Our inner London venue is The Perseverance 63 Lamb's Conduit Street, London WC1N 3NB. All welcome. Its an independent freehouse in Bloomsbury, close to both Russell Square and Holborn tubes.

Our alternative venue is The Sheephaven Bay (2-3 Mornington Street,Camden, NW1 7QD), a 5 minute walk from Mornington Crescent tube. The 2nd Thursday of the month is the usual date, but we can be flexible to accommodate guest speakers or City's live appearances on TV. PS We outgrew our previous venue, Old Doctor Butler's Head, 2, Masons Avenue, London, EC2V 5BT.

Our social evenings are a lively mix of branch matters, City chit chat, City DVDs and videos, travel arrangements and meeting places for upcoming home and away games, a fun quiz and much more besides. They are a great chance to share and discuss City news. Throw in a few guest speakers and we've got a packed schedule. Previous speakers have included Sophie McGill, Douglas Craig, Chris Jones, Jon Champion, Dean Kiely, David Ward, Steve Beck and Josh Easby.

We're a potent mix of once a year supporters to season ticket holders, Yorkshire diehards to Cockney Reds and media whizz kids to pinstripe international jet setting accountants, Anne Robinson's best mate (not the horse!), various chums of Steve McClaren from his schooldays and government and FO officials. You're bound to fit in somewhere with that lot.

We have a special Christmas meeting in December, darts night in the bleak mid winter and YCFC Quiz in the spring. Warm up starts around 7 o’clock and the more formal bit is usually over by 9:30, but rest assured we put the world (or at least City) to rights until closing time.

There is an open invitation to the manager and his merry men to come along to a meeting, but obviously being a Thursday evening in London makes it difficult for anyone from York to get down and back, like the club, our finances don't stretch to the extravagance of overnight trips if they can be avoided. However, managers since Martin Foyle have invited us into the team hotel on a Friday night before an away game in the south east.

Our socials are so legendary, one even made it onto Sky Sports!
