We think that a social side to the group goes hand-in-hand with our walks. After all, we frequently end a walk with a drink in a pub. And once you're a member, you can come on one of our weekends which is a fantastic way to get to know us.

Thoughout the year, we have occasional socials, whether it's a cinema trip, meal or brewery visit. The photos below give a flavour of our past socials. If you think that the socials calendar is looking a little empty at the moment, please bear in mind that some of our socials are arranged at short notice and, as such, might only be listed on our members' page on Facebook.

If you'd like to organise a social for the Weekend Walkers, contact the Socials Coordinator at socials@mwwalkers.org.uk.

Why not join us in the Briton's, a lively city pub with a wide choice of real ales, lager, wines and spirits. Timing allows you to pop in after work if you want.
Prospective members are welcome to come and have a chat with us; if you're unsure which group we are, look for a sign on our table or ask the bar staff. Pop along if you've been on a walk or if you're thinking of trying one and fancy getting to know a few people first. Some of our longest-standing members started out on a pub night :-)

A rare chance to catch one of the country's most joyously original stand-ups in an intimate club setting, the new arts venue 53Two, along with some other MWWs. It is as part of a Welsh themed section to the Manchester International Festival (although Mark was born in Bristol!)

Booking:

If you're going too, drop us a line and you can arrange to meet up with the other MWWs!

Meeting Point:

53Two arts venue, 8 Albion Street, Park Avenue Car Park, Manchester, M1 5LN at 21:00.



Saturday 8th: Cotton Panic!

Organiser:

Gavin

Description:

As part of the Manchester International Festival, Cotton Panic is a new play co-created by and starring Jane Horrocks (Bubble in Absolutely Fabulous) about the Cotton Famine in Lancashire, where the American Civil War caused the factories' main supply of cotton to dry up. Quote from the website: 'the show uses a compelling collage of live music, drama, words and film to evoke an era lost to history: of hard work, of passion, and of the North of England's inspiring solidarity with the slaves of the American South.' There are a few MWWs going. It should be interesting.

Booking:

If you're going too, drop us a line and you can arrange to meet up with the other MWWs!

Meeting Point:

The play is on at Upper Campfield Market, Liverpool Road, Manchester, ~M3 4FN at 19:30.
