Local Groups

There are a variety of local bi meets across the country. They are mostly either held in community centres or in public spaces like pubs and cafes. Some are more focused on social support, others on socialising. Please note the local groups, events, websites and email lists linked to here are not run by BCN.

Our “diary box” in the side column on each page of the website covers the advertised dates of upcoming bi meetings, but check with groups in case an individual event has been cancelled or postponed.
