What is My Friend Charlie?
My Friend Charlie is an offline dating events company based in London, offering unique activities at great local venues for sociable singles.
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 does it work if I find someone I like at an event?
If you feel like you have a connection with someone we encourage our guests to exchange contact details on the night, however we understand that it’s not always that easy, which is why we’re here to help. After an event you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know who you would like to get in contact with. We’ll reach out to them to find out if the feeling’s mutual, and, if it is, we’ll give you each other’s details.
How do I book an event?
To book an event with us, sign up on our website by filling in a few basic details, and choose from Free or Premium membership. You will then be able to select an event you like the look of and buy a ticket.
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.
How many people attend the events?
On average, between 18 and 22 people attend each of our events. We’ve found that this number provides the best environment for everyone to socialise and speak to each other.
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.
Can I buy tickets at the event?
No, but we sell tickets via our website right up until the evening of the event.
How much is membership?
Our basic membership is free, and premium membership is £15 per month.
What do I get as a Premium member?
Our Premium members benefit from free weekly access to our singles Fitness Bootcamp, early-bird access to tickets, and exclusive discounts and regular competitions with our partners.
How much is an event ticket?
It depends on the event, but prices range from £20-60 per ticket. We often have special deals for multiple ticket purchases if you want to bring a friend.
What are the events?
We hold a wide range of events, from gin tasting to axe throwing and everything in between!
We’re always on the lookout for exciting new activities for our members too!
What do I do if I can’t attend an event I’ve booked?
We ask for 72 hours notice with cancellations to allow us to find a replacement guest, at which point we are happy to refund your full ticket costs. We are unable to refund ticket costs for cancellations that occur less than 72 hours before the event.
How do you store 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.
Will you be holding events for the LQBTQ+ community?
Yes, this is something we’re hoping to do in the not-too-distant future.
Why can’t I see any members profiles online?
We don’t put any members’ profiles up online. You’ll only meet people at events.
I want to go to an event that is outside of my age range, can I still attend?
Yes, within reason. If you fall just outside of the age range for an event we are happy for you to come along, but it may be worth dropping us an email at email@example.com first to check.
How should I dress for an MFC event?
It depends on the activity, but in our event info we will always 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!
Is there a minimum contract length for Premium membership?
No, Premium membership can be cancelled at any time, with no minimum contract length.
