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!

If you would like to get all our updates/information straight to your inbox, please sign up to our mailing list by emailing our Chairperson Karoliina at

January chill out 25.01.2019 - starting at 6.30pm at The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer

As January is always hard time for everyone post-holiday season, we will start the social calendar easy. After work drinks on Friday, we will crab a corner at the Navy Volunteer (17-18 King Street, Old City, Bristol BS1 4EF) and chat the night away very casually! Everyone is most welcome, we hope to see you there!

School calendar

Our Finnish Saturday school for children and adults of all levels is held every other Saturday 10am to noon at the Coniston Community Centre. Please arrive in good time so that we can make a prompt start at 10. There is a cafe space for parents to socialize in while the children are on their lessons.
