Talk to Strangers

About a year ago, your author decided that it would be nice to gather together people in London who wanted to talk to people they didn't know, based simply on the premise that conversations with different people are a social good, and should happen more often. Talking to Strangers was born, and first met in May 2011, at the Royal Festival Hall.

Eleven months later, it is still going strong and those who take part report that they are enjoying it. The next meeting is tonight, and bringing together a room of people who all want to have conversations with new people is an interesting thing, and removing the barriers which usually prevent the shy amongst us from sparking up a chat with someone new is great fun. For all those who want to try it, the event takes place tonight at the Devereux near Temple Tube, and costs £3.

  1. I am not a people person, but I do love conversation. This is a great idea.

  2. Agree, with Doug. If there were more people with your mentality the world would be a better place.
