What are Gig Buddies Events?

Gig Buddies group events are hosted by the GB team so that all participants and volunteers in the Gig Buddies project can catch up and do fun stuff in a group setting. 

The number of group events per month is limited because all group events are run as "not-for-profit". This means most events are free, and participants only pay for a group event to help cover the cost of admission tickets, venue hire and/or catering.

The main focus of the Gig Buddies project is to "buddy-up" participants and volunteers so they can catch up and go to their own events together.

How do I join? It’s free to join, just register your attendance by purchasing a free ticket from this page (click 'add to bag' in the top right hand corner and enter your details)

What do I need to play? All Gig Buddies online social events take place on Zoom. For information on how to use Zoom, click here to load up an easy read guide written by Learning Disability Wales.

How does it work? Buddies will be split into two teams (to be decided on the day of the event). Each team member will be sent a link containing words to draw for their fellow team members. Teams have 60 seconds to guess as many words as possible. The team with the highest score is the winner!

Buddies are required to have a pen and pad to hand. Buddies are also required to access two devices, one to generate the words and the other to show their drawings. For example, buddies could load up the link on a smartphone or tablet and show their drawings on a desktop computer or laptop.

*** Gig Buddies online socials are for signed up participants of the project only ***

PLEASE NOTE:

To ensure the event begins on time, we encourage participants to log in to Zoom five minutes prior to the event start time.
