Do you host events in my area?
At the moment the majority of our events are in Glasgow, but we are fast building partnerships with organisations around the country to provide events all that server the length and breadth of the country. We analyse the towns that our members live in all the time. The more members we get from outside Glasgow the more events we will programme there.
