Meet-ups / Groups

The café is a great space to use for your group. Our spacious basement cafe has plenty of room for even large groups and we serve hot and cold food and drinks until we close at 7pm (5pm Saturdays).

If you are a group who would like to use the café for your regular meetings, and would like us to set aside a table or two for you, then let us know how many people and what time you’ll be here, and we’ll be more than happy to reserve space for you if you’re buying food or drinks.

The café space can also be hired to put on events such as film screenings or discussions after the café is closed (7pm weekdays and 5pm Saturdays). In this instance, there is a fee to cover our costs (overheads and staffing) and use of the space.  Please get in touch to discuss  how we can accommodate  you. We can provide refreshments, cakes and snacks at our usual prices.

We have a number of groups who regularly use the café for their meet ups.

  • We have a knitting group who come on Friday evening around 5pm, this is an informal group so bring your wool and needles and introduce yourself to the rest of the knitters.
  • Amnesty International letter writing group bi-monthly on Saturdays, you can find out more here.
  • Vegan Runners Manchester meet on some Saturday mornings, post run for breakfast,  you can join and check their calendar on their facebook page.
  • Manchester Vegetarian and Vegan Group meet monthly on the first Saturday of the month.
