What we're about

Hi and welcome to my group.

I take the intimidation out of breaking the ice allowing singles to meet new people in a fun relaxed environment: Bringing together single people in their prime (mainly 30s & 40s) at fun organised events in the Bristol / Somerset area for friendship and/or romance.

The difference with THIS group is that I organise a variety of EVENTS so even the shyest of people can also join in with the more outgoing of people. You can join in as much, or as little as you feel OK to do so.

Interactive events such as fun quiz nights, BBQs with ball-games or simple drinks gatherings allow members to meet & mingle with other singletons without any pressure, expectation or being contrived. It is not a “dating” group, but a social group. However, if you happen to meet your Mr or Miss Right, then great, I get to get my hat out of the wardrobe(!) - I'm still waiting for Brad Pitt to walk through the doors!

We have been going as a group since January 2014 under the name GEMINI EVENTS and already lots of new friends have been made, numbers & facebook details exchaged, and subsequent evenings out arranged.

We have a facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/geminievent ) and if you click "like" on that page, we can all keep in touch through that. There's also a website http://www.geminiprofessionals.co.uk which lists upcoming events, comments on previous get-togethers and a little more about me and why I set up the group in the first place.

All our members are fun, welcoming and friends you have just not met before. I warmly welcome you to any future events

NEW & EXISTING MEMBERS BAR NIGHT

The White Hart

As many of the Gemini group's situations have changed and many are now loved up, I thought it time to do another NEWBIES DRINKS NIGHT. Existing members are still welcome to attend, but the emphasis will be on people who've never been to one of my Gemini nights before. Please however, only RSVP yes if you are coming as I need to let the venue know fairly accurate numbers as it depends how much of the pub we'll reserve / "take over"! Most people will arrive on their own, so please don't feel apprehensive about coming along on your tod, but you're more than welcome to bring a friend too if you wish (single or not), but you're actually more likely to get more out of the evening if you are on your own. I will be there to greet you and help you mingle with a great ice-breaker that I've done many times before and got the room chatting away within minutes. VENUE: The White Hart, Lower Maudlin St, Bristol BS1 2LU PARKING: Several NCP car parks nearby. BUS: Right next door to the Bristol Bus station! DATE: Wed 23rd Jan TIME: 8pm DRESSCODE: Smart / Casual PRICE: £4 to me on arrival As I book venues which cater for a certain number of people, this can often have a detrimental affect to the area I book, bar staff employed etc. I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out within 24 hours of the meetup starting without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly, unless they've paid for the event beforehand.

COME DINE WITH ME

Travellers Rest

COME DINE WITH ME I have been asked many times to put a dining event on and I thought it’s about time I did one! The lovely landlady of this venue has put together a set menu especially for us (available in photos) with various options for starter, main and dessert and you can choose either 2 or 3 courses, depending on your appetite! The Travellers Rest, just north of the village of Pensford is a lovely pub with breathtaking views over the countryside from the conservatory restaurant area. It's just 15 - 20 mins from the centre of Bristol on the A37 and on a main bus route from town (regular buses direct from the Bristol bus station to the bus stop 120 yards opposite the pub - stop called Belluton Lane). We will have our own designated area and there is a large car park for those driving. If this event is a success and there is a lot of interest from my Gemini group, then the landlady said we may be able to hold this as a regular event. Please RSVP here and either private message me your meal options, or put them in the comments below, stating S, M, D and the number corresponding to your choice of food. As we're now quite a large group, I have to give in the meal options & deposit to the venue on Wednesday 23rd Jan. If you are wanting to RSVP after Wednesday, then please message me with your meal options and I will see if they can accommodate more people. Please note: Anyone who's given me their meal options and then cancels after Wednesday (or doesn't show up) will be expected to pay the £7 deposit fee and will also have a "no show" strike...I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly.

NEW MEMBERS bowling and HALF PRICE DRINKS

Ten Pin Bristol, Avonmeads, BS2 0SP

£15.00

Ten pin Bowling is always a popular event with my group as it's a great way to meet and interact with new people. (Existing members also still welcome). You don't have to have played before, be any good, or be a massive fan - just come along and try your luck whilst mixing with other local singles in an interactive activity. Three ways to confirm: 1. RSVP here and go straight through to paypal, but the price is slightly higher at £15 to allow for paypal costs and the increase in lane charges. 2. Message me to say you're coming and go to www.paypal.me/geminievents/14.30 and UNTICK the box saying "paying with goods & services (I will RSVP you from this end) 3. Message me to say you're coming and pay £14.30 cash PRIOR to the event. (I'm afraid that I've had to put the prices up just a little as Ten Pin are charging me more from Jan 2019, sorry) I'm having to put these above procedures into place due to too many people letting me down and I'm then out of pocket. Meet up in the bar area of TENPIN at 7.50pm, St Philips, Avonmeads, Brislington (NOT the Longwell Green bowling, so please make sure you come to the correct place!!! Lol) 2 games of bowling, mingling, having a laugh and then a drink and socialise afterwards in the bar area for those who want to. If you fancy a drink or a bite to eat during the evening they serve a wide range of food and refreshments and this evening they're offering us HALF PRICE DRINKS! As I book venues which cater for a certain number of people, this can often have a detrimental affect to the area I book, bar staff employed etc. I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out within 24 hours of the meetup starting without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly, unless they've paid for the event beforehand.

ANTI-VALENTINES NIGHT

Slug & Lettuce Bristol Harbourside

Why should couples have all the fun & attention at this time of year? Come along and mingle with other Bristol singletons! An added bonus - 2 for 1 cocktails at this venue too! DATE: Fri 15th February TIME: 8pm - Meet UPSTAIRS in Slug & Lettuce HARBOURSIDE (NOT the town centre one!) We have our own VIP area cordoned off. Stairs are immediately in front of you / to the right as you walk in the door and our area is at the top of the stairs. I will be there to greet you at the top of those stairs. EVENT DETAILS: I will have a well-received ice-breaker for those who want to join in. Closing time of the bar is 2am for those who want to stay that late. COST: £4 to me on the night on arrival DRESSCODE: Dress to impress / clubbing attire / no trainers or sportswear please TRANSPORT/PARKING: There is ample NCP parking at Millenium Square, but it does tend to be quite expensive, so Queen's Square is often a popular place to park and then a short walk over the bridge. Buses are frequent to Millenium Square. As I book venues which cater for a certain number of people, this can often have a detrimental affect to the area I book, bar staff employed etc. I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out within 24 hours of the meetup starting without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly, unless they've paid for the event beforehand.
