Produced in partnership with Funzing.
Funzing unveils unique, local London events — with a dynamic collection of Londoners waiting to share their passions and hobbies with you.
The website is packed with endless events you can join in with: supper clubs, tours, workshops, classes, lectures and more. Yep, Londoners certainly have talent.
If you're looking for something new to do, download the app (currently on Android only) and be flooded with ideas from hundreds of hosts.
Here are five reasons you should give the Funzing app a try:
1. Find cool stuff around you, easily
Glass fusing, beekeeping, trampolining and murder mystery tours — just like the Funzing website, this app is clear and intuitive. Events are listed with pictures of the host (so you can see who you'll be meeting), a description and pictures of the activity, plus the price and date. Events are listed in date order, for simple scrolling.
2. Plan your week ahead
With so many things to do, it's great to be able to plan your week in advance. If you find an event you like the look of, with one click you can share it with anyone in your smartphone using Whatsapp, Hangouts and Facebook Messenger. You can also invite your friends to use the Funzing app with just a click — then it's even easier to look at events you can do together.
3. Host your own event
Let's be honest — everyone needs some money when it's time for a holiday or buy that thing you've always wanted, so turn your hobby into cash and become a Funzing host. You can do this via the app too. Just head to the main menu and click 'Sign Up'. Registering as a host is completely free and a great chance to share your enthusiasm for an activity with others, while making some cash.
4. Meet new people
With a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, it's easier to talk to people you don't know and make new friends. That's a major side of Funzing events — aside from experiencing something new, you can get chatting and sharing the experience as a group. Whether you join the event by yourself or with friends, you'll feel part of the community straight away.
5. Get to know your host before the event
As well as a picture for every host, the Funzing app also shows ratings for the host and event. At a glance, you can see how many people have awarded a thumbs up for your host and their event. There's also a place for comments, so you can read all the great feedback your host has received and discover more about the exciting event you've chosen to book.
