- How can I contact you?
- I live outside Greater Manchester, is it for me?
Many who attend our events come from all over Greater Manchester but also from surrounding areas such as Knutsford, Stockport, Altrincham and Warrington and we provide a range of regular events across Cheshire areas as well as Manchester.
- If I arrive on my own, would I be the only one?
The purpose of Social Circle is to bring together like-minded individuals and almost everyone arrives on their own to meet new people just like you; we are a really friendly, fun bunch of folk!
- I am a bit nervous, will someone meet me before the event?
Your host will personally welcome you to ease any nerves and text you on the day of the event in case you require directions or you are running late. If you wish to meet them before the event, simply reply to the text message sent to you that confirms your event and let them know.
- I am unsure as to whether I fit into the right age bracket or not?
Generally our age range is from early 20s to late 40s although we have no restriction in upper age level. Anyone from 18-80 is welcome. If you are young at heart, you will fit right in
- Do I have to pay or is this a community group?
We're a fully-fledged 7 day a week business and as such, incur costs e.g. staff. You just need to take a look at our busy calendar to see to see the huge range of events we have on offer. Organising these events is very much a full-time business.
- Do I need to become a member?
Social Circle is membership-only, with the sole exceptions being newbies nights, as well as weekends away and holidays, where we recognise that some people may not have the time to indulge in the wide range of other activities we have available. Membership alleviates much of the administrative activities associated with a pay as you go system and thus allows us to offer over 100 free events a month to our members - this really is unbeatable value.
- May I try an event first?
You simply need to click on the 'free event' link here http://www.social-circle.co.uk/free-event.asp as long as you haven't previously attended a free event, you will be entitled to a free event so you may find out for yourself whether it is for you or not.
- What is the best event to start with?
The best event is the Newbies Night, held every month. We have a number of relaxed social events which are also a great way to start, such as Friday Night Drinks or a midweek meal and even comedy nights. You will come to find out what kind of people attend and to pose questions to the host about any other events you may be interested in and about Social Circle in general.
- Who are your members?
They tend to be busy professionals who wish to expand their social circle. They come from all over Manchester and surrounding areas and from all walks of life, with one common goal; to meet new people and have a good time.
- Why do people attend Social Circle?
Main reasons include:
- You are new to the area
- Your friends being coupled up or married off
- You are busy and don't have time to meet people
- You already have an extensive social network but love meeting new people.
- I have registered as a member but can't log in?
No problem. Drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will instruct you on what to do.
- I have forgotten my password?
There is a forgotten password link on all areas of the site where you are prompted to login. Simply fill in the requested information and your password will be sent to the email address that you registered with.
- How do I book on to an event?
We have made it as simple as we possibly could. Should you need help simply email us at email@example.com for more information or to confirm a booking for an event.
- How will I find you at the venue?
The host will text you on the day of the event to arrange a meeting place. You will then, of course, be provided with their phone no. So if there are any problems, you can simply get in touch.
- I forgot to ask a fellow guest for their contact details; will you provide them to me?
Due to the Data Protection Act, we are not allowed to divulge any information given to us by either our guests or members.
