Happy New Year to you! We hope you enjoyed yourselves over the holiday. We have some exciting news concerning a special trip to see Chicago the musical, and our welcome back bash. And if that wasn't exciting enough, here's the rest of this month's news!

If you needed reminding - we're the Village Drinks Team!

We organise a happy and fun monthly social networking event for gay professionals in London and Brighton. We have over 6,000 members. We're endorsed by the Mayor of London. We even have a free on-line community. And we’re the ones that for 2008 are going to try our very best to help make our lives as gay professionals that tiny bit nicer. Promise.


Our Christmas Party last month at Café de Paris was probably one of the nicest that we've ever done.

We wanted to say thank you to everyone who made it along. Photos from the party can be viewed on our website, click here.

Say hello to Hugh. He’s going to be managing our monthly events throughout 2008. He’s bright, friendly, and cuts a fine figure in a suit.

More than that, if you ask him nicely, he may even bake you a cake! On behalf of all of us Hugh, welcome to the team!



For our next theatre outing we’re off to see Chicago!

Village Drinks members will have their own private room to mingle and meet, and after the show there will be an exclusive chance to meet the cast.

Tickets are limited, so if you’d like to come, click here now and reserve your place.

Yes, it's true. 2008 will see a welcome return of our female-only event in London, to coincide with International Women's Day in March.

The venue will be announced shortly, but if you are a female member please drop us a line with feedback on the sort of event you would like. We will mould it around you. So to speak...


We've made a few changes to the way we run our Brighton event. These events will now happen on a Thursday evening, and all guests will be catered for with a light buffet. The next event will be at Koba members bar on 31st Jan. Click here to view full details and put yourself on the guestlist.


We're kicking off the New Year at one of the most popular Village Drinks venues ever.

For our January 'Welcome Back Bash' even we're off to the Langley – a hidden classic – in the heart of Covent Garden.

The date is set… Thursday 31 January! Free wine will be served on arrival. Don’t miss this one, I’ll be a blast. If you’d like to come, please make sure your name is on the guest list by clicking here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
