Manchester Social Party of the Year at The Milton Club

manchester events milton club party
Our mingles are consistently among our most attended events and every time we plan a new one, we think of ways to make it better than the last. Well, this time we feel that we’ve added more spice than ever before with the venue being the VIP room of the ultra-exclusive Milton Club.

If you’re a member of Social Circle, this is exactly why you joined. If you want to meet new people, this is the perfect platform in which to do that. If you’re not and you want to find out what we’re all about, then now is the time to either join or come along as this is one of the few events we allow non-members to attend (just to prove we’re not really bias to non-members).

So come along, ready to be social and meet some fantastic and like-minded new people in a venue so cool, even the Fonz couldn’t get in. You will have no choice but to widen your social circle and experience the kind of Manchester socialising your most socially connected friends could dream of.

We expect many of you to turn up and socialise but, of course, every venue has its limits so secure your place now on the Manchester socialising party of the year.

Don’t be broing- enjoy some Manchester socialising instead

manchester socialisingLife can be pretty dull sometimes and we find we get ourselves into a routine where we seemingly do nothing other than go to work and then…well, that it. It can get so bad that our friends label us as boring (even if we see ourselves as the exact opposite). The fact is that unless you’re out there meeting new people and trying new things, life can indeed be somewhat dull. But that doesn’t mean that YOU are boring…it simply means you have allowed your life to slip into a routine.

So how do you change your routine? Well, we offer opportunities for you to transform your social life and inject some fun into your calendar. You could really step out of your comfort zone and join us on some of our adventure weekends but then often life is simply about meeting new people…enjoying the most simple things with like-minded individuals.

Joining Social Circle on a night out may not seem like a life-transforming event and it may not be. But once you start talking to people, you will find that there are many others who have let life dictate to them very much the same way as it may have done the same to you. And the only person who can change that is you. So how about taking control of your life. Take a stand and transform your social life today with the kind of Manchester socialising that can really put some zest back into your life.

If you’ve no plans this weekend…

manchester social groupIf you haven’t anything in your social calendar this weekend, it may be time to take stock of life and ask yourself if you’re really making the most of it.

If you take a look at our exciting line-up of events, you will see no end of activities, whether social, walking, or something a little bit different. So why would you waste your weekend in front of the box when you could be meeting some fantastic new people at your favourite bar or restaurant or on activities such as a walk or salsa class.

You are not making a lifelong obligation, you are just trying us out and it is up to us to prove to you that you have made the right decision. We know it may not be easy for you  to come along to your first event as nerves can kick in but those very same nerves may just be keeping you at home at the weekend so it truly is time to take the plunge. All of our hosts are experienced in helping you settle in and every one of our members has been in exactly the same boat as you at one point in time. But because they took that first step of coming along and trying us out, many friendships have been formed in the process. So if you feel you need to take baby steps, that’s fine…just try our the no.1 Manchester social group and we will be gentle with you. We promise! :)

Will you join us for some free Manchester socialising?

manchester socialisingIt’s Friday and the weekend is upon us so we just wanted to remind those of you who have never tried Social Circle to take us up on a free event. You can join us for drinks, a pub crawl or any other kind of social event. Of course, if you’re more active, you could always go on a walk (whether a weekend walk in the Peaks or a cultural walk around this great city we call Manchester). We also have numerous activity-based events such as fitness classes, indoor climbing, salsa and ten pin bowling.

If you have ever wondered what we are really all about (and by that, I mean get a feel of what it’s like to be at an event), then this is the perfect opportunity. Not everyone likes to sign up to something they are unsure about and let’s face it, there aren’t too many like-for-like examples when it comes to Social Circle. That’s why we felt that it’s only fair to let you sample us first. Simply go to this link and let is know that you would like to. Then get ready for some serious Manchester socialising.



Enjoy some underground Manchester activities this Sunday

manchester activity
If you feel like you need a new challenger, you’re in luck. Challenge Xtreme have something more than enough to quench thirst your adventurous thirst.

We are confident that this is the kind of adventure you had in mine (sorry, I meant mind – honest). We will start at Conway Falls Cafe where we will get kitted up with Wellington boots, a lamp, helmet and harness before setting on a Land Rover to what is among the world’s most abandoned and largest slate mines.

It doesn’t matter if this is your first time as you won’t need to have any experience with climbing or caving. You won’t be forced to make your way through tight spaces either and you are likely to get too wet. You will be put to the test, however, as it will call upon your physical fitness and mental toughness. You will also need to be okay with heights and be reasonably fit and agile.

