Monday 25th March
Mother's Day is on Sunday (you're welcome for the warning) - still presentless? Well look no further because today we're decorating biscuits in honour of all the mums out there.
Join your fellow Bobbers for a feel-good evening of sugary fun hand decorating a biccy for your wonderful mum on Mother's Day.
Why not spend your evening playing a spot of Darts in Flight Club's beautifully designed venue at Victoria.
They've reinvented darts for the twenty first century, with fast-paced multiplayer games, ground breaking dart-tracking technology, instant scoring and a slick and intuitive user interface. And with multiple throw lines to level the playing field, even a complete beginner can win on the day.
Try your hand – you’ll be hooked in no time!
This is a fun friendly take on darts so don’t worry if you’ve never played before.
Tuesday 26th March
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.
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.
Wednesday 27th March
Tonight we're being transported to the South of France as we head for cocktails and a game of Pétanque at London's only indoor Pétanque court.
A Provençal variant of boules, Pétanque literally translates to 'foot fixed (to the ground)'.
A game that can be easily played with a cocktail in one hand, this is a game sure to cheer those humpday blues.
Thursday 28th March
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.
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 because this curry night is second to Naan.
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!
Friday 29th March
We're back with our interpretation of everyone's favourite survey gameshow, Family Fortunes!
Bobily Fortunes is a game of general knowledge, fastest finger first action and of course hilarious incorrect answers followed by the infamous 'X' buzzer!
Can you beat your opposing team to become the Bobily champions? Join us and find out!
Saturday 30th March
If you want a slice of old Bombay then look no further, as Dishoom brings the old Irani cafes of Bombay to London. A unique atmosphere and flavours that will transport to to urban India means there’s plenty of spice, both on and off the plate.
Join your fellow bobbers for a delicious brunch and some great conversation.
Take your party game to new heights with this Silent Disco at The View From The Shard.
Don your headphones, choose your tunes, and dance the night away as 3 DJ's battle it out to give you a night of great music, great company, great fun and of course spectacular views.
Tune in to the best in pop, rock and party classics and feel on top of the world on top of The Shard.
Sunday 31st March
It has been described as an industrial cathedral and it is easy to see why.
Built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette for London's sewage system and opened in 1865, Crossness Pumping Station is a Grade 1 Listed building and features some of the most spectacular ornamental Victorian cast ironwork found in the world today.
Today it is open for you to see. You will also be able to see one of the four engines, Prince Consort, in steam.
It was The Who that famously hoped to die before they got old; a morbid philosophy in 1965 and one that the now aged rockers look less committed to with every year that passes…
…but what do the great philosophical traditions of the world have to tell us about the meaning of death, why we die, and how those left behind should respond to it.
As Pub Philosophy goes all macabre, only the dead would want to want to miss it!
