Social Circle Socialising

Welcome to Manchester's Premium Social and Activity Network
HOME CATEGORIES Socialising

It goes without saying that these are our most popular events. Socialising in Manchester is why you're here and a wide range of events fall into this category. Whether it's drinks nights, pub crawls, meals, comedy, quiz nights, a vast majority of our events are designed to have you meet new people and explore some of the many wonderful things to do in Manchester. We have a host at each and every event ready to meet you and have you mingling in no time at all. So if you enjoy socialising, and we hope you do, these will likely be among your favourite events.

New Venues Fantastic People

I've been living in Manchester for eight years but had no idea there was so much right here on my doorstep. I live in Chorlton and most of my friends only visit the local bars. Since I joined Social Circle, I've been to so many new venues and met so many fantastic people. I'm impressed, to say the least.

Thanks Social Circle

I had become something of a hermit after my divorce so a friend suggested I take a look at Social Circle. I was hesitant at first but eventually I decided to give it a try. I soon got back into the swing of socialising and I can't speak highly enough about the other members. They really made it easy for me to come out of my shell. Thanks Social Circle!

Manchester wine tasting

I love socialising with new people and Social Circle gave me gave me loads of opportunity to do just that. Since joining, I've attended numerous events and have met so many great people that my social life has never been better. Just last week, I went to a pub crawl and a meal and next week am going to two more events in Manchester, wine tasting included. Life is good!

Types Of Event

Drinks

Our drinks nights are pure socialising. No matter what drink you enjoy, or even if you don't drink at all, members mingle like there's no tomorrow on our drinks nights. We visit a mix of old favourites and brand new venues.

Meals

A meal is the perfect way to get to know people. Sitting across from new friends, while choosing from a menu and enjoying a meal without music blaring away in the background, can be refreshing. The ideal occasion for those who enjoy conversation and meeting new people.

Comedy

Everyone loves a good laugh and comedy a fantastic way of breaking the ice on a social night out. From getting to to know one another before the show to discussing the best and worst bits afterwards, comedy is the perfect cure for those who feel a bit apprehensive about attending a social night.
