What we're about

Are you ready for something different? Do you find it hard to break into groups chatting when you go out? Wish you had a wingman/wingwoman? Wouldn't it be cool if we went to some of the best venues as a group to improve your chances of chatting to other people? So this is not a dating service as such (but hey, what happens in Derby stays in Derby!) Rather it's a social night for singles around once a month. We will meet in venues early evening so you can have a conversation or watch a band. Then it is down to you and who you are with, stay with the main group or go and paint the city red (It flipping needs it!) If something clicks you can move on. We are all grown-ups here, we will not be supervising anyone. We will be 100% LGBTQ+ friendly and include suitable venues. Please do not use the group to approach other members as it is intimidating, the idea is to meet as a group and go from there.

It's the Saturday Social - a Mad March night out!

The Five Lamps

This is a gig in two parts, with something for everyone! First, from 8:00 PM onwards let's meet for a quiet chat and food if required from The Five Lamps pub menu. (free parking available, 5* Hygiene, legendary Owen Taylors meats) website fivelampsderby.co.uk Secondly around 10:30 PM [ish], we'll walk for 5 minutes or so into Derby to 'The Blessington Carriage' (AKA The Bless, 36 yrs same landlord). This is one of the best and lesser known music venues that is friendly at a cosmic level. First-rate real ales and choice of wines and lagers and a clientele from students to mature people from all walks of life. This is a treasure trove where the hours will fly by! Bring your dancing boots. website blessingtoncarriage.co.uk

It's the Saturday (is it Spring yet?) Social - a double event

It may not be Spring until Wednesday the 20th but we don't hang around waiting for things to happen! Once again a double venue meet. First at The Golden Eagle, a favourite drinking hole on Agard St for drinks (duh), excellent Meat pies from HR Owen butchers (if there are any left) and superb ales including their own delicious Titanic brewery beers. Live music from 9 pm (ish) with Double Cross (info thanks to the legendary Mick Moonshine's Derby Gig Guide at MickMoonshire.co.uk) Then for the night Owls and dancing fools (Yes that's me, Ralph!) walk five minutes away to The Orange Tree. This other nightlife gem is a favourite for parties, cocktails, music (Mainly quality soul/disco) and dancing, not to mention some elegantly dressed clientele and a covered smoking area in case you catch fire. So get dolled up and join us for a fun-filled evening and into the small hours. You know it makes sense! REMEMBER We do not charge membership or meeting fees. RSVP if you can, if you can't then just turn up! Drivers can park free on Friargate (or anywhere else in Derby) after 8 pm. The car park on Bold Lane DE1 3NT a few minutes away is not free but it is more secure https://goo.gl/maps/YJFYVLEbN9F2
