BIG Party in London Max 250 Sat March 2nd in Regents Park

Union Regents Place

It's always a great atmosphere at Union Regents Place and always max 250 each time. We end up turning people away when we are full. Picture above is from one of our events at this venue. Join us for a fun night of socialising and dancing with intros at the bar in mixed groups, our Social Circle ice-breaker at 7.45pm and then the party with DJ who rocks until 12.30am. Tickets £13.75 booked via our site. Text Julie on[masked] for the link to book stating the date you are interested in attending with full name and email. Please note that RSVP only does not book you even if you receive a message from Meet Up saying that you are booked. Everyone attending our events has confirmed details with their booking so this maintains a safe environment for people to meet and it also makes a big difference to the sort of people attending . We take over the whole venue for exclusive use and the door is staffed all night so it is not possible to just turn up later if you are not registered and on the guest list as booked. Book soon as we always end up turning lots of members away by the date of the event. We cannot take new bookings on the day as always full by then. We always reach max 250 as events are promoted on 8 Meet Up groups, Skiddle and Event Brite as well as our own club's website. It is always a much higher number booked than shown on any of the Meet Up groups. Our club has been going since 1994 and we have the biggest singles parties in London with a very cosmopolitan mix of sociable singles in London and from the surrounding suburbs. FEMALE NETWORKING If female and coming alone, we can put you in touch with other ladies booked who are also coming alone and would like to hear from you. We know this makes a big difference to encouraging ladies to come to our events as they feel much more comfortable and it is nice if there is someone also going home your way after the event. We have members from later 20s/early 30s but we would say the majority age range is 35 - 55 at our parties with younger and older than this. Hope to see you all soon. Regards Julie Davies[masked] (text me on this number for link to book)
