Open to anyone 35+ who would like to widen their social circle.

Founded - March 2009.

No set agenda, just an opportunity to make 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. A relaxed meet up for friendly people who are either new to Newcastle or locals who would like to meet people from all walks of life. Life is more fun together.

Ethos of New Friends in Newcastle and Mission Statement  - Bringing people together, making new friends and doing so many fun things with great company. . ''Strangers are friends you haven't met yet''


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 within 7 days of joining.

The £10 covers the daily upkeep and maintenance of the site.
