You probably already do this when you see an Event on your FB feed and click that you are ‘going’ or ‘interested’, you may not realise that you can also search this information on Facebook.
On your normal page, go to Events – down on the left. This will show you events you have already expressed an interest in, and will also look for events in your local area. You can then look in other areas, for specific types by clicking on the various options. Obviously this only shows activities that people have added to Facebook – but it’s worth a look as it’s a free resource for smaller organisations and charities to use so is usually full of local frugal fun.
This will also show you events that your friends are going along to, so if you find it all a bit much or need some adult company you can arrange to meet people in these neutral locations x
