We are one of the friendliest groups on Meetup and many of our members have been coming out with us for several years. We are like a big family and would love you to join us! Are you new to Brighton and Hove or would you like to make friends with people from around the world? You might be visiting on holiday or maybe working or studying here and looking for fun and interesting things to do! We run evening and weekend meetups, language exchange, nights out dancing or watching bands, Brighton tours and day trips.
Whether you are working here, studying or on holiday, all nationalities and ages are welcome to join our group. Before lockdown we used to meet up on a Wednesday night for Language Exchange at a bar in Hove. We also enjoyed going out on Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights for drinks and getting to know each other. We love dancing and watching live bands and sometimes had theme parties. Now we can no longer run face to face meetups we are experimenting with video meetups and watch parties.
We used to have a group Loyalty card for our members and will think about what is possible for online meetups. We do ask for a small contribution towards the cost of running meetups and our organisers time planning, promoting and hosting meetups. We always say hello to new members and introduce you to other friendly people. We also like to keep in touch with our members and send updates about events by email. We also have an International Friends group on Facebook and WhatsApp and you may message our main organiser if you have any questions.
