WEEKLY SOCIALS

Tuesdays

2 - 4pm | 6 - 8pm

At our weekly socials we offer a safe and welcoming space to come and have a chat, and get creative! At the start of a session, we have a bit of a check in, get to know one another and often have a bit of a laugh throughout. 


There is absolutely no pressure to get involved... we encourage you to just come as your are, however you're feeling.

We have a maximum of 12 people at each session, and will often begin by having a bit of check in with on another, get to know each other, chat about anything and everything and try to have a bit of a laugh too.

If you are interested in coming along, please get in touch - we'd love to see you.
