About Us

Basingstoke Friends is the club to get more out of life! 

Come and join in the fun, great people, great activities all for only £15 a year!

Basingstoke Friends is a Basingstoke based social and leisure activity club with a difference - you can organise events for the calendar!

Our members are generally graduates, professionals, students and other people with similar interests who want to enjoy an interesting social life.  We welcome anyone that enjoys taking part in social activities whether they are single or part of a couple to be a member of our group.  

Basingstoke Friends members mostly come from Basingstoke and the surrounding North Hampshire area. Between them, they organise and host around 10-20 events a month.  We have around 30 paid up members across North Hampshire for you to meet and plus lots more Pay As You Go people in our free Meetup Groups.

Our club Diary and What's On Calender is bursting with events!


Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique

We are also the main sponsors and organisers for the Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique Meetup Group in conjunction with the British Science Association. Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique is the leading Science and Technology talks and debating group in the North Hampshire area.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, everyone is welcome to talks that explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.

The talks and debates are free to attend and are open to everyone. They are usually held on the last working Monday of the month from 7.30pm at The Tea Bar in London Street at the Top of Town.

All we ask is that you buy drinks and refreshments to support the Tea Bar who provide us with the use of their excellent venue.

Join the fun, take part in exciting activities in a friendly social environment.  

We are a not-for-profit club for everyone from their 20s upwards.  Basingstoke Friends welcomes both singles and couples as members.   Many of our events are either free or run at cost price for members so are considerably less expensive than many comparable clubs and societies.
 

BaBasingsto Friends is a great way to make new friends and a hassle-free way to develop your social life!

Come along and meet the members of Basingstoke Friends 
at our Tuesday Social Night at The Maidenhead Inn from 8pm.
