Welcome to our Socials page where you’ll find all the info on upcoming socials. Full details are listed below. 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!
Ceilidh – The Boat & Horses, Beeston – Friday 4th September – 7:45pm
Fancy a spot of swinging your partner around and around?? If you would like to burl away the hours on a Friday night with some Scottish dancing, do come along.
Ceilidhs are very sociable events and always filled with breathless gigglers and don’t worry if you’re not sure of the steps, you’ll soon learn.
Schuggie will explain when to ‘burl’ and ‘scootch’. The dances will be to recorded music with lots of friendly folk to get everyone joining in.
Cost – £4
