What we're about

This is a group for all those who have the desire to travel near and far and have fun making new friends whilst doing so. The aim of this group is to put up a varied selection of holidays and short breaks to suit all individuals and pocket. I enjoy putting trips together in a cost effective way, why pay more joining a tour when you can do the same at a fraction of the cost. There is no doubt that certain places do need a proper organised guide but why not find a good price by booking just that little bit early. As a member of this group you are all most welcome to make suggestions for any trip you think may be of interest to others. It would be nice to get to know other members on a regular basis so that we are not total strangers when we decide to travel together, therefore, we shall have a monthly get together for drinks. This is why I have named this group the 50+ Social Travellers.

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 8pm 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-breakers 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. Text me on[masked] with full name and email requesting link to book. 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.

BIG Singles Party in London Max 250 Sat March 2nd in Regents Place

Union Bar, Regent's Place

It's always a great atmosphere at Union Regents Place and always max 250 each time. We end up turning people away when we are full. Picture above is from one of our events at this venue. Join us for a fun night of socialising and dancing with intros at the bar in mixed groups, our Social Circle ice-breaker at 7.45pm and then the party with DJ who rocks until 12.30am. Tickets £13.75 booked via our site. Text Julie on[masked] for the link to book stating the date you are interested in attending with full name and email. Please note that RSVP only does not book you even if you receive a message from Meet Up saying that you are booked. Everyone attending our events has confirmed details with their booking so this maintains a safe environment for people to meet and it also makes a big difference to the sort of people attending . We take over the whole venue for exclusive use and the door is staffed all night so it is not possible to just turn up later if you are not registered and on the guest list as booked. Book soon as we always end up turning lots of members away by the date of the event. We cannot take new bookings on the day as always full by then. We always reach max 250 as events are promoted on 8 Meet Up groups, Skiddle and Event Brite as well as our own club's website. It is always a much higher number booked than shown on any of the Meet Up groups. Our club has been going since 1994 and we have the biggest singles parties in London with a very cosmopolitan mix of sociable singles in London and from the surrounding suburbs. FEMALE NETWORKING If female and coming alone, we can put you in touch with other ladies booked who are also coming alone and would like to hear from you. We know this makes a big difference to encouraging ladies to come to our events as they feel much more comfortable and it is nice if there is someone also going home your way after the event. We have members from later 20s/early 30s but we would say the majority age range is 35 - 55 at our parties with younger and older than this. Hope to see you all soon. Regards Julie Davies[masked] (text me on this number for link to book)
