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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
Seal Pup Watching Day Trip – Saturday 28 November
Donna Nook Nature Reserve on the Lincolnshire Coast is one of the best places in the UK to see seals giving birth to their pups. A small group of us are interested in going and making a day of it on Saturday 28 November. I’m thinking that we’ll find a tea shop during the day and take some packed lunch for food. We’ll probably leave around 10am, and get there around 12pm. If you would like to come along let me know. All welcome.
November Nottingham Group Meal: Kayal, Hockley Nottingham
The next Nottingham group meal will be at Kayal; an authentic Southern Indian restaurant based in the quirky Hockley area of Nottingham. The date is set for the 20th November with a start time of 8pm.
The Kayal is a sensational restaurant. It offers South Indian cuisine. There are few restaurants that can compete with the Kayal: it’s is a million miles away from your generic curry house. If you’ve never tasted South Indian cuisine, expect a treat. Don’t take my word for it, Kayal has won numerous awards and deservedly so. Kayal takes the term “authentic” to another level!
