Meet & Greets

The IWC’s ‘Meet & Greets’ normally take place on the third Thursday of every month, with the exceptions of July and August, when no meetings take place, and June, when there is an end-of-year event. A ‘Meet & Greet’ meeting might be the opportunity to visit an Embassy, watch guest entertainers or find out more about a range of different cultures, as well as have some refreshments, chat to friends and meet new people. The September and February meetings are opportunities to sign up for our interest groups.

Members can attend any and all Meet & Greets but must remember to bring their membership badge, otherwise a guest fee of 300 Rubles will be charged. Some meetings may require sign-up in advance, and if visiting an Embassy, members should remember to bring their passports.

For Dates for Meet & Greets this year please see the Dates for your Diaries section on home page.
