Established in 1981 as the original Spice Group, there are currently approximately 2000 members all over Manchester and the Northwest, and over 15000 members nationwide.
The focus of our group will always be on providing adventures and unusual experiences to our members. However, there are also an increasing number of members who are purely interested in the amazing social life that the group enjoys. This includes meals out, theatre & concert visits and wild, wild parties!
Each month our newsletter offers events which our members can book onto. We aim to offer at least one activity each weekday evening, which may be a sports event, talks or 'behind the scenes visits', or purely social events such as meals out, theatre, and alternative comedy.
A typical weekend will have daytime and evening events to choose from, plus at least one overnight trip. Depending on the time of year (how cold it is!) these might include watersports, driving activities, mountain sports, all sorts of flying, a ramble or two, mountain biking, de-stress & relaxation opportunities, and at least one party or social activity.
Costs are kept to the minimum, with always a good selection of events for 'under a tenner'. Membership fees work out at just £12 a month - you can't even watch satellite TV for that!
Our members are all ages (over 18) and include all backgrounds, from surgeons to solicitors, single mums to students, extraverts and introverts, singles and couples alike. What unites them is their determination to live life to the full whatever their circumstances or bank balance. As events are aimed at absolute beginners and most members attend events on their own, the group puts great emphasis on ensuring that people feel welcome and at ease when they arrive at events.
If you are interested in joining you can come along to a preview night - these are listed on the web site www.spicemcr.com
