Meet new friends at our weekly socials.

Our socials take place every Wednesday and Friday.




Our weekly socials are a great way for you to meet new friends from all over the world. Many of our members regularly attend these events as a chance to catch up with friends they have made through the International Society. 

Every Wednesday and Friday, our members come together for tea, coffee and board games. We have a large selection of games for you to enjoy, but please feel free to bring one to play at the event!

It’s normal to feel nervous if you are joining us for the first time. We are all very friendly and if you feel like you need more support, please speak to one of our staff.


Frequently Asked Questions

When are the Weekly Socials?

The weekly socials take place every Wednesday and Friday, 3 – 5pm. 

Can I come and 'try' a session of the Socials without becoming a member?

Unfortunately, no. Places are limited for our events and the socials tend to get full very quickly. You will need to register for a membership and book on to the event to attend. 

I can't make it for the Social, what should I do?

Please email us at info@internationalsociety.org.uk and we will allocate your place to the people on the waiting list.

I am a local student, can I join in the Weekly Socials?

Of course! All our members are welcome to join our Weekly Socials.
