Do you want to get active in Manchester?

We have a diverse range of active things to do in Manchester to ensure that the more restless among you always have something to look forward to beyond what your friends enjoy.

If you’re looking to be active in Manchester, Social Circle is here to help you experience some of the best group activities around. Whether it’s an indoor skiing session at Chill Factore to sharpen up your skills or challenging your grip with rock climbing at Manchester Climbing Centre, there isn’t much that we aren’t willing to try. We even have the odd ping pong tournament. So the next time you’re looking for some fun Manchester activities, explore our Manchester events calendar; there’s bound to be something for you.

Looking for new friends in Manchester?

When your circle of friends aren’t looking to be as active as you, what do you do? The No. 1 Manchester social group introduces you to like-minded people on activities.

How about group trips?

Of course, active means different things to different people. It may be that you just want to get your boots muddy with a walking weekend or are you seeking something more extreme? If so, we’ll take you across the UK to try abseiling in Wales and caving in the Yorkshire Dales with our fun-loving group of Manchester singles and couples.

And we even have the occasional trip abroad such as a walking in Poland or a skiing holiday in Bulgaria (with the essential apres ski!).

So how does it work?

We know it’s a little unusual to turn up at an event knowing no one, so we don’t expect you to. Instead, we introduce you to the founders and then to the event host, who will make sure you’re feeling excited and not too nervous.

Whether it’s that you're looking for more things to do in Manchester or it's a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered!

New Friends In Manchester

The friends I've known for years have always been up for a night out on the town on a weekend but when it came to anything more active, I had no-one in my group of friends to join me. Since I joined Social Circle, I've enjoyed numerous activities and as most of my friends had moved away, it was great to meet some new friends in Manchester in the process.

Renewed Sense Of Energy

I used to be really active but had become lazy in recent years. Social Circle has really shaken me up and was just the right thing at the right time. Not only are my weekends so much more fun but I have a renewed sense of energy throughout the week. My life has definitely changed for the better. Thanks Social Circle!

Go Ape and Abseiling

I love exploring my more active side and Social Circle enables me to do just that. Since joining, I've attended such events as Go Ape and abseiling and have had such an amazing time. The best thing about it though is having fun with the people I have met here. It turns out that there are other activity nuts like me after all :)


Types Of Event


Our cycle rides, usually from Didsbury, are a great way to get fit and see some stunning sights along the way. Have fun while burning off those calories from the weekend :)

Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing
Rock climbing has been on our events calendar for years. It remains a popular activity for those who want the practice for outdoor climbing, enjoy getting fit, or simply love climbing.

Indoor Skydiving

Indoor Skydiving
Continuing the theme of traditionally outdoors activities indoors, indoor skydiving is a seriously fun activity. Flying around indoors is an adventure, indeed.
