Meetup Bristol
« on: Jan 11, 2012, 02:51:20 PM »
I've just moved to Bristol about 7 months ago. Is anyone interested in poetry, walking, drama or music, and would like to meet up initially for a coffee to exchange news and views.  Look forward to hearing from you. regards, Flo.

Just curious, is there much happening in Bristol?  I've never been there before (it's on my list!) but there may well be a job opportunity come up over that way. Insider info would be great!

There are a couple of regular women's nights a month, one on a Thursday and one on a Saturday. There are a couple of local walking groups. There's a women's group called Pink Herrings who send out a monthly programme of events. There's my online group for arranging informal things, a bit like a small email version of the meet up section of the board here. There's a Thursday evening radio  programme on LGBT things. It's smaller than London of course, but there are things to do.  Things wax and wane as they do anywhere.

Cool!  And you know that Get Knitted is not far either, and I'd have to have a car for work, so I foresee road trips.  I haven't even applied for the job yet and I'm already scoping out flats on rightmove.  Hah!

Oh well, fair enough; we're probably pretty much interchangeable.
