The Variety Group’s catchment area is centred around the towns of Corby, Desborough, Kettering, Market Harborough, Rothwell, Thrapston, Uppingham and surrounding villages for those over 40 years old, though these aren’t set in stone. The aim is to enable people with similar interests come together and have fun in the process. This is because there’s plenty of people out there that wouldn’t even contemplate or have the confidence to participate in some of these activities on their own. You'll soon be made welcome.
We hope to give you the chance to join in and build new friendships, though we must emphasise that this isn’t a dating site. It doesn’t matter what your background is or what your job you do, it’s the people that count. Likewise we’re not here to be competitive as we want you to enjoy our events and come back again. For this group to work effectively and be beneficial for all, we need everyone to make an effort and join in and have some fun.
All we ask in return from you is to be honest, respectful and be yourself, pay a nominal yearly fee and if you would display a facial photograph of yourself, so members can recognise each other. Please only RSVP for an event if you truly wish to take part. We want this to be an interactive group. So if you’ve not attended a meet up for over three months, we’ll terminate your membership as clearly we’re not what you’re looking for. We're not looking for people who just keep joining countless groups, it's pointless! Similarly, if you can't come to an event that you've RSVP'd please notify us as soon as possible as three no shows will also terminate your membership.
Likewise, any lurkers, harassment or unsavoury behaviour will not be tolerated either.
Please note there's a large waiting list to join this group - we believe small is beautiful.
