Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I arrive at the event?

You will be met and greeted by Liz and Barbara and then introduced to other members as they arrive. We take the time to get to know you and to help you feel at ease with new people.

What if I don’t get on with the person I am seated next to for the meal?

We move people around after each course. This is a good way to get to know new people quickly and safely.

How frequently does the Social Supper Club meet?

We organise two supper clubs each month.

What happens at the supper club?

When you arrive, our hosts welcome you and introduce you to other members and guests over a pre-dinner drink. You are then seated according to the Seating Plan for that evening and the evening starts with the first course. Once that is finished and cleared away we move every other person to a new seat so they can get to talk to new people. We repeat this after the next course so that by the end of the evening you have had time to socialise with several members or guests.

Are you planning to offer any other social events?

We are indeed and that depends on what members are interested in. We are planning a cocktail evening with a mixologist; trips to gastro pubs for lunch events; and potentially a weekend away in the Lake District but this all depends on what members want to do to expand their social circles.

What if I’m not 50 yet and would like to join?

Not a problem – this is a social club that aims to help you build new friendship groups in a safe and fund environment.

Can I bring a friend?

Of course you can – the more the merrier.

What if I’m not single but still looking to make new friends?

Not a problem. Come along and meet new people. It’s all about the friendships that will grow from socialising.

I don’t live in the Ribble Valley – can I still come?

If you are happy to travel then please do come along. We’d love to meet you.
