Great events without alcohol. We say that they're 'Sober Socials for EVERYONE!'. We do day events with yoga and we do evening events with various forms of entertainment. Sometimes we have comedy or a band or DJs (and sometimes we do all of those things on one night!). WONDER is intended to appeal a broad mix of people - if you're not into yoga come and try an evening event. We've seen a real mix of people come to our events - as young as 17 and as wise as 74. The main thing everyone has in common is that they want to have a good time without alcohol. That's what we deliver! Read more about who we are and why we're doing this on our WONDER Why page
What is WONDER?
Did you know the word 'companion' comes from latin and is about sharing bread. Sharing food together is a great way to connect with people. You'll release oxytocin when you enjoy food with other people and you'll get a hit of dopamine when you try a new food you love. When we include food in the price it's because we want to achieve that shared experience. When WONDER events have food it's always vegan. We promise, even if you're not vegan you'll love what we dish up. And look out for Suzie's speciality energy balls.
WONDER events are alcohol-free but our SoBars are not simply serving cola or cordial! We get really creative with our intriguing drinks menus.
We know that when you laugh hard you release all four of the natural happy neurochemicals - dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphins. When we include comedy at our events we work with Cambridge Improv Factory - their 'Whose line is it anyway?' style improvised comedy is just perfect for anyone looking for a good laugh.
WONDER organisers Suzie & Lisa are big fans of yoga. It is a great way to achieve balance with mind and body. We know that after a yoga class we feel lighter and more content so whenever WONDER hosts an event with daytime activities we integrate yoga and sometimes gong baths into the mix. We work with a number of yoga teachers from Satyam Yoga & Wellbeing Centre which has supported WONDER right from the beginning.
Resident DJs are Luna Love and Paul Darking and guest DJs are always welcome. When we have a WONDER disco our DJs whip dancers up into a frenzy by serving up their unique mix of club classics, disco, house, funk & soul.
