Social evenings are held on the third Thursday of each month except in December, which is on the second Thursday. We meet in the upstairs room of a pub called The Chapel at 48 Chapel Street, Marylebone, London, NW1 5DP (map).

Socialising starts in the pub from 7pm and the main event kicks off at about 8pm in the upstairs room.

Sometimes we have a purely social evening or a quiz night, but socials are talks and slide or movie presentations by outside speakers or talented club members on climbing and mountaineering related topics.

In November, we have an ever popular annual dinner-dance at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis, Snowdonia. See the meets programme for more info!
