Due to Covid restrictions, each booking is limited to 11 attendees (including one Gig Buddies Sydney staff member). We want to see as many of you as possible before Christmas. Due to the limited numbers at each event, and in the interest of fairness, we ask that buddies attend ONE event only.

The weekend hangouts

On the subject of our social gatherings, this past weekend we held our first two Gig Buddies Sydney picnic events.

Due to the inclement weather we headed indoors on Saturday (7/11) - thanks to everyone who joined Bec in the Strawberry Hills Hotel, Surry Hills.

While on Sunday (8/11) the sun showed up and we were able to unfurl our picnic rugs - thanks to all those who joined Chelsea in Parramatta.
