What we're about
Welcome to Derby Focus Activities Club.
We are a long standing club with the objective of providing the opportunity for members to meet new people, try new things and to socialise and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment.
Unlike most groups on here, we charge a membership fee (£10pa) which gives us the ability to underwrite and organise events such as dances, holidays, coach trips, etc. We have a very broad range of events and activities, ranging from pub nights and theatre trips through to Abseiling, Canoeing, Walking and a book club. We welcome and encourage members to introduce us to new things. A committee of elected members deal with the admin of the club but the events are run for and by the entire membership.
If you wish to know more about us, including how to join, please visit our website –
Club Open Nights - Come along to one of our “open” events where we invite anyone interested in finding out more about us to come along and meet us. You’ll get the chance to meet members, ask any questions you might have and find out much more about us. These events are –
First Tuesday of every month.
New Members meal (or just join us for a drink) at 7.00pm at the Thomas Leper in Iron Gate, Derby. You’ll find us upstairs with a small sign “Derby Focus Activities Club” on the table.
Second Wednesday of every month.
Club Night - at the Flower Pot, King St. Derby. We hold our monthly committee meetings here early evening and then from 8.30pm it becomes an open club night. It’s a particularly good night to meet active members, as most of the committee usually stay for a drink after their meeting. You’ll find us in the room on the left just past the bar.
Fourth Wednesday of every month.
Club night - at the Flower Pot, King St. Derby. No committee meeting before this one but you’ll find us in the room on the left just past the bar from 8.30pm. Sometimes we move out into the main room, but if we do you’ll see the “Derby Focus Activity Club” sign on our tables.
We ask everyone interested in joining to fill in a temporary membership application form, just providing us with name, address, e-mail & telephone number. You are then a temporary member (no fees) for three months. We ask you to attend 6 events to get to know us (and us to meet you), before deciding if you wish to become a full member.
Please do NOT apply to join this meetup group unless you have already become a member of Derby Focus Activities Club, as your request will be declined.
We use the meetup site to organise our events (that are open to members only), and also to advertise our club for new members, (through our website).
Thanks, I hope you come along and join us.
