THE SOCIAL GROUP offers the opportunity to meet people, make friends, have fun, and enjoy a better social life.  If you're looking for good times and good company, you've come to the right place - WELCOME TO THE SOCIAL GROUP!

We offer a wide choice of events / services to enjoy.  You join as a Member.  Then book what you want to do from a choice of events / services.  Offering you the opportunity to go out, socialise, and HAVE FUN! 

It's ideal if you are looking for some company, want an easy way to make new friends, would like more to do instead of sitting in watching the telly every evening, if you are new to the area, if you are separated or divorced, if you find yourself on your own, if you are looking to connect with people, if you feel you would benefit from improving your social skills, if you want to network and build up a circle of friends, and most of all if you are looking to enjoy a better social life. 

If you are single and seeking that special someone, we've had lots of romances happen amongst people taking part and even weddings. THE SOCIAL GROUP has proved an easy and successful way to find romance in a normal unpressured environment - while taking part on a Social Group Holiday, at a Social Group Walk or Activity, at a Social Group Party, or at a Social Group Dinner. 

Prior to joining you can see the many hundreds of photographs we have online on our websites and social media pages, which should give you a very good idea of things we have done previously.  As we've been going for many years, we feel we can offer something for just about everyone.  There should be plenty to suit, no matter what age you are.  Some events are aimed at people in their 20's and 30's, some at people in their 40's and 50's, and some tend to suit older ages.  Everyone is made welcome and many events attract a mixture of ages.  What's on offer changes every month, with us doing our best to offer a choice of things to appeal to a variety of tastes and pockets. 

All of this is organised by our experienced team, headed by Andrew & Cathy, who host many of the social events, activities, party nights, days out, weekend breaks, and group holidays.  With all the hard work 'behind the scenes' done for you, with lots of effort to promote the group to bring all of you together in the first place, with months spent researching and typing out an interesting and varied programme of things to do, with the exclusive Social Group Magazine written and published just for you, with all the bookings for events / services carefully monitored and professionally managed, and with many long hours spent in the office on your behalf.



There's lots of information about us on our websites and social media pages, with plenty of photographs of real people enjoying actual Social Group events, activities, and holidays.  To find out more, contact us for a FREE INFO PACK by email, stating your name and the town / area you live in - we'll send you a JOIN FORM with more information about events / services on offer and our CURRENT PRICES.  When you are ready to get started, give us a call in the Social Group Office on 03456 121 770.  It's easy to JOIN as a Social Group Member and get you started straight away.  You can pay by card today, then send on the paperwork afterwards, ensuring you benefit from any special offer prices.

THE Social Group  

Please don't confuse us with anyone else.  We are not the same as anyone else.  We are THE Social Group! 



THE SOCIAL GROUP was originally set up as a 'group of friends' where people could join in and go out to the social events offered by our team, which is headed by Andrew & Cathy.  

We believe in offering a personal approach and high levels of customer service.  We take a great deal of pride in all the services we offer, and when you join The Social Group, we believe you will soon see the difference.  This isn't an amateur club who don't follow the regulations, and it isn't run by some faceless corporation in London or Los Angeles who are more interested in your money than you as a human being.  We work very hard to manage our events properly and professionally, and it's our belief that if it's called 'social' it should be all about real contact with real people.  So we will speak to you in person over the phone and we will be personally hosting many of the events, on the ground to sort out lots of the activities, and travelling with you on many of the holidays.  It's our intention to do our very best to look after everyone who joins The Social Group.  We started this to find friends ourselves, so it's our sincere hope that many of you will genuinely become our own friends and stay with us for many years to come.



All brand new Social Group Members are posted a current copy of the exclusive double-issue SOCIAL GROUP MAGAZINE!  How everything works, along with full details of our services and a WHAT'S ON programme of social events can be found in the current issue of our printed magazine, usually over 140+ pages in total, and written just for you!

We do have lots of information on our websites and social media pages, but those of you who like having something printed to hold in your hands to read will be pleased that you can join, read what's on in the magazine, and book by phone.  The tech is great to show everyone what we've run previously, but we are mindful to make things as easy as possible when it comes to booking for things and taking part.

It should be straightforward.  Simply read SOCIAL GROUP MAGAZINE.  See what's on offer.  Then contact us to book for events / services, subject to availability.  Our team try to include plenty of local SOCIAL EVENTS in all areas, such as dining out with the group at a local restaurant or country pub.  Plus, there's a whole variety of party nights and live entertainment, as well as a range of walks and outdoor activities.  Everyone is welcome to take part in events near to them.  But there's even more choice if you are prepared to attend events in other areas too.  For some special things, we find people are often tempted to travel a bit further. 



No matter where you live, you are welcome to take part on our international SOCIAL GROUP HOLIDAYS.  No-one to go on holiday with?  Go on holiday with our group!  We offer a choice of really great resort destinations and other people to enjoy the travel experience with.  You are welcome to do your own thing during the day or choose to join in with the group, chilling by the pool or on the beach, and with us offering some superb day trip excursions.  With everyone coming together to enjoy socialising over dinner in the evenings.  Lots of good food and good company!

Double rooms, twin rooms, and single occupancy rooms are usually available.  We can also offer optional ROOM-SHARE for those amongst you looking to save money, by finding you another participant to share accommodation costs with.  Discounts on all holidays for Members, but guests, family, and friends are also welcome.

Don't miss the boat - PLEASE BOOK EARLY!  If you want to take part on our next holidays, please get in touch!  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

We currently run THE SOCIAL GROUP in these areas...





People living in other areas often take part on SOCIAL GROUP HOLIDAYS, and it's common for people to fly out from a convenient local airport near to them and rendezvous with everyone else on arrival at the foreign airport.  Everyone is made welcome.  If you are looking for people to go on holiday with, no matter where you live, you can go on holiday with us.  Get in touch without delay and book to go with us!

People living in other areas of the UK are also welcome to join (for a reduced price) as Associate Members, where you are kept in the loop with what's going on, can take part on UK 'Hotel & Party' Weekends or Music Festival Weekends, and can join in with events happening in the South West when you are in the area.  Get in touch if you want to be involved.

We are also keen to find people to run a branch of THE SOCIAL GROUP for us in other parts of the UK.  If you might be interested in earning a useful extra income as a Social Group Organiser please get in touch.  You will take on a SOCIAL GROUP FRANCHISE, giving you exclusive rights to your area, with you offering a programme of social events, dining out, parties, live entertainment, walks, and activities in your local area.  It's lots of fun, and you'll have the chance to meet a lot of people and make a lot of friends, and if you don't mind getting stuck in and working hard, you'll be able to make a big success of this, with lots of assistance and backing from Andrew & Cathy at head office to support your endeavours.  We can help you avoid all the pitfalls and get set up and started in your area.    It's very fulfilling work, helping people to be less lonely, helping people make more of their free time, enabling people to try new things, make friends, and make the most of their lives.
