What we're about

Are you interested in socialising with a broad international mixture of people?
London International Meetup is an active group which arranges several different activities most weeks. It has been established since 2003 and has one of the largest memberships. Group sizes are restricted to appropriate levels and each event will have a small meetup charge to cover the organisation costs and to ensure the quality of the events.

Our regular events include:

- Social evenings (usually up to 40 people)
Come and meet other members. It is a friendly group and you will be welcomed by the organiser when you arrive. We try to use locations which do not have a lot of background noise. Food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available.

- UK day trips (usually up to 20 people)
We organise day trips on most weekends, usually to a location within England. We travel by public transport (train and local buses or taxis). These are social events - in most cases the group remains together throughout the day, except when going to a busy festival.

- Theatre shows (usually up to 10 people)
See a musical or play in one of the many theatres in London. This is a cheaper and more sociable way to enjoy either West End or off-West End shows. We sometimes do "surprise theatre" events for up to 4 people. As tickets have to be pre-purchased you will need to provide mobile phone contact details when you reply, for confirmation purposes

- Walks (usually up to 20 people)
There is a monthly walk on a Sunday afternoon. Usually this follows a section of one of the special walking routes (eg the London Loop, the Capital Ring or the Thames Path). Lunch is usually in a pub or cafe along the route. A distance of 7-10 miles is followed at a sociable, medium pace.

If you reply Yes to an event, please make sure that you turn up (or if necessary change your reply on the meetup website if you are unable to come). For events which involve tickets (eg day trips or theatre/concerts) usually you will be asked to give your full name and mobile phone number when you reply - please make sure that you provide these so that you can be contacted if necessary. You may be removed from the group if you do not show up for a day trip or theatre show without changing your reply or notifying the organiser.
