What we're about

Don't be shy to join us! We will never be cliquey, most of us will be introverts or shy in some way, and there's no qualifying "amount" of nerdiness. The aim of the group is to be friendly, supportive, share our interests and make lasting friendships.

The original chapter of this meetup was created in San Francisco (Bay Area Nerd Girls), Its founder moved to Amsterdam (where I lived for 3 years) and started a chapter there and it was such an amazing group that I wanted to start one in the UK.

BANG! is a diverse group of girls and members tend to have an interest in any of the following: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Board games, RPGs, Comics, programming, Cosplay, Graphic Novels, Gaming, Video Games, Anime, Manga...

No match up top? How about these?
Baking, Knitting, Sewing, Writing, Karaoke, Crafting, DIY, Makeup, Graphic Design, Web Development, Interior Design, History, Science, Engineering, Technology, Cartoons, Activism, Linguistics, Mental health, Personal development...
Whether you consider yourself a geek, nerd, or dork, it doesn’t matter — every girl is welcome so long as she’s open to meeting all types of friends. If this sounds like you, we’d love to meet you. Must be 18+.

There will be a monthly meet and greet and smaller events based on what members enjoy so speak up if you would like to see something happen or better yet make it happen by hosting a meetup yourself :)

BANG is only open to those who identify as a woman. We are emphatically trans- and queer-friendly. If you have accessibility requirements, just let us know what we can do to make life easier.

If you decide to join us check your welcome email for the link to the group whatsapp chat or ask about it at a meetup.
