What we're about

This is a new group for young professionals in and around Derby. We use the word 'young' loosely (20/30s and those that feel young). We don't really mind about the professional bit either, it just makes us sound fancy.

We are starting this with a view to make friends and help others expand their social network.

We ask all members to keep a recent photo of themselves on their profile so we can recognise them at events. If you don't have a profile photo you may be removed from the group.

*** If you would like to host an event please message us with the details. ***

We are open to ideas and new events but we are thinking along the lines of;

Social drinks

Meals out

Pub Quizzing

Hiking

Cycling

Comedy

Paddle boarding

Poetry/Open mike nights

Bowling

Gigs

Cocktail night

Cinema

Theatre

Bar crawl

Boat trip (if anyone has a boat, worth a shot)

Escape rooms

Games

Picnics

Day festivals

BBQs

Upcoming events (5+)

Derby Escape Room

25 Wardwick

What sounds like more fun than being locked in a room with people you barely know? Nothing, that's what! So that's why I thought the next logical progression for our quaint little group would be an Escape Room. There seems to be some interest so I thought I'd put it to the test. After a quick Google search, it looks like Derby has offered up a decent selection which I've narrowed down to the following - https://unescapable.co.uk/ There are 2 rooms so even if you've done one, there's still another one to escape. There's also up to 7 people per room so price varies, but I'm confident we can get 14 which would be £15 each. If we can get 14 interested by next week, I'll book and collect the rest of the money closer to the time, but to start I'll ask for a £5 deposit; just so there's some skin in the game ;) https://paypal.me/AndyJones83?locale.x=en_GB Will add more details as interest is gauged...

House of Holes

House Of Holes

"House of Holes is Derby's very first 'Adult' mini golf venue! Boasting 18 individually designed holes with themes ranging from retro bowling alleys to shop mannequins and the outright obscene, there's no shortage of things to see!" - from the official website... I've heard all sorts of weird and wonderful things about this place so let's go check it out! There's food and alcohol there if you fancy it, and we'll probably be heading out for drinks afterwards as well. 🍻 I've made a booking for 15 people 11th May 8pm, you can just turn up and pay on the day, £10 each. If you change your mind/can't make it, not a problem but just make sure to update your rsvp so someone else can take your place!

Orange tree comedy

The Orange Tree

Comedy night in the orange tree again! We'll meet in the bar area at around 7, grab a drink before heading upstairs at 7:45 for the show starting at 8. Free to get in but tips are encouraged on the way out if you have any spare change. Was a really good show last time so easily worth a couple of quid. 😬 See you there!
