Escape Room - OverThrone

The King is dead, long live the King!

With no natural successor to the King the throne is up for grabs. He who raises the legendary Sword of Britain will take the throne.

Legend has it that the wily old King has hidden the sword within the castle. You are first onto the scene, explore the castle and retrieve the sword before the pretenders arrive!

Talking to Strangers!

Small tables + topic cards = more interesting conversations!

Light-hearted topic cards steer you away from the typical (often dull!) small talk that comes with meeting new people.

This event is a fun way to spark new connections with members and new people alike.

Salsa Class and 2-4-1 Cocktails

Evolving from several latino dances, Salsa has been around since the 1970s and is now one of the most best-known latin dances in the world.

Salsa classes, socials and dance-offs are popular the world over, and tonight we're heading to one of London's best Cuban bars for an evening of music, rhythm and fun!

Escape Room - Witchcraft and Wizardry

Having graduated from the school of witchcraft and wizardry, you've suddenly been brought back. Only this time, you sense something sinister at work.

The professor has gone mad. Mad with power. You've been sealed inside the room and within an hour he will extract all magic from you. Stripped of your wand and powers, you must use your wits to retrieve your wand and escape before you lose all magic forever.

Speakeasy Drinks

New is old news. It’s all about the retro as we revisit the days of America's Prohibition era in London's best speakeasy bars.

Our capital is brimming with elusive bars hidden behind unmarked doors and unassuming entrances. They invite those in the know to intimate yet raucous evenings. Join us as we sip cocktails from teacups, peruse menus hidden in books and soak up some jazz.

So, dust off your dancing shoes and dig out your map as London invites you into an underground world of illicit drinking.

Historic Pub Crawl: Primrose Hill

Of all the things this country is synonymous with, its pubs are certainly near the top of the list. The classic British boozer is a national institution and London is certainly not short of them. But how many have you ever actually visited and did you take time to look at the building around you?

Your host will have hand-selected a three or four pubs, all within close walking distance, with an interesting story to tell - it might be the setting for a notable moment in history, a unique piece of architecture, or have connections to the famous or the infamous! And it might just be tucked down a side street you never even knew was there. What they’ll all have in common is a pint of warm English beer…other drinks also available!

Dinner at The Cheese Bar

It's cold, dark, and it's January - not that we really need an excuse to head to the cheesiest place in London. Tonight we're having cheese for dinner and we can hardly Brie-lieve our luck.

The Cheese Bar in Camden Market is the first permanent restaurant of Mathew Carver, owner of the Cheese Truck. They're serving up delights such as grilled cheese sandwiches, fondue and even salad if you fancy!

So come along and make some new friends - it may be cheesy but it'll be Edam good evening!