Not your most typical of Manchester activities (and, to be fair, this is in Conwy) but certainly one of our more exciting events on the calendar this month. So don’t hide your head under your duvet after a night of mild debauchery. Drag yourself out and come and join us for some underground adventure. You will be proud of yourself and will be free to give yourself a pat on the back at the end.

Manchester book club accepting new members

manchester book clubIf you have a penchant for reading when you’re all settled in for the evening but you feel
like you wouldn’t mind getting to know some new people at the same time, give our Manchester book club a try.

Every month we take on a new title and discuss it in depth before deciding on the following month’s choice. Of course, that doesn’t mean that much of the conversation won’t take more of a general social stance so, of course, you will also be able to get to know some fab new people.

This month, the book of choice will be ‘The Husband’s Secret’ by Liane Moriarty. If you haven’t read it, it may be a little late in the day to get caught up but you can find out more about it here.

The venue is The Metropolitan which is the most popular venue in West Didsbury for a reason. It’s made for a social evening so hopefully you will join us for a drink or two after we have got all the intellectual stuff covered :)

You don’t have to be a member of our Manchester book club to come along so feel free to drop in and out as you see fit. You need to let us know that you’re coming, of course, so put your name down here and we’ll see you there :)

Manchester Restaurants with some fantastic offers!

manchester restaurantsAnd here is one which we will be taking advantage of tomorrow night with Social Circle: 

Weekday Evening Special – 3 Courses NOW ONLY £15 (Was £25)

The menu includes options from every single Japanese region. Going back to the early 90s, Japanese food wasn’t easy to come by and when it could be found, it remained uneasy to obtain due to the price tag. Samsi had a plan to make it’s dishes authentic but also wanted it to be fit for the taste buds of your average Brit. Sushi aficionados initially scoffed at smoked salmon sushi but they did originally serve them close to 20 years ago. The venue does cater well for sushu gurus, however, although that is only a small portion (excuse the pun) of the menu.

Thanks to the Japanese yen weak ingredients brought to this country as well as the more attractive price tag of imported ingredients, Samsi prices have remained the same for the two decades that it has been with us, which makes the overall experience, fantastic value. When you throw the three course offer into the mix, it makes the venue even harder to resist.

So come and join us exploring some of the best Manchester restaurants around, this month landing in Japan for an amazing offer. With three courses, you will likely have your appetite filled and with the fantastic new people you will meet, your thirst for socialising should be well and truly quenched as well.

Manchester bars going green for St. Patrick’s Day

st paddys daySt Patrick’s Day is an event that is celebrated across not just in Ireland and the United Kingdom but in numerous countries throughout the world. Expect the pubs and bars to be adorned in green with traditional Irish beverages and lots of fun entertainment.

In case you didn’t now, Saint Patrick was, according to Wikipedia:
“a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the “Apostle of Ireland”, he is the primary patron saint of the island along with Saints Brigit and Columba.”

But, don’t worry, most people celebrating tomorrow night won’t know that either :)

From last Monday, The Bierkeller in The Printworks have been celebrating the occasion. They have featured their resident Oompah band and band Giant Causeway performing every afternoon.

But, of course, tomorrow is the big day and so the celebrations won’t stop until the Monday is over. So come and join in the fun and frivolities in one of the most fun Manchester bars around. Bierkeller are featuring some very tempting drink offers at the moment such as Guinness for £2.50, which I’m sure you will want to take advantage of.

Oh, and don’t forget to wear green :)


Manchester sunday lunch- a relaxing afternoon after weekend socialising

After a late Friday and Saturday evening, we usually like our Sundays to be chilled and manchester sunday lunchrelaxing. And what’s more relaxing than a Sunday lunch?

With roast dinners, we tend to have an ‘ideal’ in our heads of what mama used to make, which can be rough to top.

However, The Living Room comes a close second.

The venue is stunning and just maybe one of the city’s most beautiful, with its vast spaces and vaulted ceilings. It is chic at its best with it’s stunning mirrors and warm tones

And that vibe is just perfect for a Sunday afternoon, laid back and relaxed with a few tunes being performed by the pianist, making the atmosphere even warmer.

Oh, and the food is simply mouth-watering.

The amount of food on your plate for the roast dinner will please the big eaters in the group.

However, what makes The Living Room different than it’s competitors is it’s wonderful staff. manager and waiters are always available to help you and cater (I couldn’t resist) to your every need, which makes the experience even more pleasurable.

Oh, and by the way, the Sunday menu offers an amazing 2 courses for £14.95 or 3 courses for £17.95 so you’ve really no excuse not to come and join us for some serious Manchester socialising at one of Manchester’s most lush venues :)
