No set agenda, just an opportunity to meet new friends at various events such as walking, cycling, restaurant/pub meals, live bands, cinema outings, weekends away, holidays abroad, pub/club nights and much more. Make new friends, have a laugh and have some serious fun with great company.

Open to anyone 18+ who would like to widen their social circle.


Although many events are centred around Newcastle-Gateshead, many events are held outside this metropolis. Members from the surrounding Cities of Sunderland and Durham are also most welcome!

Feel free to put forward suggestions and ideas for events. We look forward to meeting you.

Membership - £10.00 per  year - Membership dues are paid on joining

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
