23rd August 2015

Here are 11 things we know aren’t true about Londoners (at least, not at thinking bob), and the photos to prove it…

Every month we host over 55 socials designed to bring you closer to other Londoners. Whether it’s a murder mystery evening, a treasure hunt round London’s fantastic museums, a pub quiz with real buzzers or just a trip to the pub, our members are never short of something to do and people to meet!

Coming on your own? Hate small talk? No problem! Our events take the awkwardness out of making new friends.
