It’s 2019, and we’ve got a lot of events planned for this year already. We’ve updated out event listings page with provisional dates already; here’s a quick run down.

Socials

London

As we always, we’re holding regular socials in London from January 2019 through December 2019. They’ll be on the first Thursday of each month. There’s no need to register, you can just turn up. The location for each event will be published on our website around a week in advance.

For the last few years, one of our volunteers – Rebecca Cooper – has done a brilliant job of organising these monthly events. Rebecca has decided she’d like to focus on other things for 2019; so we’re looking for a new party planner. If that sounds like you, get in touch!

Bristol

For 2019, we’re introducing monthly socials in a new location: Bristol. Our volunteers in the area will be organising them for the first Wednesday of each month, starting in February 2019.

Edinburgh

We’re slowly kicking off regular social events in Edinburgh. Our next one is on February – and if there’s strong demand, our volunteers are happy to keep organising them. You can check out the details and get in touch with our local organiser, Steven, on the event page.

Pride

Civil service volunteers organised many pride groups around the UK last year across departmental and national networks; and we hope to have a strong showing at other pride events this year too.

This year, we plan to take part in all 4 capital prides across the UK: Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. We’ll also be doing Pride in London a bit differently to ensure that allocations of places are fairer and more evenly distributed across various demographics and groups. More details on this, and all our other prides, will be released in the coming weeks, but we’ve added placeholder dates to our events page in the meantime.
