What we're about

I know there are a few different MeetUp groups for social type things in Manchester - with this I'm trying to cover bases with one that provides a mix, particular linking into some of the different events In the Manchester calendar and trying new ventures - ideal for those, like me, new to the area or looking to try new things or new places.

Also it can act as a 'meeting place' for people wanting to pick up things in a new place but don't really know where to go or looking for a buddy to pick things up with.

I'm relatively new to Manchester so looking to get ideas for places to go, things to do and share these with others so we can all make the most of living around here

So ideas include
Junkyard mini golf at Great Northern
Regular film nights
Red Bank Quiz Night
Catching an exhibition at HOME or one of the galleries
Random coffee and drinks - trying quirky places or new places
Learning a language - I'd like to pick up Spanish/British Sign Language
Learning a musical instrument
Sport watching and playing
Buddies for charity events and Fifa

Any ideas to add welcome and let me know what you'd want to do :)

Night Out in Tusk in Northern Quarter πŸ˜€πŸŽΆπŸΈπŸΉπŸΊ

Hi guys, I have arranged for us to have the whole venue of Tusk, which is next to Walrus in the Northern Quarter.

Free Ping Pong & Social πŸ“πŸ“πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ

Twenty Twenty Two. (Ping Pong Pub)

Hi Guys, After a long break from hosting at the Ping Pong place, I am happy to announce, I am starting the events back up and running there again. Now the place does get very busy, so it will be a case of first come first served to grab a bat, ball and a table. There will be a wait for a table as well, but we can all grab a drink and have a chat. You can also bring your own bat if you have one, or buy one if you want to come regularly. Either way, it will be a fun evening! Look forward to meeting you all. Vicki x
