We are proud to welcome Lancashire businesses to meet, build relationships, inspire & support each other and generate new business at our friendly networking events all along the M65.
Events run at different venues each month, are pay-as-you-go with no membership fees and attract a wide variety of local businesses from across the region.

upcoming events

We run evening events in different venues each month and are pay-as-you-go with no membership fees. Refreshments and supper are provided too. Our evenings are friendly and informal, perfect for new or experienced networkers and all are welcome as we’re not single sector. Most of our events run from 6-8pm on Tuesday evenings. Click an event to see exact location and to book your place via Eventbrite. 

There is no requirement to bring business ‘referrals’, just plenty of business cards! We don’t have formal 60 second pitches, business card draws give the chance to speak to everyone, but only if you wish to. We supply name badges & attendee lists to make it easy to meet new folks.

Bookings are processed via Eventbrite, click any of the images to book. £1 from each attendee is donated to our lovelocal charities Nightsafe & Positive Action for the Community.

There's a really friendly and supportive vibe to this network. Every event has new people to build relationships with. You will not be disappointed!
