What we're about

Fancy meeting new people in Hitchin? Well this is the group for you!

We love board games, hiking, cinema trips, escape rooms, drinks at the pub, good books (we have our own book club!), trips to places nearby and random adventures. Join us! If you're new, and shy, message me (Laura), I don't bite and I'll set you up with a buddy (me, or someone else new) so you don't have to turn up to things alone because that can suck unless you're super brave (and if you're brave then even better!).


Who runs the group?

Laura and Haylee manage the bulk of events, with Aidan and Carys also being administrators of the group.

Why is there an attendee limit on events?

We like our events to be intimate enough to not overwhelm newcomers. On top of that, we often book venues in advance and want to be mindful of other patrons of wherever we are holding our events.

Can you run events concurrently so more people can attend?

Short answer: no. This may seem like a really easy, casual thing we got going on but I like to think that's just because we make it look effortless! We all put a lot of time, effort and money into running these events and we don't have the resources (chiefly time and money) to churn out events. We also aim for our events to be high quality -- we don't want to be putting on the same events on over and over unless there's demand for it.

Can I run my own event?

We would love for other people to bring their own flair to The Herd! That being said, we ask that you come along to at least three events before requesting to run your own event.

Can't wait to meet you!
