What we're about

Are you looking for social networking and fun times at social events involving music, adventure, dancing, walking, culture, networking and the outdoors. This is also the group for enjoying dining out and nightlife with singles as well as couples and professional networking in London.

London can be lonely place. It can be even more isolated if you are single, a bit older or if you are new in the city and do not have any friends or social network in the city.

We want to bring together like minded people who prefer to socialise at fun (and at times unusual) events, ideally in relatively quiet locations including bars, restaurants and parks where people can meet each other and establish connections and friendships beyond mere acquaintances.

Our meetups are carefully organised to ensure we are small enough in number so that we remember most names and exchange numbers with many by the end of it. We will also try and maintain a reasonable balance between women and men at our events. We will strive to offer a comforting and warm group which is international in outlook with a high degree of sensitivity and warmth.

You may be single, attached, married, separated or a grand dad! (this is not a group exclusively for singles either and couples are very welcome!) Please be open to new friendships and experiences. We could go to bars, restaurants, cruises, trips, concerts, sports events, holidays, dances and parties, yoga etc. and so the meetups will be diverse.

This club will be about friendships and connections but above all having fun together with friends.

I look forward to meeting you at one of our meetups soon

With our best wishes and regards

Anna and Dan Raj

30 to 45 - Speed friending! No pressure way to make friends! Over 30 expected

Please join us as we help you make new friendships with both ladies and gentlemen without any of the pressure, shyness and nervousness normally associated with meeting new people. This is for ladies and gentlemen between the ages of 30 to 45. (It is fine if you are a few years either side of these parameters) For our last Speed Friending social we had over 40 members present and this time we expect over 50! Please click on the link below to purchase your tickets in advance: Eventbrite: https://speedlondonfriend.eventbrite.co.uk OR Fatsoma: https://fatso.ma/LA8p WHY SPEED FRIENDING? In our speed friending, we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships. One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group. Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate. Here’s how it will be set-up: 1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed standing place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other. 2) Martin will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. He will indicate when you should move to the next person. 3) We will meet from 6.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 7.00pm. 4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 7.00 pm onwards and continue till about 8.45pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway. 5) Our function room is booked for Martin /Meetup. We will have a reserved area downstairs for our members. Please be sure to read the events board to know which room is ours on the day. You can also ask the security guard on the ground floor. 6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. Martin will welcome you and help you get comfortable. 7) Happy Hours until 7 pm and pizza for £5 only.
