NOTE: We are gradually introducing more social events but obviously all are subject to government guidelines so be aware that things may change at short notice.

A dedicated group of volunteers at the Forum organise trips and social events ranging from social gatherings in Enfield, and informative London visits, for which a Freedom Pass and curiosity are all that is required, to sociable holidays in Europe and Asia. Our events are a great way to meet people from all walks of life who want to enjoy discovering their own locality, city, continent and world. All our trips and events will be posted on this page.

You must be a member of the Forum to book onto these trips. Join or renew now if you need to.
