.uk Please be aware that this meetup has an event fee. It costs you less to attend if you purchase your tickets early. Tickets start at £5 and increase to £10. If you prefer not to buy advance tickets then you can pay £15 cash when you attend. WHY SPEED FRIENDING? In our speed friending, we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships. One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group. Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate. Speed friending is the easiest and most effective way to build connections and relationships in a short amount of time. Here’s how it will be set-up: 1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other. 2) Anna will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. She will indicate when you should move to the next person. 3) We will meet from 6.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 7.00pm. 4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 7.00 pm onwards and continue till about 9pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway. 5) Our function room is booked for Anna /Meetup. The Jewel Bar has 3 or 4 function rooms over 3 floors. Please be sure to read the events board to know which room is ours on the day. You can also ask the security guard on the ground floor. 6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. Anna will welcome you and help you get comfortable.
