We’ve hosted Who London’s Virtual Pub and lots of Who Londoners introduced themselves there. As we had a large group for this event, last weekend we hosted Who London’s Virtual Pub Rooms, where we chatted in lots of smaller groups and then mixed up the groups a few times.
This event is similar to our Speed-Friending event, yet we “speed-friend” in groups rather than 1-2-1s. The event was a hit: “It was good fun and nice to be able to chat to other people. Thank you!” “I would like to see more Who London virtual events.” “After 10 weeks of lockdown it was great to have human interaction and a little chat. It was well organised and managed.” “Excellent go to place. I went as invited by friend…” Just keep it up once or maybe twice a week. Hopefully after lockdown we can all meet again and enjoy a pub in real life.”
We had an interesting choice of pub room names and chose one from one of our newer Who Londoners: “The Brain Dunn Inn Room“!
Below are several comments about Who London’s Virtual Pub Rooms event. It went so well that we have now arranged our next virtual event and you’re of course invited!
We really love hosting our virtual events and do several hours of planning to ensure the event runs smoothly. These virtual events have been free until now and we can continue this for Who London members at the moment, but there will be a small fee this time for non-members to ensure we can continue running our organisation with no government funding. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon for a fun event with us.
