In in Bristol it’s the delayed bi meet which would normally have been on last week – 6pm at Watershed, Canons Road. Look for the table with the purple teapot.

Wednesday during the daytime there’s a bi drop-in space at the Unity Centre in Swansea from 1pm to 4pm. Bring your bi questions!

And in Leicester it’s Big Bi Fun Day in the afternoon. Which finished early enough that you can probably get home in time for Eurovision after, if you like…


Never been to a bi group before?

  • For the coffee & pub type meetups – like in Nottingham or Brighton – try Hannah’s guide here.
  • Gaming meetups like those in Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham are good for gamers and making casual acquaintance friends, but serious bi talk is tricky while you work out which move your character should make next.
  • For the talky space meetups – like Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow or Edinburgh, in community centre spaces – there’s Jen’s guide here.

Here are our UK & Ireland listings of local bi groups and regular meetups.
