There are many reasons why furs attend furmeets. Some are most interested in the fursuit walk, others prioritise playing table top games, while others again may just want to chill and socialise with friends. Many want a combination of all of these things and more.
The Fandom is an incredibly diverse place and meets need to reflect this. This is why we scout for feedback regularly and encourage people to contribute to the local meets if there is anything they would like to see. This has seen us conduct monthly quizzes, run prize draws and set up an Artists’ Alley, which allows artists a space to draw and showcase their work.
There are a number of meets across the country and we do try and keep the Leeds ones distinct. This is why we work with the bar to offer things like furry-themed cocktails and shots, as well as special offers on some of the drink and food. We also try and avoid going to venues that are similar to our friends in other cities so furs have a choice of different furmeet experiences across the UK.
We are also aware that there is a danger that the furmeets can become a little repetitive month after month, which is why on occasion we adopt special themes, such as our 100th birthday celebrations back in January. The variation of the fursuit walk route is another way of shaking the meets up a bit.
Ultimately, we aim to run a furmeet that everyone in our local community enjoys, one they recommend to their friends and one they keep coming back to. We are always happy to hear suggestions for new aspects of the meet as well as constructive feedback on how things could be done better. Remember, these are your meets and we want to deliver the best experience we can every third Saturday afternoon.
Thanks for attending, we do it for you.Back to all News and Reports
