Presented by Girl Gang Manchester

Ever wished there was a tinder for friends? Feeling a bit lonely in the big city? Not anymore you're not!

Taking inspiration from dating shows, bad business meetings, teenage sleepovers, art attack and agony aunts, Girl Gang invite you to undertake creative challenges and respond to conversational topics, creating authentic connections between new friends, quickly and fear-free!

Rebelling against the pressures of career-based scenarios in which we are told to push through situations that make us feel uncomfortable in order to achieve, we regularly run a speed session so silly and inclusive that you’ll step outside of usual comfort zone without even realising.​

Approximately 75% of all attendees arrive alone, so if you are worried you will be the only one – rest assured you definitely won’t be!

This event welcomes people of all genders and is open to anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ or questioning.

Please note, there are two Speed Mate-ing sessions available to book; learn more below.
