    So of all the possible activities that a person could do, you don't like one of them, and want us to list the remainder?

    I'm not remotely interested in clubbing. I would much rather go out for a meal or meet friends for a coffee and a chat, where we can all talk properly without having to shout over music or risk being groped by drunken idiots.

    I wouldn't really consider clubbing socialising, it's just a mass of intoxicated people enjoying loud music and dancing poorly. :p: Try going to the pub, cosy, loud enough that other people can't really hear your conversations but not so loud that you can't hear each other. I've found sports can be a great way to socialise, especially at university.

    I'm assuming you don't just mean a direct alternative for clubbing to do between times of around 12pm-4am ^^

    Café's, bars, games (board and video), films, go on an 'adventure' to a random place, restaurants, museums and the like, learning stuff you are interested in but isn't involved in your formal education (such as another language etc.).

    for something in similar territory but with a completely different atmosphere I'd say pubs and house parties. 100% prefer those.

    firstly cheers for the advice! brilliant youre willing to help

    haha not necessarily p cafes...hmmm okay might give it a go i guess.

    adventure I like very much no car atm though..plus rather hard to drag mates along but I do love it

    museums ah good point.in a small town not as easy.

    ah see learning a language isnt very social in my eyes ..unless I like get someone to teach me..

    hmm not a major fan of pubs either..karaoke and decent bands are good..otherwise its meh..but I guess I cant be too choosy either.

    Alternative? I don't get it. Clubbing caters to people who like dancing to music whilst intoxicated, if this isn't you why are you doing it and why are you assuming its the sole social avenue.

    It all depends on your interests, if your into live music go see live music, if you like comedy go see comedy shows, theatre, reading events, chess club, sports, polo club, walking clubs, networking clubs and so forth. There is a whole world out there.

    its just concerts/comedy shows arent very regular and difficult living in a small town

    there doesnt seem to be much going on at night/evening in small towns outside of cinema/bowling or clubbing
