Ever wished there was a tinder for friends? Feeling a bit lonely in the big city? Not anymore you're not!
Our first Speed Mate-ing event was a sell-out so we're back for more!
Grab your tickets and join the friendship revolution!
Rebelling against the pressures of career based scenarios in which we are told to push through situations that make us feel uncomfortable in order to achieve, we invite you to a speed session so silly and inclusive that you'll step outside of usual comfort zone without even realising.
Taking inspiration from dating shows, bad business meetings, teenage sleepovers, art attack and agony aunts, GIRL GANG Leeds invites you to undertake creative challenges and respond to conversational topics, creating authentic connections between new friends, quickly and fear free!
Arrive at 6.30 for a 7pm sharp kick off!
GIRL GANG Leeds is a creative community working to celebrate and uplift people in Leeds by creating fun, safe and empowering spaces for women and non-binary people.
We put on parties, workshops, meetups, exhibitions and more and are always seeking new collaborations. Girl Gang Leeds is a sister community with Girl Gang Edinburgh, Girl Gang Manchester and GIRL GANG Sheffield.
Still unsure? Read about some of the press for previous Speed Mate-ing events in Manchester to ease your fears:
"For those all-too familiar with the principles of speed dating, it would be understandable to expect awkwardly mismatched encounters that lead to little more than a forced conversation.
But to my relief, speed-mateing offers genuine interactions… The effect is reminiscent of that 'best mate' scenario many of us have encountered in the club bathroom, friendship forged over outfit compliments and lipstick-sharing.
Except this time, you're not off your face and you might actually see each other again…. there was nothing but friendliness to be found amidst the waves of open-minded, intelligent women. The atmosphere was buzzing, fuelled by the excitement of trying something new and the energetic Girl Gang team.
Positivity and acceptance was at the core of the activities, with a bit of silliness thrown in for good measure….Girl Gang's speed mate-ing was a success. I connected with smart, funny, like-minded women and had a great night out."
