Escape Room: Mystery Cube

The Mystery Cube has landed - are you ready for the challenge?

It arrived without warning...
We don't know where it came from...

Do you have the skills to unlock its inner secrets and escape?

Tuesday 21st February

Junkyard Golf

Back by popular demand, Junkyard Golf is sticking around for just a bit longer and this time we're taking on their Pablo course.

The Old Truman Brewery has added a whole new load of rubbish — literally — in the form of a brand new crazy golf course. So get into the swing of things as you navigate jacuzzis, slides, speed boats, wendy houses, cows and treadmills in search of the perfect round.

Of course, no self-respecting pop-up comes without a side of street food and so expect nachos, hot dogs and the like to fuel you round the course. Add in the golf-themed cocktails and you have yourself a great night of 'crazy golf, beats, eats & booze'

Join us for an evening of engaging and somewhat random conversation with fellow thinkers. Awkward silences are a thing of the past as we delve into a series of irrelevant yet interesting QI facts and some delicious food.

This month we're headed to South America for some Peruvian cuisine.

Book Club: Catch up on the classics

Everyone is welcome as we catch up on the books on our reading list, the one's you've 'always been meaning to read'. Old or new, long or short - which one we read is up to you. At the end of each social we'll pick the next one we want to read.

So whether you love the classics or you've not yet read one, you never know whether your next favourite book is just pages away.

Cocktails and Cryptic Crosswords

Love cryptic crosswords? Or ever wondered how the hell they work? Now's your chance to give them a go!

Most of us love a quick crossword - a speedy, satisfying test of our vocabulary and general knowledge, to kill a few spare minutes or make a commute more bearable. But have you ever wondered how cryptic crosswords work? With their mysterious code and seemingly-bizarre references, they can seem uncrackable.

This is, of course, not true and they are indeed crackable: you just need to tools at hand to do it. And tonight, we're giving you those tools! If you're a beginner, we'll teach you everything you need to know.

We'll take on a couple of crosswords together as a group over a few cocktails.
