Social Events

Each Dates-n-Mates branch offers a regular programme of social events and activities for members in a variety of venues in their local community.


All activities provide an inclusive, accessible and fun environment to develop meaningful connections with other people.

Members play an active role in choosing the activities their branch host by regularly suggesting ideas and providing feedback. 

Events could include dinner and drinks, bowling, dance classes, club nights, speed dating or games nights. 

We also offer large open events to celebrate seasonal occasions such as Valentines and Christmas. You do not need to be a member to attend the open events.


Virtual Events

During the Covid-19 lockdown and restrictions in 2020 and 2021, Dates-n-Mates introduced a variety of virtual events. 

These activities included online discos, quizzes, games nights, chats, cooking classes and karaoke.

Dates-n-Mates remain passionate and committed to providing opportunities to socialise and feel connected and included throughout the pandemic and beyond.

Dates-n-Mates will continue to facilitate online events to run alongside usual in-person activity. Members are therefore given the opportunity to connect with others outside of their local area.
