We understand that making new friends can feel a bit daunting…So, join our easy going speed-friending event, designed for everyone. Take a step towards meaningful connections, find a new friend, maybe even come to Big Welcome Fair together the day after?

Ready to make new friends in no time? We've got you covered with our speed friending event.

Here's how it works: 

  • Rotation: You'll sit with others in pairs and chat for around 3-5 minutes

  • Icebreakers: Start conversations with fun questions – hobbies, movies, travel – you name it!

  • Timer: Switch partners when you hear the bell – it's time for a new chat

  • Meet many: Rotate through various pairs, meeting a bunch of awesome people 

  • No pressure: Feel at ease! This is all about having a blast, breaking the ice, and enjoying the moment

  • Friendship details: Note down contacts of people you connect with

  •  Follow-up: Reach out after to arrange hangouts, chats, or activities 

Feeling nervous? We get it... And that’s totally normal. Come along and see how it goes, this is a great way to expand your social circle!
