What we're about

Out & About is a group of friends brought together through our shared interest in socialising, making friends and helping people.

We are the local Branch of a national membership organisation called The Oddfellows covering Preston and surrounding areas as well as Blackpool and Lancaster. We offer you the great opportunity to make new friends and enjoy a variety of activities. We hold a range of events from dining out, theatre trips, days out and quiz nights, plus much more!

Everyone is welcome to come along to our events although most of our members tend to be over the age of 40. We're always looking for new ideas and things to do so please feel free to make suggestions too.

For further information contact the social organiser on the details below.

We look forward to welcoming you on our socials very soon!
