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.
