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

Board games afternoon #2 at Al Campo lounge

Alcampo Lounge

We had such fun yesterday that - we've decided to do another one!! Al Campo is such a great space - they sell teas, coffees and all sorts of drinks and every type of food from cakes to a full meal, with lots of vegan and veggie choices, all at very reasonable prices. It's a huuuuge venue, with lots of space to set up and play board games. But we couldn't find enough last time, so we're going to bring some of our own this time, to make sure we have enough to go round! For those of us who want to get some lunch, I plan to arrive about 1.15 pm, but we want to get started on some games by about 2 pm. So if you don't want to eat, please come along for a 2 pm start. I'll be collecting £1 Meetup fee from any non-members on the day. If you've been thinking about coming to something for a while but haven't quite got around to it, this event is a perfect way to get started - none of us know what we're doing, so there'll be the inevitable arguments about rules, etc, while we learn how to play the games - but loads of chance to get to know some new people and have a proper chat! Should be a fun afternoon - see you there.

Fleetwood Bac at Concorde 2

Concorde 2

I've meant to see Fleetwood Bac for ages, and have always managed to miss them - until now!! Get your ticket now - it's cheaper - and far less hassle! - then seeing the originals at Wembley!! This is likely to be at the early start time of 7.30, with a chuck-out time of 10 pm, as they'll be having a 'club-night' straight afterwards, starting at about 10.30 - with a slightly different audience!!! But watch this space - and Concorde 2 will send you updates once you've booked - timings may very well change! Book your own ticket (£16 + £1.50 bkg fee) at: https://www.concorde2.co.uk/events/fleetwood-bac Really hope you can make it! Remember, this is a mostly standing venue! (but really nice and friendly). "Fleetwood Bac has been rated by The Times newspaper as one of the UK's top 5 tribute acts touring alongside Bootleg Beatles, Counterfeit Stones, Bjorn Again and with rave reviews in 'The Stage', fantastic endorsements from many of the official Fleetwood Mac fanzines, and from the official Stevie Nicks website. They have had ecstatic audiences wherever they have played across the world. "

Pub Quiz Night at The Lion & Lobster

Lion & Lobster

A return to the Lion & Lobster, an enjoyable quiz with the perk of free pizza! If you haven't been before, it's easy to find - just go down Bedford Place, just West of Montpelier Road on Western Road. Walk past the New Venture Theatre on your left, and the L&L is the big bright red pub further down the road on your left, on the corner with Sillwood Street. Please remember to bring scrap paper and pens, as well as £1 coins, one for the quiz and one for Meetup fee (for non-members). And a torch (not linked to a mobile phone) - it can be quite dingy there! Try to get there nice and early, preferably at 7.30 when I'll be there, so we can claim our tables and have time to get a drink and have a chat before the quiz starts at 8.30 pm prompt. If you're not there by 8pm, they're likely to start giving any unclaimed spaces away.
