Lemons with a Twist®

Longevity is a hard thing to come by for women’s nights in the queer scene but Lemons has defied the odds. Since 1999, Lemons with a Twist has provided a safe place for like-minded Lesbians and their friends to connect, make new friendships and meet in a relaxed and fun environment. 

What’s it about?

A long-established, largely social event with canapés and drinks for lesbians, their friends and allies.  6pm – late is a time to be social with friends – catch up over a drink and some canapés.  

Who attends?

Lemons with a Twist is a regular, largely social event, attracting about 200 attendees.  It’s a great opportunity to catch up with friends early in the evening, then a little later, join popular DJs or enjoy live entertainment and party the night away!

For something more business-oriented, but with a social element, join us at Fruits in Suits or Long Table Canapés.
