From art & crafts to computer clubs, knitting to reminiscence groups - we have an exciting social activity for you in Stoke on Trent and the area.

A great opportunity for friendship and enjoyment

As we get older, we may find we have more time on our hands, just as everyone else seems to be busier. It may be physically more difficult to get out and about, but taking part in social activities can help us to do things we enjoy and stay connected with others.

What social activities can I join in Stoke on Trent and the area?

Reminiscence groups

A reminiscence group is an interesting and engaging way of thinking about times gone by, sharing stories and experiencines and building relationships.

Knit and chat

Opportunity to get creative, have fun and get knitting in the company of others. Enjoy refreshments and the chance to chat and meet new people.

Arts and crafts

Try something new, whether it's painting, drawing or crafting something out of different materials - come along to one of our arts and crafts clubs and get creative.

Computer clubs

Suitable for people of any ability, whether you have experience or not - get involved in our computer clubs and learn how to browse the web, use email and more.
