Welcome to London IVC, the best club to socialise and make new friends in London

Socialise and meet new friends with London's longest established activities and social club.

Member owned and run, the London InterVarsity Club has for 70 years offered graduates, professionals and those with similar interests a wide and varied programme of social, cultural and sporting events & activities. This includes dining out, pub evenings, wine tasting, music, festivals, local events, theatre visits, country walking, badminton, tennis and lots more.
We have a growing programme of local Meet-Your-Neighbours events. There are typically around 60 events per month all over London. We get together with associated IVCs across the country to share holiday breaks and weekends away.

We will inform you of all our events with just a weekly E-Newsletter - you will not be bombarded with emails!

A special feature of IVC is that members are encouraged to post their own events to our programme - and we give them full support to do this. So you can share your interests with other people.

In a busy world, where ever-increasing  demands can seem to leave us little time to organise our social lives, London IVC offers the opportunity to do more with our time while making new friends in a relaxed and sociable setting.

We have a stable core membership and a not-for-profit ethos - unlike many other social clubs. We aim for informal events where new members will soon feel that they are socialising with friends and can relax amongst good company. It's great to meet new people but with London IVC you also soon get to recognise familiar faces and you don't feel as if you are starting from scratch again at every event you go to.


We have members right across the age range with higher numbers in the middle decades.
 

See what we have to offer by viewing our diary. This shows most of what our members will be doing over the coming weeks and months although full details are only visible to logged in members. Like what you see? Click the join online box. You can try out the club for 3 months for £5 by paying through World Pay. Thereafter annual membership is £25. (See the FAQ page for full details).
