Saturday nights might be in a nice restaurant, down the pub, or at someone's house

What we do?

We meet twice a week - Thursday evenings and Saturday evenings.

Thursday events include games and quizzes, and often these have been created or even invented by the members! We don't get professionals in to run them, as we run them ourselves, so things don't always go to plan, but that's half the fun!

All the Thursday events are meant to be light-hearted and fun, played with 3 teams competing against each other - you just join one of them on the night. A chocolate prize normally awaits the winning team, but these are soon shared around!

And if you would like to run an event yourself then we are always looking for people who can run a game or quiz.

Saturdays are different as the events could be held anywhere around Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin or Baldock. Usually these are meals out, going to the pub, or house events, but we are always looking for other ideas!

And just like Thursdays, if you'd like to help organise a Saturday night event that would be great - sometimes this might be as little as phoning to book a restaurant.

Coming down for the first time

The best time to come along for the first time is on Thursday evenings - you'll be able to see what goes on and what's coming up.   Your first Thursday night is FREE

It's always slightly nerve-racking going to places for the first time, and we understand that. You are welcome to email in advance if you have any specific questions, but really nothing quite beats just giving it a try.

If you arrive at around 8.15pm then there will be a few people in the bar area who will give you a bit more information about the club, and it's a perfect opportunity to ask any questions.

If you arrive after 8.30pm then no problem - as you come in through the main doors, turn immediate left through another door and head to the room at the end of the short corridor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much?
A. The price for a Thursday night event is just £2, while at the weekend it really depends on what event is on, so for example a house party would not really cost anything while a meal out or bowling would be the normal prices. Annual membership is £15 in the first year and £25 thereafter, which entitles you to come down to any Stevenage event, and to any event organised by other clubs around the UK.

Q. Is there a free trial?
A. Yes, entry is FREE on your first Thursday night, and you can come down 4 times before deciding whether to join or not. So come down on Thursday and give it a try!

Q. Who joins?
A. The club has members from Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin, Baldock and the surrounding areas, and the vast majority of us are in our 30's and 40's. Although we are a friends club rather than a singles club, we do have a good mixture of singles and couples.
