We think that a social side to the group goes hand-in-hand with our walks. All socials, except for the New Members' socials, are for members. In addition to the socials listed here, we usually visit a pub close to the the railway station at the end of the walk, and everybody is very welcome to come along. You may want to make a note of the return train times as people return home at different times. 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.





Wednesday 7th: New Members Pub Social




We're gathering in the Knott Bar near Deansgate station in the town centre from 19:00. If you are new to the group or contemplating joining, come down and have a chat. Look for the sign on the table or ask the bar staff to point us out.
The Knott Bar is a great bar with lots of atmosphere - an industrial style bar before that became the way that all new trendy bars had to be. Food is served here which I believe ends at 20:00. Get here early!


Just turn up!

Meeting Point:

Knott Bar, 374 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4LY. Meet from 19:00.
