What we're about




As there are not many social groups for singles over 50's I have decided to start a group. We are a friendly group, welcoming members from diverse backgrounds living in or near to Nottingham who like to walk in the countryside, dining, cinema and days out,chat over coffee, lunch, drinks at the local etc. The group is a social group for people who want a more active life and to meet new friends

We want to expand our horizons and interest and encourage every member to take an active part. Any member can put on an event, we will always be there to help and advice

Socialize, Laugh and above all have Fun

To cover web and other costs there will be an annual charge on the first event of £6.00.

Please load a clear head shot of yourself as your profile picture so our hosts can recognize you at events and ensure you are not missed. Please also let us know if for whatever reason you can't attend a social or have to drop out, so that the host is not waiting for you and to free up the space for someone else. No shows are frowned upon and discourage members from hosting events.

People who do not look at the website or attend an event in 3 months will be removed from the members list.

Friendly Canasta Monday evenings

Ludorati Café

If you play Canasta, no matter whether it's been years or you've just recently learned, come along and play Canasta with us for the evening at Ludorati, a licensed dedicated games café, in the middle of Nottingham, that's really very nice, well worth the £2 an hour they charge. Players are teamed up on the night from whoever comes, with no preset groups. We start promptly at 7:30pm and usually play through until 9:30. If you don't play yet, but would like to learn in a friendly atmosphere, why not come along to our Wednesday evening teaching sessions. Same venue, same time.

Quiz Night at The Bell Inn, in Nottingham city centre's Market Square.

Location visible to members

On the last Tuesday of every month, come and meet friends, make new acquaintances and have a go at a traditional quiz all in the city centre of Nottingham. Teams are created on the night from whoever turns up, and it's a great way for new members to get into the swing. It’s a general knowledge quiz, created by our own members, and is held just for our meetup group. Not expecting you to be a brainbox, it's as much a social occasion as it is a quiz. We have the use of an upstairs room so we can sit easily as a group. From the main passageway, go into the first bar on the right. Inside there are stairs leading up to our room. Meet up at 8:00pm, for an 8:15 start. Team sizes & groupings according to numbers on the night. Enjoy!

Canasta for beginners and experienced players.

Ludorati Cafe

This will be our usual Canasta evening for experienced players and learners. Ludorati is an excellent venue with reasonably priced beverages and plenty of gaming tables. It's always a good evening with a lovely atmosphere so come along and play with us.
