Socialising, Eating & Drinking are amongst the greatest pleasures of life in London and not surprisingly this is a busy and popular activty. We cover everything from inexpensive pub food to sophisticated restaurants, of which London has so many. Sunday lunches as well as evening events are organised. Recent meals have included Kurdish, Filipino, Vegan, French, Indian (we have an IVC Curry Club), cheap pub grub and home cooked puddings. What better way of making new friends and meeting regular friends - this is what London IVC is all about.
The Linguists group also visit a range of European restaurants.
The Meet Your Neighbours groups focus on local social events such as pub and restaurant visits. The North London group meets every month at The Woodman in Highgate. Its programme includes Hampstead and Highgate pub crawls, restaurant meals, live music and walks. The Greenwich group meets regularly at Daveys Wine Bar and The Cutty Sark pub.
Pubbing in London We run some very civilized pub crawls and we aim to find some interesting and off the track pubs to visit. A great way of mingling as moving from one pub to another keeps the evening socially fluid.
Club Nights - at least once a month we enjoy a good sociable get together in a carefully chosen inner London pub or wine bar. These events are very popular and give members (old and new) a chance to find out more about the club and meet new people.
Parties - sometimes around a theme, are organised throughout the year. These have recently included Rock music parties, a Summer Garden party and a Halloween party.
IVC's got talent our own open mic socials attract some very talented performers with a mix of singer/songwriters, instrumentalists, spoken word and comedy.
Broadcasts - IVC has a programme of short notice events, most of them of a sociable nature and many with unusual & unexpected themes All members are kept informed by our broadcast email service and often you don't need to book.
