Monday 28th November
Think of yourself as a bit of a card shark? Always thought of yourself as a bit of a James Bond with the ultimate bluffing skills?
Well now is the time to show off your skills!
Friday night poker is an intermediate level poker game, not suitable for beginners. It is just a bit of fun with low stakes so don't worry if you're not an expert, you'll just need to know the rules already and be able to jump into a game.
Get yourself a drink, pull up a chair, and get your best poker face at the ready!
"When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the answer."
Sherlock Unlock is the hot new escape game in London. The aim is simple: one team, 60 minutes, one goal - find the exit!
Film club is our monthly movie night. We head to different cinema each month to watch a mixture of big realises and films which offer food for thought.
Meeting just before the film starts to grab tickets and then heading for a quick drink afterwards to discuss our thoughts.
This month we are going to see the latest instalment in J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World to grace our cinema screens, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Tuesday 29th November
What better way to get into the festive spirit than heading to the everyone's favourite Christmas wonderland? Hyde Park once again opens its doors to the masses and welcomes all those looking for that extra bit of Christmas cheer!
Winter Wonderland is filled with all things fun and magical. Whether you fancy going for a skate, checking out the Magical Ice Kingdom, browsing the Christmas markets, going on the giant wheel, or just heading for a bratwurst and a mulled wine, they really do have everything you could ever wish for from the ultimate Christmas experience.
Wednesday 30th November
The Science Museum’s Lates are a free adult-only event that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month.
If you've not been before, you can expect themed exhibitions, talks and activities, with topics ranging from sex and alcohol to climate change. This month, the theme is "Big Data - How safe is your data?"
We'll be heading down for a couple of hours of crazy and intersting fun so make sure you sign up today and don't miss out!
Book club has had a makeover and this time we're taking 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.
To start us off, this month we’re reading Oscar Wilde’s most popular book, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Named as number 27 in The Guardian’s 100 best novels.
Thursday 1st December
We're back with our Bob foodie evenings and this time were grabbing a pizza!
Join your fellow bobbers for a delicious dinner and some great conversation. This is a very relaxed social. Everyone will be turning up alone so it's a great chance to meet some new people and make some new friends.
Whether you like meat feast, seafood, or a good old fashioned margherita there's something on the menu for everyone.
It's been a tough week and you need a break. And what better way to warm the soul than with a hot curry and some great company!
Join us for a Thursday evening of engaging and random conversation with fellow thinkers. Awkward silences are a thing of the past as we delve into some delicious Indian food and enjoy a chilled out evening of relaxed conversation.
Bring your own bottle, choose your own spice level and let's get this BALTI started! (geddit?)
This is simply a chance for new members to pop in for a drink and meet one of the team!
It's the perfect social if you're new to the community, or are feeling a bit nervous. It'll give you the opportunity to meet someone from Team Bob, who can answer any questions you have about the website, the app or the socials.
You'll also get to meet one of our volunteer Hosts, who provide a friendly face to greet you at the door and will never leave you sat alone in a corner.
Nothing hectic - just a few drinks and a chat to get the weekend started!
Friday 2nd December
Do you know your Bee Gees from your Beatles?! Or your Mick Jagger from your Rod Stewart?
Well now's the time to brush up on some of your music knowledge as 'Never Mind the Bob-Cocks' Music Quiz returns!
This is not your average music quiz where we just play a bunch of songs and ask you to name them. Expect to be far more entertained than that! There’ll be a variety of different rounds, some awesome tunes, mash-ups and videos – and some surprises in store too.
Get ready to be entertained because we're making a song and dance about this one!
Saturday 3rd December
A new winter festival is coming to Portobello Road this Christmas.
The home of Notting Hill Carnival and the world-famous vintage market is having a festive makeover. Local musicians, pop-up stalls, a carnival float and Christmas rum shack.
So if you're not quite ready for jingle bells and mince pies why not come along for a carnival themed Christmas?
Our winter treasure/scavenger hunt is back and this year it's going to be bigger and better than ever!
This will be an extra special festive hunt with plenty of special bonuses thrown in. Your team will be given a thinking bob team mascot and they will be faced with a number of weird and wonderful challenges to gain points for your team.
Will you be in team penguin, team snowman OR will you be joining one of our new team mascots and be triumphant? Join us and see!
Expect a good mix of tradition, history and Christmas fun with lots of mince pie and mulled wine stops on the way...

Set in the picturesque streets surrounding the Abbey, Bath Christmas Market is one of the most magical yuletide markets in the UK.
Soak up the sights, smells and festive atmosphere as Bath's city centre is transformed into an enchanting Christmas shopper's paradise.
We guarantee the aroma of warming mulled wine and freshly baked mince pies, enjoyed with a generous sprinkling of Christmas carols will get even the biggest of humbugs into the Christmas spirit!
Join us for a quiet afternoon of tea, cakes and great conversation!
Similar to our popular Conversation Dinner Parties, this will be a relaxed social for those looking to try some great cake and enjoy some light-hearted conversation.
"A cup of tea is an excuse to share great thoughts with great minds". And cake. Of course we need cake.
