Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying the warmer weather in May, we can finally leave our winter coats at home
A warm welcome to everyone especially those who have arrived in Düsseldorf recently and those who are new to our group! Our apologies for the lateness of this update, the team had a busy week & weekend and it is only now we can catch our breath and start organizing ... we hope you will receive this message in time!
It is the May Expat Meetup in Düsseldorf this week, Thursday 16th at O'Reillys Irish Bar in the Altstadt. So far we have nearly 40 people who have shown interest in this week's event and this number will be higher, we hope you can join us!
For those new to Expat meetup, this is a monthly event which gives anyone new to Düsseldorf or surrounding cities an opportunity to meet people from other countries or local area. It is also a chance for members to catch up with friends or people they have met before
We usually meet upstairs on the top floor of O'Reilly's Irish Bar in the Altstadt (Marktplatz 6) however this week - in fact throughout summer - we're hoping for fine weather so we can meet outside by the tables and enjoy the sunshine. We will update you on this, fingers crossed for fine weather!
If this is your first meetup event and if you need help to get started please feel free to ask any of the organizers; we will be happy to help! If you need help finding us ask any staff member at O'Reilly's who will be happy to assist you.
We're also hope to host an expat BBQ later this month, 26th May or beginning of June, Sunday 2nd. We will send an message about this as soon as we have checked details and fixed the weather
A quick mention of an event happening this weekend - the 21st Düsseldorf Jazz Rally starts this Friday, for three days you can watch & hear many live performances around the city. If you love jazz, love live music and want to find out more this link should provide information:
