What we're about

Every friend or partner started with the first hello!

We aim to provide a safe environment for you to make new friends and widen your social circle. We know how daunting it is for ladies to come alone to events so we can even put ladies coming alone in touch with each other beforehand. We'd like to offer this to you too guys but we know how strange you would think it was if we said we could network you with other men beforehand lol! We can only suggest that you arrive at the start of the event when we can properly introduce you into a mixed group of new arrivals and ease you in gently.

We have members from 30 but the majority are 35 - 55 with older than this too even 60s. We don't mind younger or older but we must state that this is our majority.

How to show your INTEREST to get more information: Please click on TICK on meetup to become a member and to receive further information about our exclusive events where we take over the whole venue and the only people attending are registered with us for the evening. This way we feel that we are providing a safe environment as the party later is not open to the general public

Come and drink, socialise and dance (if you want to) - and if you meet someone it is an ❤️ 'ICING ON THE CAKE' ❤️

A group monthly for socialising, dancing, for people 35 +. Even if you cant dance, or disco is not your thing, it is still good to get out and chat to other sociable sorts and make new friends.

16 days Holiday in Thailand in January 2019

Mode Sathorn Hotel  

After the festive season lets escape from the chilly, bitter, winter months of January and venture out to the far east during their highest peak season for some well deserved vitamin D.

Text Julie on[masked] with full name and email if you would like the link to book. RSVP ONLY DOES NOT BOOK YOU FOR THE EVENT PLEASE NOTE. All bookings are prepaid via our website. If you only RSVP the Meet Up system will send you a message saying you are booked but please ignore this message as you would have needed to have prepaid beforehand to register and have the ticket text on your mobile from our number when you arrive. Your name will also be on the guest list if you have booked. Dress code is suit trousers and smart, plain long sleeve shirt as a minimum for men. Can even wear black tie suits if you have them guys. Ladies it's smart dress code so no jeans and you can wear your dressy long dresses if you like for this Christmas bash. You can wear any colour dress by the way ladies. The numbers attending are always far more than you will see on any of the 8 Meet Up groups where our events are shown. Our parties are also promoted on Skiddle, Event Brite and our own website. We also have a big database of existing members as our club was launched in 1994. The Conservatory is a spectacular venue with a high, glass roof, big dance floor with podium in the middle and palm trees coming out of the floor. Intros at 7pm this event in mixed groups followed by our Social Circle at 7.45pm to get everyone chatting and then the party with our amazing DJ Carlo until 12.30am this venue. Members can still carry on chatting in the hotel main bar downstairs when our event has finished . Tickets are £17.75 including the ice-breaker and the party with DJ. This is prepaid via our link if new as everyone is registered with confirmed details to maintain a safe environment. ADDITIONAL ICE-BREAKER THIS EVENT We will give one colour raffle ticket to the ladies and another colour ticket to the men at 9pm when most people have had a chance to arrive. The idea is to find the person of the opposite sex with the matching number and the first 15 couples back to the DJ win a cash prize. This should get everyone mixing and should be great fun. FEMALE NETWORKING If coming alone ladies please let us know as we can put you in touch with other ladies coming alone on the female networking beforehand. Obviously you will meet lots of men at the events but ladies usually feel safer if coming alone with other ladies. Once again, please text me on[masked] with full name and email if you would like the link to book our big Valentines Party Sat Feb 9th.
