Social calendar

Our aim is to provide events and activities for all members of our collective. We also advertise other Finland related events in the area, whether or not they are organised by us. You are most welcome to everything we organise, from picnics in the park (including a game of pesäpallo) to pub nights (for over 18's). If you would like to have a point of contact to feel more comfortable coming for the first time, give our social secretary a shout and they will make sure there is someone to take you under their wing. But we are all very welcoming and friendly, so just say " Finns are such great people" and you are sure to find friends. See below our social calendar and tag along!
