Frequently Asked Questions


We meet every Thursday evening, usually at The Hove Club 28 Fourth Avenue, Hove, East Sussex, BN3 2PJ. There are normally 2 dinner meetings in the month, on the 2nd and 4th Thursday, from 7.00 – 9.30, when we have speakers from all walks of life who inspire and entertain us, and we also occasionally arrange social events at other venues around the City.  The remaining Thursdays are Club Committee and Club and Rotary Business meetings over zoom. 

Government Restrictions

We want to keep our members safe and so we make sure our meetings are inline with Government Restrictions and Rotary Best Practice. We always have a Risk Assessment for any Rotary event.  If you would like to attend one of the speaker meetings please contact membership@hove-soiree.co.uk. We are delighted that in the past few months we have recruited several new members. The Club continues to grow and flourish and in spite of all the restrictions, we have been have still be able to raise funds for our charitable activities.
