What we're about

This is a group for people who would like to explore art & music, theatre & museums and attend talks and lectures in the city of London. There are a huge number of these in this city at any given time and we ought to make it out to see, hear and experience them. It is particularly nice to do all these things in a large group so that we could identify other like minded people while also being able to discuss our experiences after our meetups.

We will visit these venues every week and after the visits meet at a cafe or bar for some refreshments or a meal where we can chat and discuss.

21 to 45 - Speed friending! No pressure way to make friends! Over 40 expected

Please join us as we help you make new friendships with both ladies and gentlemen without any of the pressure, shyness and nervousness normally associated with meeting new people. This is for ladies and gentlemen between the ages of 21 to 45. (It is fine if you are a few years either side of these parameters) For our last Speed Friending social we had over 40 members present and this time we expect over 50! Please click on the link below to purchase your tickets in advance: Fatsoma: https://fatso.ma/KAk1 OR Eventbrite: https://beatonetony.eventbrite.co.uk WHY SPEED FRIENDING? In our speed friending, we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships. One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group. Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate. Here’s how it will be set-up: 1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed standing place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other. 2) ANNA will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. She will indicate when you should move to the next person. 3) We will meet from 6.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 7.00pm. 4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 7.00 pm onwards and continue till about 8.45pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway. 5) Our function room is booked for ANNA/Meetup. We will have a reserved area downstairs for our members. Please be sure to read the events board to know which room is ours on the day. You can also ask the security guard on the ground floor. 6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. ANNA will welcome you and help you get comfortable. 7) Happy Hours until 7 pm and pizza for £5 only.
