Young Adults Manchester Meet Up

If you’re aged 16-30 and living with, or beyond, a brain tumour diagnosis, join us on Saturday 25 January for some quirky games fun at North Star Piccadilly Café in Manchester.

Please meet us at 11.30am at this cosy café where we’ll have a range of board games, from the classics to some awesome new games on the scene. You might find your new favourite game, stick to what you know, or feel free to bring your own, it’s completely up to you! 

We will also be having lunch here, and we’ll finish off the day with some delicious desserts.

Please book your place below – we like to know who to expect and wouldn’t want anyone to miss out.

Do not pass go. Do not collect £200. Go straight to North Star Piccadilly for some quirky games fun!

What should I expect?

Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a plus one or a newbie. We’re an informal and friendly bunch (promise) and our meet ups are a safe space to get to know new people with similar experiences.

If you’d like to bring a plus one with you, please do – this can be a family member, a friend or a partner.

We’re also holding a very special meet up for parents and carers of young adults who are living with or beyond a brain tumour. 

Where are we meeting?

At the North Star Piccadilly Café at 11.30am.

Please, try not to worry about…

  • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge.
  • Not making friends. We guarantee you will, everyone is in a similar boat and understands your situation so you’re sure to make friends. Plus, our friendly team are there to help too.
  • Fatigue. You’ll be surrounded by people who understand and if there’s anything you don’t want to do, or if you just want some time to relax, that’s 100% okay!
  • Not being good at board games. This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s not the winning but the taking part (and having fun) that counts.
  • Coming alone. You’re welcome to bring a plus-one, however, you’re sure to meet lots of people so don’t worry if you do come alone; you soon won’t be!

Please make sure you book your space in advance, so we know you’ll be joining us. If you have any questions, or would like help to arrange travel, please contact the Young Adults Team on YAS@thebraintumourcharity.org
