This group is for people in Budapest (whether native, ex-pat, or visitor) who would like to join others for evenings at concerts and operas, and perhaps some socialising in the form of drinks and dinners too. This meetup group will have at least one event a week, very likely more. Whether you're a classical music expert or an opera buff, a casual fan or curious newcomer, any age, any nationality, you're welcome to join us. This meetup group is purely social and cooperative. There are no fees.
TICKETS: Our members usually need to obtain their own tickets for events, via the web links provided in the event's description, although if you're a regular, I'm happy to get your ticket when I get mine.
I announce events around 5 weeks ahead and purchase tickets when it becomes necessary. Some events sell quicker than others. You can buy your own tickets from the links provided for each event. If you don't have a printer I am able to print for you if you send me the pdf. Or you can simply show the ticket PDF on your phone at most venues.
IT'S NOT SUFFICIENT JUST TO RSVP: This is not like going to a bar, you'll need to plan ahead as concerts very often sell out. I ask that you comment on the event and let me know if you're buying your own ticket or would like me to help you get one. I'll answer any questions you might have in the comments. Not commenting and not turning up for an event you've signed up for shows that you are unreliable and you will be removed from this meetup.
THE ORGANISER: I'm a British man in my 50's, a kind of digital nomad, currently hanging out in Budapest and enjoying this great city and its culture. I enjoy going to see operas, concerts and theatre, and of course socialising in good company.
YOUR MEMBERSHIP OF THIS GROUP... is dependent on you taking an interest in its activity. If your 'last visited' date exceeds 4 months I'll assume you are no longer interested in this group's activities and remove you from our membership list (no matter how beautiful your profile picture is!) This will save you receiving unnecessary alerts and emails from me and meetup.com. If you find you've been purged, but are still interested please do rejoin.
