What are Gig Buddies Events?

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

All group events are run as "not-for-profit" 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.
