What we're about

Welcome to the London LGBTQ+ Friends Club.

We are a friendly group that welcomes everyone regardless of where you are on the spectrum on sexuality or gender identity and expression.

The group was founded by Ian Newman who ran the successful London Gay Men's Dinner Club for eight years and the same warmth and welcome that that group was known for is now reaching out to all in the LGBTQ+ community.

We will be meeting for social events at least once a month. These may be in the firm of dinners at various restaurants in London as well as events at LGBT venues in and around London; plus many other fun activities that have the purpose of bringing people together in a spirit of inclusion and friendship.

Keep an eye out for events as they are announced on Meetup. It will be great to welcome you along to the group.

Eurofest with the fabulous KEiiNO at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Royal Vauxhall Tavern


Come along to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern on Friday 8th November for an evening of Europop fun! Here is some information from their website. The UK’s biggest Eurovision, Europop and Schlager club night is about to have it’s 30th night at the RVT – and we’re celebrating in style! We are proud and excited to be bringing to London the “people’s choice” of Eurovision 2019, the fabulous KEiiNO. The Norwegian trio have been the ultimate fan favourite, winning this year’s televote with the brilliant “Spirit in the Sky” and they will be bringing their spectacular show to the RVT stage. But that’s not all….! Eurofest is delighted to be hosting the return of the Second Cherry contest – a celebration of songs that competed in contests across Europe for the chance to represent their countries at Eurovision – but failed. Second Cherry is their second chance; a second bite of the cherry. After a few years hiatus, the Second Cherry team are back for 2019 accompanied by a podcast and they will be hosting the live ‘final’ at the start of Eurofest (7:45-10pm). The audience on the night will vote as juries and form 50% of the vote. The other 50% will be from an online vote of the Second Cherry podcast listeners. Turn up, enjoy the show, vote, and then party! Plus of course all the best Eurovision, Europop and Schlager hits and remixes from our team of DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons. MEET OUTSIDE THE ENTRANCE TO THE RVT AT 7PM. YOU WILL NEED TO BOOK YOUR OWN TICKET FOR THIS EVENT BY VISITING THE RVT WEBSITE https://www.vauxhalltavern.com/events/event/eurofest-7/?oid=2717 PLEASE ONLY RSVP ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED YOUR TICKET - THAT WAY WE WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHO IS COMING ALONG.
