DEVON SOCIAL GROUP EVENTS
We offer hundreds of events every year, including social events, dining out, parties, balls, themed events, murder mystery, quiz evenings, indoor activities, outdoor activities, walks, days out, weekend breaks, short breaks, and international holidays!
Events mostly take place in the evenings, at weekends during the day, and on weekend evenings. But we sometimes have midweek lunch time events as well. It’s a mixture. What we offer is varied every month and seasonally. At certain times of the year, there’s lots of outdoor activities. At other times, lots of dining out. At other times, lots of parties. We vary what we do throughout the year, keeping what’s on in Devon fresh and interesting!

What’s on next month will be different to what’s on this month. Our aim is to constantly provide something new and interesting to join in with and enjoy!
