What is a
We now host 'Circle' Friending Nights for men and women, regardless of their relationship status, to make friends with others in their local area and increase their 'circle' of friends. With a similar format to our other events, you have a chance to chat for 6 minutes with up to 30 people in your local area to make friends.
So what happens when you arrive at your chosen venue?
We have a separate Facebook Page for Everyone - regardless of age or relationship status - to follow and make friends - 'Circle' Friending
Arrival and Registration
When you arrive, you will be welcomed by your host, who will check you in and give you your personalised 'Circle' Match Record (this includes your Red/ Green Number).
Your host will talk to you about how the night will run and answer any questions you may have. Please make sure we have the correct contact details for you to give any matching friends.
After getting a drink and a short period of mingling in the bar, at 7.30pm you need to make your way to the table number that corresponds with the number on your 'Circle' Match Record. Once everyone is seated with their first friend, the bell will ring to signify the start.
After 6 minutes, the people with the Red numbers stay seated and the Green numbers move on to their next friend.
How it works
Depending on the size of the venue and the amount of people attending, a 'Circle' Friending event is split into two or three lots of 5 friends, each lasting around 30 minutes. There will be a 20 minute break after each session, for a comfort break, time to get a drink from the bar or chat to those from your group.
The two groups of people (red and green) are of mixed gender. You will have 6 minutes with each person in the other group. In the two breaks and afterwards, you will have a chance to chat to those people in your group. You will have a chance to match with anyone in either group.
After each chat, tick the box if you would like to be friends and see that person again. If you do not, leave the 'Circle' - Friends column blank.
What happens next?
There is then an opportunity for everyone to stay and chat in the venue - please feel free to stay and socialise. There are all the people in your group still to chat to and get to know.
At the end of the night, you must ensure your friend choices are complete (for both groups) in your 'Circle' Match Record and hand it in to your host.
At a 'Circle' Friending Night - our aim is to bring people together to make new circles of friends.
Once we have collated all the information from the night, we will email you to let you know of any mutual friendships along with their chosen contact information (email, mobile number or both).
