Meet your host

Hi, I'm Steve, founder of Social Circle.

I moved from Scotland to Manchester in 2009, and like many people who relocate, I was looking to build a new network of friends. To help others in a similar boat do the same, I set up the very first Social Circle event.

Fast forward 13 years, and Social Circle has gone from strength to strength. We have a fantastic mix of people who have been with us since the start and new members joining every month. We've bar crawled, kayaked, holidayed, taken trips to the cinema, and much, much more. If you have any questions, visit our FAQ page or feel free to contact me directly.
