Drinks & Dinner with Frida Kahlo ~ (V&A Lates)
"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" Frida Kahlo I've been meaning to see the V&A's "Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up" exhibition for weeks (months??), so thought, what better way to see it than in the company of a fabulous group of women?! (...and accompanied by good food and wine doesn't hurt either). What will we do? Meet at the V&A for a post-work, pre-exhibition drink! After a little introduction/catchup, those who would like to can take a wander around the exhibit (£15), and those who would prefer not to, can hang back, grab another drink and chat. Then we can reconvene and head for dinner when we're ready. I'm thinking the Lebanese place nearby South Ken station as there's a nice variety, it's reasonably priced and there's lots of seating. This meetup is very relaxed, so don't worry if you're running late or need to speed off to catch a train. Feel free to join for whichever bit you'd like and go at your own pace. Please note: Before the date, we'll put together a WhatsApp group, so you don't need to stress if you're running late, or meeting points change etc. So once you've confirmed, please private message me your number and whether you'd like to come for dinner so I can reserve a table for the right number. A bit about Frida After suffering from polio as a child, then being involved in a terrible bus accident, Frida's mother made her a unique easel so that she could continue her favourite hobby, painting, in bed while she recovered. Frida went on to become a world-famous artist, known for the bold colours, animals and birds in her paintings, and feminist icon. The exhibit looks at her through the prism of her most intimate belongings - the first time these belongings have left La Casa Azul in Mexico City, where after her death in 1954 they were locked in a room by her husband Diego Rivera and only released in 2004. A bit about the Ladies Who Brunch chicas Let's just say that if Frida was on meetup, she'd be hittin' up "Ladies who brunch" like a boss. If you've not been to one of our meetups before, you're in for a treat - a good laugh with an amazing, super friendly, welcoming bunch of gals, so please don't be shy!!

    What we're about

    Hi ladies!

    This group is ideal for women who are time-poor and want to be able to drop in to social meetups with like minded individuals at similar stages in their lives.

    Many women I know struggle with the same problem as they hit their mid-twenties/ thirties with most of their social network spread out all over the country. Many of us have moved from our hometowns, friends are scattered all over the place and long working hours make it pretty difficult to commit to 'hobbies'.

    This Surrey-based member's group is designed to be low maintenance but there when you want it, as and when you are free.

    The group is always open to suggestions for things to do, but will start on the basis of all things from fitness (runs, yoga, walks, gym sessions, dance classes) to coffee catch ups, new lunch venues, as well as golf, film, fashion and career conversations/ networking.

    If you have any hobbies or passions we could incorporate that you would like to share or teach us - we would be thrilled! It will hopefully be a great way for us to take a moment out of our busy lives; put the world to rights; share hobbies and skills; network and basically just enjoy those odd free evenings and weekends we have while in the company of some amazing women!
