CEDu3a Social Events Survey 2023

Alongside the many group activities and the Monthly talks, we aim to offer additional social events at low cost throughout the year. The Social Events Team has been successful in organising events such as Quizzes, Dance Evenings and Summer Parties and now wishes to expand the range on offer to meet the needs and interests of the membership. With this in mind it decided to carry out a survey to identify members’ priorities and this was carried out at the larger members’ events in the summer 2023 which included a monthly talk and the two summer parties

With 130 Members completing the survey we have a significant representation of members’ views and wishes for future larger social events with the results set out in relevant sections as follows:

Section 1 : Members’ interest in continuing with current social events

❑ Continuing Quizzes : Yes – 69%
❑ Continuing Ceilidh/Barn Dance evenings Yes – 58%
❑ Continuing Summer Parties Yes – 93%

Section 2 : Members’ interest in attending any other suggested events

❑ Other dance styles Yes – 39%
❑ Jazz evenings Yes– 64%
❑ Live classical recitals Yes – 69%
❑ Whist Drives Yes – 8%
❑ Other Board and Card Games Yes – 15%
❑ Additional Seasonal Parties Yes – 51%
❑ Supper Club Yes – 41%

Section 3 : Members’ suggestions for any other Social Events they’d like to see on offer

Over 40 other types of events were suggested in this section that have all been noted for our attention ranging from more walking activities, Big Screen Singalongs and more live music


We are very grateful for all the responses to this Survey and have already reacted to the results by organising our first live classical music recital planned to take place in November 2023. A Jazz evening will be planned for the New Year. Details for other events will appear on this page
