Britsoc Chairman’s Report | Feb 2016

Dear Britsoc members and friends,

You’ll be pleased to know that our Christmas Charity Ball raised over €3,000 for the VUmc: VU university medical enter. Our next big event is the unmissable Burns’ Night on 30th Jan 2016.  Like the Christmas Ball, this popular event sold out straight away.

You’re all probably looking to keep your new year’s resolutions, so I have some options for you.  If  you’re looking  to get a bit fitter, then you are welcome to join our Badminton, Squash and Scottish Dancing clubs—they are all looking for new members.

Please also take a look at our Events Calendar or Meetup page for details:

I have some exciting events on the horizon that include:

  • An exclusive G&T and whisky tasting which I hope to announce very soon.
  • This year we celebrate Shakespeares 400th anniversary (and St David’s day!) on the 23rd April. Tickets will go on sale soon for that event.
  • In June we have the Queens 90th Birthday.  I hope to arrange a High Tea Garden party to coinside with this event.
  • For Rugby fans, we’re really looking to organising an event around the Six Nations this year, which promises to be more competitive than ever.

Our social media is going strong with over 1,100 people on our Facebook page and 300 people on our Meetup site.  With an ever growing list of interesting events we can hopefully attract more people.

And don’t forget that becoming a Britsoc member is now free. Simply sign up here to get advance notice of events—which sell out really fast— and get on the reading list of our free monthly Britsoc Magazine. Written by our tireless expat reporters and bloggers.

We are always looking to get some more volunteers and organisers.  In the very near future, I will announce an event that will hopefully attract people who are willing to help us organise events.

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon at one or more of our events.
