    Hi there,

    It means that you don't have to book in advance, or tell anyone that you are planning to attend. You can just turn up/show up/drop in.

    As a phrasal verb, it's "to drop in"
    As an adjective, it's "drop-in"

    We have a drop-in centre for homeless people.
    I want to go to drop-in classes because I don't want to book for a whole year.
