What we're about

Welcome to the group! 
I created this group because I love Meetup, but thought the kind of nights involving activities beyond drinking were missing. There are so many amazing fun activities and cool spots in Manchester. Most of them have bars too, but if the activity is the focus, drinking is optional.

I'm hoping this group will be a great way to learn more about our wonderful city, as well as try new activities in an open and relaxed environment. 
Since being established in October 2019, we have attracted diverse and open attendees of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances.  What connects us is our social nature, our love of activities and games and our desire to try new things in Manchester! New members are ALWAYS welcome and will always be made to feel comfortable and involved.

If you are looking to join a diverse group of open and friendly members and build your friendship group in Manchester, then this is the group for you!
Please note: We estimate that most events will cost members around £10-20. We will always state the cost on the event and encourage members to pay directly at the event or online in advance. This group is not for profit, but costs me roughly £20 a month to run with Meetup fees. :)

More than just drinks... Cricket @ Sixes!

Needs a location


Hi More Thans!

I've just confirmed a booking of SIXES, a venue in The Corn Exchange that has indoor cricket batting nets and bowling simulators!! How cool!!!


I have booked 2 batting nets 2 hours from 8:00pm, but will be starting with drinks at their bar area from 7:30pm.

After this, we can continue the party, and who knows, you may see us on the dance floor at 2am again haha

Should be loads of fun!

New and returning members are equally welcome, our group is for everyone and is a lovely positive and open-minded group 😁

Can't wait to see you!


Here's what the venue has to say:
Sixes Social Cricket invites everyone to test their batting skills against our best-in-class technology. Scores are recorded on the global leaderboard in a relaxed, social setting. BBQ-Inspired food and delicious cocktails are on hand to supplement your experience!

From signature to all the classics, we serve one-of-a-kind, specially curated and expertly mixed drinks!

All bookings come with an adjoining table to enjoy food & drinks whilst playing - feel free to book an additional table pre or post booking to further enhance your Sixes experience!


Event Prices:
£15 per person

The final amount needs to be cleared before our booking. So please try and pay promptly!


Event Logistics:
Please arrive at the venue at 7:30pm for some pre-drinks. The actual batting will start at 8:00pm.

Note, the price is the same per person no matter how many there are of us in total.

Sixes is based in the Corn Exchange, once I am there I will text the group to let you know where I am :)


What to bring/wear:
You don't need to wear anything special, dress like you would for any night out!


Final Notes:
And just because I get asked this a lot, my events are not alcohol-free... they are just "more than" drinks, not "no" drinks haha So... get the cocktails in*!! 😉

*non-drinkers clearly welcome too 😉😂
