About the main organiser of this group:

Kelly Bayliffe created Tastour in 2008 as a place for a diverse mix of singles and couples of all ages to come together to laugh, learn and share food and drink experiences throughout the world - mainly in London, but we do travel together too! Her events are light hearted yet educational, using her unique spectrum of skills as the UK's "Wine Educator of the Year", a stand up comic, laughter yoga instructor and relationship coach. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge, helping others make meaningful connections and enjoying life enriching experiences of all kinds.

As well as her own events, she also has a few carefully selected host which will organise events for the group.

Have a look at our upcoming list, which can be found here (https://www.meetup.com/London-Singles-Club/events/)

More details about our community:

Our events are aged at those between 30-50, however we have people who attend outside this range. We tend to have a fairly even gender split, but as the focus on single friends. We create an low pressure environment for meeting new people. The conversation is always great and the events are well organised.

One of the things I've noticed is what makes our events different everyone is keen to chat to all. I often send out this to attendees, so if you are feeling a bit nervous, you can find more info here (https://www.meetup.com/London-Singles-Club/messages/boards/thread/50601201/0/#130162185) on the group.

I write logs to the group on my journey of divorce to being single to falling in love with someone through building a friendship with someone I met at meetup, which you can find here: https://www.meetup.com/London-Singles-Club/...

Warm hugs,

Kelly
