What we're about

Do you like Lego? Do you live in London? Are you old enough to buy a drink in a pub? London AFOLS offers an early evening get-together for Adult Fans Of Lego, or AFOLs for short, based in or near London. Our meetups are suitable for anyone over the age of 18 who likes to build with Lego, no matter what their skill-level is. Whether you live in London or are visiting from elsewhere, you are welcome to join us having fun with Lego.

We get together on the second Monday of each month. Once upon a time, we used to meet in the function room of a pub near Euston station, but since the SARS-CoV-2 virus shook our lives up, most Meetups have been held via Zoom. As of January 2022, we were all-set to resume real-life meetups in central London but then along came Omicron... Back to Zoom for now.

Each monthly Meetup has a different theme, which usually involves a presentation about some aspect of Lego, then building something to theme in smaller break-out rooms. Sometimes we have special trading meetups, or competitions. We try to keep it varied so there's something for everyone.

After attending a Meetup, you are welcome to join our Slack discussion forum, where we discuss Lego and other matters between meetups.

People - We attract all sorts of people from a wide range of backgrounds. We are about 60:40 male:female. Attendance usually numbers 40-50 people for pub meetups, and 25-30 for online meetups. 

Age range - we have members in their late teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, with 30s being the median group - just. 

Photos - please upload a recognisable photo of yourself in your Meetup profile. It makes it easier for us to recognise and welcome newcomers. Also, be aware members may take pics at Meetups and upload to one of our social media sites so you need to be comfortable with a picture of yourself appearing online. 

Costs - We ask for a contribution of £5 per Meetup attended. This covers Meetup fees, website fees, postage, some Lego parts from time to time etc. Members pay via Paypal using a link supplied at the Meetup. Annual membership is also available for £50 a year, with renewals in April.

N.B. We are a Recognised Lego User Group (RLUG), meaning we are supported by The LEGO Group in Denmark and have a good relationship with them. However, we are neither controlled by the company nor sponsored by them.
