Social programme

Discover London and beyond and make life-long friends


We arrange a variety of events for you to get to know your peers and discover London.

Make the most of our free and ticketed events and our recommendations of things to do, from sampling the thriving food scene to discovering the city’s hidden gems! Below are some examples of the types of events we'll be running this year. The final schedule of social events will be sent to offer holders two weeks before their session starts.
