Welcome to our Socials page where you’ll find out about our upcoming day trips, nights out and adventure activities around Nottingham and Derby. We aim to fill the calendar with varied and fun events so if you want an event adding or have any ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Regular pub meets are held once a month in both Derby and Nottingham. These are great fun whether you’re new or have been with the group for years. Share stories of walks, have a drink and catch up with friends.
Group meals are held regularly in Derby and Nottingham. We try to vary the choice (and cost) of cuisine on offer so keep checking back and see if there are any meals you fancy. If you’d like to see your favourite restaurant on there, tell us about it!
One off events are always welcomed. Fancy horse-riding, ice skating, Go Ape? If you want it, just tell us and we’ll make it happen.
See you in the pub soon!
Opening Date for Sign Up: Annual general meeting on 20th October
Those with keen eyes may have noticed that there has been very little communication about this event. But it will be well worth the wait!
I can now confirm we will be staying in the lap of luxury at the 4* Castleton YHA, with breakfast included. And for those with feasting on the brain we will be eating at the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Inn, who will be providing a superb three course Christmas Menu followed by tea, coffee and mice pies. After which we can move to the bar to continue the festivities by sampling some of the fine drinks and festive atmosphere.
There will of course also be some stunning walks, hopefully with good weather. There will be one walk on the Saturday and another on the Sunday. The exact routes, grades and lengths are to be confirmed.
We have reserved 30 places for the bargain price of £50.45 per person. This includes the accommodation and the meal. Please note, this is slightly less spaces than were available last year, and these weekends have proved very popular, so there is a chance it could sell out on the night. A reserve list will be in place.
Those choosing to make their own plans are welcome to come to some or all of the weekend. The walks are open to all, and there is capacity for a few more at the dinner table, though you will need to check availability with the pub. Price for the meal only is £24.95.
If you plan to come and have any special dietary requirements please let us know when booking.
Any other queries please get in touch with Claire Taylor – 07858 915 624
6:15 PMDerby Cathedral
Get yourself in the festive mood with a recording of the Radio Derby Christmas carol service at Derby cathedral. Entry is on a first come first served basis and from personal experience I plan to meet outside at 18:15 to ensure we will all get a seat. There are several car parks close by as well as on street parking and a short walk for most bus services serving central Derby. The service starts at 19:30 so there will be quite a long delay between getting seated and the service starting.
A Winters Evening Social
It's that time of year again and the Christmas Markets are everywhere. Gavin and Rachael have therefore arranged an evening of entertainment. For those who like to keep warm on a cold's winter evening, we will start with ice-skating in Nottingham's Market Square at the 7pm session. Tickets are £9.50 and can be obtained from Nottingham Winter Wonderland.
There will also be chance to partake of mulled wine for those who still need a little warming. From here we will progress to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem (Castle Road, NG1 6AD). This pub, built into the rocks on which the Castle stands, is the oldest in England and has a wide range of ales, craft beers, cocktails and (if required) more mulled wine.
For more details contact (Gavin Kerr) or Rachael Drewery.
