15-Minute Friendships Is Taking a Break in December: Back in January 2024!

We hosted our first-ever 15-Minute Friendships event in July and, since then, we've managed to run a minimum of two pop-ups a month (plus online sessions!) for the duration of 2023. It has been amazing meeting so many new people, getting to know you, and hearing your stories.

We're gearing up to host our last pop-up of the year on Wednesday (November 29th) at Left Bank Leeds. After which, there'll be no more 15-Minute Friendships pop-ups until January 2024. We're looking forward to a little break and the opportunity to rest up before the new year, and we hope you all have a relaxing month.

In the meantime, we'd love it if you could take a moment to fill out our End-of-Year Survey! You don't have to have attended a 15-Minute Friendships event to do so, and it would really help us with planning for the project in 2024 and beyond.

It's important to take this moment to acknowledge that December can be a very lonely time for a lot of people. Whether you celebrate seasonal holidays or not, there's a lot of pressure to spend time with family and friends. We've talked about how loneliness can take many different forms, and many people experience loneliness even when surrounded by their loved ones.

Whether you're physically alone or living with feelings of loneliness, we want to support you however we can. While we may not be hosting any pop-ups throughout December, there are a number of resources out there that you can access if you're feeling lonely or low this season. We'll also be regularly checking our Instagram page, so feel free to connect with us on there.

We're still in the process of booking our events for 2024, so we may have a pop up in early-mid January. Otherwise, you'll find us starting the new year as we ended the last one: at Left Bank Leeds from 7pm on the 31st of January 2024. Wishing you all a lovely time and a happy new year!
