What we're about

Are you new to Sheffield, lived here your whole life or came here for Uni and never left? Want to get out there, see what the city has to offer, have some great nights out, experience something new, find someone special, make new buddies, got no plans this weekend or just meet a few interesting folks along the way?

We like Arts, Music, Gigs, Movies, Theatre, Markets and Festivals. Food, Craft Beers, Coffee, Strolls around the city, the great outdoors and chip butties 🍟🍔🍻🚶🎶🎭🎪

Explorers has been set up for people at a similar stage in life, looking for similar people and experiences.... but open, inclusive, friendly and welcoming. If you've been to a few events and fancy organising your own events, get in touch. We are free, non-commercial, non-affiliated aim to support local, community organisations and independents, do not respond to requests from anyone looking to profit from meetups and don't take kickbacks.

We also care about you and if you're struggling, having a crappy time, dealing with issues, nervous because you haven't been along before or need special arrangements to suit you needs, everybody wants you to have a great meetup, drop the organiser a message before the event and we'll make sure you're well looked after.

Zero tolerance for wallys, hate, small minds, showoffs 🚫

We take your experience and safety seriously and if you have any concerns or would like to report any issues in confidence please message us directly.
