  • Telephone Groups

    We all miss meeting up at our local cafes and sharing a cuppa, but thanks to technology we have opened up telephone catch-up cafés! During the call we read an interesting short piece on South Bristol local history, followed by a friendly chat where we can discuss the topic and share stories and anecdotes. You don’t need to live in South Bristol to join, everyone welcome!

  • Matinee Mingles

    Matinee Mingle is a social cafe for local people, aged 60 and over, who would normally visit the theatre alone, to meet like-minded people before a show. The Mingles take place in the Piano Bar next door to the Hippodrome before selected shows, and participants are offered complementary refreshments and a chat.
