What we're about

Welcome to our community! This group is made for ladies who want to make new female friends in London in a relaxed environment. We hope you will make lifelong girlfriends here, as well as enjoy all the fun London has to offer. There will be several events each month ranging from brunch, theatre, days out and much more! Suggestions for events are welcomed and encouraged. We encourage new people to attend, so feel free to RSVP to events that take you interest! 👩🏿‍🤝‍👩🏼❤️

Our Ethos -

We want everyone to contribute to the success and joy of this group, and this involves turning up to the events you RSVP to. Showing up is a commitment we want everyone to make, as this helps the organisers maximise the spaces booked, helps the attendees meet more new people, and most importantly it help you fulfil the commitment you made to yourself to meet nice new friends.

WE STRICTLY DO NOT DO ANY NETWORING OR ANY BUSINESS-RELATED EVENTS OF ANY KIND, NO EXCEPTIONS. This group is for meaningful friendships and quality time amongst women in London.

NO-SHOW POLICY – We would like to maximise every event for your full enjoyment, therefore we encourage you to turn up to the events you RSVP to. All attendance is monitored. TWO missed events will be marked as 'no-shows', and a polite reminder will be sent to you. If you do not show up THREE times when you have RSVP'd as "Yes" without sending a message and changing your RSVP, you will be automatically removed from the group. Its important you RSVP to things you can attend to, and change you RSVP in good time if other plans come up. Please do this so we can offer your spot to someone else if you decide not to attend. This rule applies to last minute drop outs (UNDER 48hrs) without a message too. This is to make sure that we maximise all the space we book for events and include more people who want to participate and enjoy meeting each other.

PAYMENT - Please note, running this group is not free and lead organisers pay Meet-up a monthly fee to keep the group running. Therefore RSVPs will be charged a non-refundable £3 for all events. Some events might also require an additional fee if the restaurant or event venue requires a prepayment. This £3 is non-refundable under all circumstances unless only if the organisers cancel the event. If you cancel your RSVP the non-refund still applies. If you would like to support the continued running of this group you can also donate any amount to our PayPal pool which I can send to you if you request the link :)

WAITLIST - Please be aware that we currently don't have waitlist and all events are first come first serve. Updates will be sent out once we can have a functioning waitlist.

SAFETY AND COURTESY: We want everyone to have a fun and safe time when attending our events, and we want our organisers to communicate with attendees about event updates with confidence that they will be treated with respect - therefore we follow Meet-up's policy on safety strictly. We do not tolerate any abusive language towards anyone in this group. Please DM people with respect. Any members found to be harassing/insulting/threatening/bullying any member of this group will be removed immediately and the ban will be permanent. We also make reports to meet-up who have the power to remove any policy breakers of the platform completely.

SOCIAL MEDIA: Our Instagram handle is @femalefriendsLDN. Please follow. We take pictures at events. If you do not want your picture uploaded please let the organiser know and they will delete all pictures featuring you.
