What we're about

Welcome to Suzie’s Friendly Brighton 45+ Meetup group! This is a member run, not-for-profit, social club offering different types of sociable events every month. You’ll find it’s a great way to find new friends in the area. We aim to offer a wide range of social events and cultural and sporting activities.

I’ll be charging £1 per person at every Meetup or alternatively, if you want to become a member, you can just pay a one-off annual subscription of £10. Why not come to a couple of events, just while you decide if our group is for you?

New to Brighton, or lived here all your life but want to try new cool activities? Try us and enjoy what the area has to offer – and make lots of new friends at the same time! Hope to see you at an event very soon.

Best wishes

Welcome to my BIG weekly quiz! I'll be running these on a weekly basis right through to Spring - 'cos let's face it, we're not all out and about as much as we used to be!!

You can join any time from 6.45, so that we can have a chat and all be settled and ready to start the quiz from 7 pm prompt. If you arrive any later than 7, you (probably) won't be able to join!

Don't forget - bring scrap paper and something to write with - and bring some drinks and snacks - it IS a pub quiz after all!!!

'Leopoldstadt' - Live Recording at the Duke of Yorks cinema

Duke of York's Picturehouse

Join me as NT Live relaunches with Tom Stoppard's autobiographical drama, recorded in front of a live audience.

Book your own ticket at:-
Sorry, having probs with the link, it keeps taking me to my ticket!!

I got Balcony ticket Q7 for free via the Picturehouse App, but it'll be between £17.50 and £23 if you're not retired and not a Picturehouse member - if you're not already a Picturehouse member, this could be a good time to think about joining - it really is sooo worthwhile!
Hope you can make it - I'm so pleased to get a chance to see this play that I missed cos of C... !

"Filmed live in front of an audience, Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance. At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.
We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play."

"Blink" at Brighton Little Theatre

Brighton Little Theatre

Join me at this fantastic theatre for "Blink" by Phil Porter, described as a "dysfunctional love story"!

"Blink" by Phil Porter
"A Love Story… A dark-humoured, dysfunctional kind of love story that can only grow between two shy, socially awkward young adults.
Sophie, invisible and vulnerable, and Jonah, sheltered by an upbringing in a religious commune, develop an unusual connection in an age of indirect, technology assisted communication.
Powerfully written with themes of grief, romance, introversion, voyeurism, OCD and loneliness.
Love is not a cast iron set of symptoms."

I've booked seat B6 for this show.
Book your own ticket (£10) using this link:
https://brightonlittletheatre.ticketline.co.uk/blink-and-green-forms
and don't forget to select the 7.45 performance on Tue 8th February.

NB please remember, we will have to wear masks for the whole performance.
If you try to arrive between 7 and 7.15, we should all be able to have a drink in the cosy bar first.

For those who haven't been to the BLT before, here are some more detailed directions - PLEASE DON'T TRUST GOOGLEMAPS TO FIND IT!!!. From Western Road, immediately opposite Primark, turn into Clarence Gardens, which leads into Clarence Square. With Flight Centre to your left, walk closely past the Pull & Pump pub on your right, and at the end of the pub, go down 2 steps into a little alley-way past 5 or 6 houses on your right and through a little gate at the end, into a small square yard. The door to the theatre is straight ahead of you. Walk in, up a couple of steps and down some steps into the bar, where you pick up your tickets - and we'll all be waiting for you! Phew! See you there!
