A busy bi week

What are you up to this week? This week’s bi diary includes meetings in Swansea and Manchester – both on Tuesday evening – and Oxford and Edinburgh on Wednesday. And the week rounds off with Birmingham BiFest.

So depending where you are on Tuesday you could pop along to Manchester’s regular bi social, a pub meet at the Waterhouse pub next to the town hall. Or you could join the Swansea bis for their regular discussion night.

Wednesday if you’re in Oxford the local bis have a meet-up in the Castle Tavern, while in Edinburgh there’s the monthly Bi Edinburgh meet at the LGBT centre on Broughton Street.

Saturday sees Birmingham BiFest. This is their second – last autumn’s was a splendid day out for bis, partners, friends and allies, and this one promises to be even better.

See our calendar page to keep up to date with bi events around the UK – or add things in your area!

Bi Wales

This Saturday 12th December in Swansea is Bi day. Bi Cymru are holding several events and fundraising for members, supporters and friends to get involved in.

First the long awaited cake-off between Bi Swansea and Bi Cardiff is taking place at 12 noon in the upstairs room of The Office pub in Castle square. This cake baking competition was designed by the members of Bi Cardiff and Bi Swansea to see who can bake the best cake. Non members and people from elsewhere are welcome to take part and may the best cake win!

After the competition they will be holding a Bring and buy and cake sale in the same room upstairs in The Office pub in Castle Square 2-5pm please come along and bring anything you want to donate as long as it’s saleable quality, not electrical and not alcohol, knives etc. Please also let your friends, family and others know of this great opportunity to get cheap Christmas presents and support Bi Cymru/Wales and Bi Swansea at the same time.

They will be selling any of the cakes from the competition people want to donate, in slices or cupcakes so participants can take some of their cakes home and donate some to the sale if they wish.

They also told us:

“During the Bring and buy and Cake sale we will be having some live accoustic performances to brighten the day and make it more of an event and there will be a chance to meet the Bi Swansea and Bi Cymru/Wales committees and find out more about local groups and plans for the future.

“In the evening we will be fundraising in bars in Swansea, shaking buckets and encouraging people to part with their pennies as a group. If you want to join us for the fundraising we will be mainly in the gay bars and clubs of Swansea, but will also be going to The Office and Monkey bar. We will be starting in Hush at 9pm, followed by The Kings Arms Tavern at 9:30pm; The Office at 10pm; Exchange at 10:15pm; Monkeys at 10:30; Talk of the Town at 10:45 and Champers at 11pm followed by Hush club.

“Please feel free to join us at any point of the night and say hello if you’re out drinking and we come along. If you want to join us on the night, but want to contact us I’ll have the Bi Cymru/Wales and Bi Swansea phone on me so please text or call 07982 308812.
