How to informally address a mixed gender group of people in the UK? Any alternative to 'guys' in 'would you guys like to do this and that?'

    folks is a gender-neutral term.

  • 'Would you all...'. School books say that 'Would you ...' suffices for plural naming, but it does sound a little weak, and calls for emphasis.

  • You might include yourself and then say, "Let's decide whether we want to do this or that."

  • @Barmar - One needs to be a little careful with "y'all", since it can come off sounding condescending if overdone. Better to say "you all", just let the two words slide together a bit.
