This group is about socializing but also about sharing knowledge on all things European happening in London. So if you know of a unique exhibition, a concert or a play, if you have a favorite Italian, Spanish, Finnish, English, Romanian, Estonian or Turkish restaurant or just want to go and watch a European movie, this is the right place to flag it and invite others. We particularly welcome members who are interested in European politics and those who'd like to contribute their time and knowledge to organising events in the Club.

Please feel free to send me your suggestions.

I look forward to meeting you!

Upcoming events (2)

In Short, Europe ESCAPE [film, free]

Online event

An online European Short Film Festival. All films have English subtitles https://www.eventbrite.com/e/in-short-europe-escape-tickets-125020087447 Enforced measures of lockdown and social distancing, as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, have brought about new modes of cultural activity, new ways of creating and consuming culture. At the same time, such unprecedented circumstances have reframed notions of togetherness, alienation, distance and embodiment. We have suddenly found ourselves before an abundance of virtual events, exhibitions, festivals, and performances, which reframe the social and physical foundations of culture, while all the same highlighting their significance. In Short Europe, an initiative of EUNIC London, was first organised on Brexit day as a celebration of European cinema and our shared values and culture with the UK. Its second edition follows prolonged periods of uncertainty, fatigue and despair of the lives lost and the time spent in isolation and distanced from the people we love and the things we love to do, such as attending a music concert or a theatre performance, or simply going to the cinema on a Sunday evening. The way out is still obscure and saturated by layers of medical, scientific, political and economic discourse. Through a variety of genres and styles, fifteen shorts from all over Europe feature characters and images that appear and disappear, following physical or mental journeys, reaching points of arrival or points of departure, always on the move, seeking an escape that may or may not come. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/in-short-europe-escape-tickets-125020087447
