Social Circle Theatre

Welcome to Manchester's Premium Social and Activity Network

A night at the theatre can be an occasion to behold. And it's certainly intended to be an experience to share. Whether you enjoy serious drama, such as Shakespeare, or a musical such as Mamma Mia, there are new friends here at Social Circle here for you to match your tastes and interests. It's a great way to meet people with mutual interests, whether that be culture, comedy, or any other genre you can think of. There will be a chance to get to know each other over a drink during the interval, and at many more Social Circle events.

Beauty and the Beast

I saw Beauty and the Beast at the Palace Theatre with Social Circle and my God, it was amazing. The visuals were stunning and when they played the song, I have to admit to getting a bit emotional. The others may have been laughing at me but, having said that, we all got along famously after the show. :) I'm definitely looking forward to more nights like this.

Annie Get Your Gun

I saw Annie Get Your Gun with Social Circe, admittedly as I used to be a big Neighbours fan, so I largely went for nostalgia's sake. But I wasn't expecting to enjoy the show itself as much as I did. In fact, we all enjoyed it. We took in a drink after the show and promised to meet up at future events, which we did. I've become close friends with two of them, which can't be bad.

Theatre Trip

I went to see The Witches of Eastwick with Marti Pellow and had a blast. I'm a huge fan of the movie and wasn't sure what to expect but the cast put on a great show and it was just hilarious. I enjoyed a drink during the break where I got to chat properly with the other guys from Social Circle and I can't wait to see them out and about again.


Types Of Event

Indoor theatre

We are lucky to have some fantastic theatres right here in Manchester, with the Palace Theatre and Opera House leading the way. There are also some fantastic shows frequently featuring in the lineup for the Lowry and other local theatres, which we regularly take advantage of.

Performance nights

Some of the best shows are those that we get to be a part of, such as the Fawlty Towers Dining Experience (we got to eat the meal eventually) or a murder mystery evening. These nights can be great fun!

Outdoor theatre

Performances in the park on a Summer's day are a spectacle to behold, watching Shakespeare while enjoying picnic style food with new friends. Every single member who has attended outdoor theatre has given us excellent feedback.
