I am not sure who made me laugh more, the comedians or the banter between the group. Either way my sides hurt. Good Times.

The aim at Porta is to keep things really simple. A relaxed, totally informal environment inspired by the tiniest independent tapas bars of Barcelona and Madrid. Lots of bar stools and casual tables create a busy, buzzing atmosphere.Sharing Tapas just added to the experience.

Rewind Festival weekend is not just about who is performing on the main stage. More exciting entertainment includes Disco Inferno which opens up every day at each of the festivals, Silent Disco, funfair rides, kid- zone with entertainment for the little Rewinders, shops & stalls for jewellery, t-shirts, food & drink.

Welcome to Social Circle's book club. Well it's more just a chit chat but we give it a book club feel. A book club is like group therapy without the depressing stories.

What our members said:
I was looking for a way to get back into reading and then Steve started the Social Circle Book Club. Now it’s like homework that I'm happy to do because I love discussing our books so much!!
Social Circle's Book Club is more than just a book club, it's like a discussion group / therapy with a bookish twist. A great way to connect, share, and expand our reading horizons.

Chester is the oldest racecourse still in operation in the world. The racecourse has consistently been awarded the Gold Standard Award. Sun, Pimms, and of course the olives and strawberries. We went into the open paddock as Steve drove, so it was deck chairs and picnic blankets.
Scott came away £80 up. What's not to love?

What our members said:
Our day at Chester Races was pure delight. Sun, drinks, and the adrenaline of potential winnings (didn’t end up happening for me LOL). Absolutely fab day.
Great group of people doing great things! Never felt confident of going Chester races on my own so I’m thankful that I got to go with Social Circle.

Steve drove from Manchester where we experienced Walking in the footsteps of your Neolithic ancestors at Stonehenge – one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. We were there for sunset and the infamous summer solstice. Memorable bits: people watching, absorbing the atmosphere. It is one of the very few times in the year that you are allowed to go right up to the stones. They felt solid.
One ticked off the bucket list - we'll do it again next year if anyone is up for it - definitely a unique experience.
With Steve driving it was like having our very own chauffeur, definitely one for 2024.

What our members said:
Stonehenge was on my bucket list, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to experience it. Steve's arrangements made it so hassle-free, so I could focus on enjoying the journey and truly magical atmosphere. Definitely a must-do with the social circle gang!
