What we’re about

Are you a smart woman who lives your life a little bit differently? This is a group for women in their 40s and 50s who want to expand their social circle and form meaningful connections with like-minded women. And have some fun too! We get together regularly for interesting and creative activities such as theatre, music, arthouse films and stimulating conversation. We're based in Melbourne's inner north (but many members do come from further afield too).

To make life easy for our event organisers all applications MUST be accompanied by a recognisable photo (head shot of you alone) - avatars will not be accepted. Photos are visible only to group members. 

Most our events are in the city or inner north. To encourage real and genuine connections, the group size for many events is limited to 10-15. 

Our activities to date have included:

    Theatre at La Mama, Red Stitch, the Lawler Studio and the North Melbourne Arts House

    The Melbourne International Comedy Festival

    The Melbourne International Film Festival

    The Melbourne Fringe Festival

    Art exhibitions

    Bollywood dancing and Go Go dancing

    Poetry slam at Trades Hall

    Films at the Nova

    Bike rides and bushwalks

    Drinks, lunches and dinners.

We try to keep the cost of the events we attend reasonable. Some events are free, others have ticket prices of $15-$45. You can attend your first event for free, but after that you will be asked to contribute $10 annually to cover group costs.

Suggestions for new events are always welcome, and all members are encouraged to organise events.

This is a group with a focus on active and meaningful participation. While we are a friendly, flexible and relatively rule-free group, we do request that all members:

    attend at least one event every six months

    only RSVP to events they really intend to attend

    change their RSVP and let the event organiser know if they are unable to attend an event at the last minute.

    pay the $10 annual fee. 

Please only join this group, if you are willing to commit to attending events! If you want to join only to attend a single event we're running, your application will be rejected. We are interested in members who want  to engage meaningfully with other members.
