What is My Friend Charlie?

My Friend Charlie is an offline dating events company based in London and Bristol, offering unique activities at great local venues for sociable singles.

What kind of events do you hold?

My Friend Charlie only hosts or promotes events that we know will be a great experience for our members, and provide a relaxed and fun environment for them to meet new people. We hold a wide range of events, from gin tasting to axe throwing and everything in between!

We’re always on the lookout for new and exciting activities for our members too. If you have any suggestions please drop us an email at hello@myfriendcharlie.co.uk

What’s it like at an MFC event?

MFC events are designed to feel like you’re on a night out with a bunch of mates, the difference being that you know everyone is open to the possibility of meeting someone. If you don’t meet anyone in that way at one of our events, you’ll still have had a fun night out with great people.

How many people attend the events?

On average, between 15 and 25 people attend our events. 

Will there be an equal number of men and women at your events?

We aim to provide a 50:50 split of men and women at every event we hold, but occasionally this split is 60:40. We won’t run an event unless we sell a minimum 60:40 split of tickets (which can be male:female or female:male).

How should I dress for an MFC event?

It depends on the activity, but in our event info we will specify a dress code if there is one. Generally speaking, smart casual is a wise idea – you’ll want to make a good first impression after all!

Are you present in any other cities?

We’re currently running events in London and Bristol, with Manchester opening in late 2019.

Will you be holding events for the LQBTQ+ community?

Yes, this is something we hope to do in the not-too-distant future.

What happens to my data?

We securely store all of our members data as per the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can read more about it here.

My Friend Charlie Membership

How do I become a member of My Friend Charlie?

Create an account on our website here by filling in a few basic details. 

What types of membership do you offer?

We offer both Free and Premium membership to our guests.

How much is Premium membership and what’s included?

Premium membership is £15 per month. MFC Premium members get a 15% discount off all single tickets, and exclusive discounts and competitions with our partners.

Is there a minimum contract length for Premium membership?

No, Premium membership can be cancelled at any time via your profile page in your account. There is no minimum contract length.

Why do I need a profile as it’s not visible to other members?

Your profile data helps us to show you the best events for you and is never shared with anyone else. The only thing visible to other guests will be your profile photo and first name as part of an event guest list after an event so you can match.

Your My Friend Charlie Account

What do I do if I’ve forgotten my password?

If you can’t remember your password, go to the log in page and press ‘Forgotten password’ to reset it.

Why can’t I see any other members’ profiles online?

We do not put guest profiles online. After an event, if you go into ‘My Events’ you can see a guestlist of everyone who came to the same event as you, so you can like anyone you were interested in and if it’s mutual then it will open a chat.

Booking Info

How do I book an event?

To book an event with us, sign into your account and select an event you like the look of. At the bottom of the screen there will be an “Available Dates” button where you can select the date and book your place.

How much is an event ticket?

It depends on the event, but prices range from £20-60 per ticket. If you are a Premium member you get a 15% discount on single event tickets.

Can I buy tickets at the event?

No, but you can purchase tickets via your MFC account right up until the evening of the event.

What do I do if I can’t attend an event I’ve booked?

You can cancel your place at an event at any time by going into ‘My Events’ in your profile. 

If you cancel your place more than 72 hours before then we will refund you 100% of the ticket cost. For cancellations that are less than 72 hours before the event we cannot offer refunds.

How does it work if I meet someone I like at an event?

After attending an MFC event, if you log in to your account you will be able to see the event guest list. From here, you can match with anyone you were interested in by ticking their name. If the match is mutual, a chat with that person will open up in the ‘Chat’ menu.

How do I unmatch someone I’m no longer interested in?

If you’ve changed your mind and want to unmatch someone, go to the My Events page in your account and untick the box next to the name of the person you want to unmatch. Unmatching someone will also delete your chat with them.
