What we're about

Interested in doing (cultural) things with others? Are you into music, movies, sports, galleries or a glass of good whisky? If yes, then this group is for you! Let's do everything from nakkikoju testing to opera, pub crawling to jazz gigs. Anything even remotely related to culture is on the list! Suggest an event and let's do it :)

This season, we are actively looking for members to offer ideas of other activities to arrange. If you are interested, its pretty easy, so just come and speak to one of the organisers at any of our events and put your idea forward. We will support you.

We are a partner of the Jolly Dragon, Helsinki Sports Network and Cafe Lingua: Find our Facebook page here: facebook.com/jollydragonfun & https://www.facebook.com/groups/CafeLinguaHelsinki/
