What we're about

This group was founded in 2005 as the 'Midlands & Beyond Group'. Over the years there have been a some ownership changes, and a name change to 'Midlands Friends'.

In October 2013 we incorporated our sister group, 'Coventry Social' and became 'Midlands Friends Social'.

One thing that hasn't changed is the reason we're here, to get people in Nuneaton, Coventry and the surrounding towns to meet up and mingle with potential new friends. We are NOT a singles/dating group, couples are most certainly welcome - all we hope is that if you're new to the area, or just bored of the old routine, that you might like to come out with us to do something a bit more interesting.

This group is FREE to join with a nominal fee once you have attended a meeting and confirm you'd like to be part of the group. Please feel free to use the 'Suggest a MeetUp' feature if there is somewhere you are going, or would like to go to, that you think others may be interested in.

We look forward to meeting you.

Book Lovers Coffee & Brunch

Serene Lounge

Coffee & informal discussion for book lovers. We are reading: The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris For readers of Schindler's List, The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas comes a heart-breaking story of the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart. In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too. So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz. Please join us for a light hearted discussion of books and other topics of interest. Next book club: Saturday 20th July Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling & Wilt in Nowhere by Tom Sharpe
