As a member, you can set up your own event!
If you are interested in Cine-Live, Mamu Standup (yes, that is what they call themselves!), Helsinki University Think Corner or Theatre or… anything interesting in English – do invite Finnbrit friends to come along!

How does it work?
Propose an event…+–

To make it simple, each person will buy their own tickets (if applicable) and you, as the Leader of the Event, should wait for everyone at the ticket booth. After having met everyone, all of you can go to the Event as a group, and agree where to meet during the interval / break for a chat, and if you would like, meet also after the event.
Do save your receipt for your ticket to the event, bring it to the office, and we will reimburse you up to EUR 30.
As the events will be posted on the Finnbrit website just before the events take place, do keep a look and join in the fun!
