Adult Services

Adult Socials and Events

Meet like-minded people from the LGBTQ+ community at our adult socials and events across Milton Keynes and Bedford.

From brunch to hiking, pamper evenings to dog walks, we hold many different socials throughout the year, giving everyone the opportunity to meet new friends.

Keep your eyes peeled on our events page for up-and-coming events, some organised by Q:alliance and others supported by us, but all designed for you.



Q:alliance hosts a variety of social spaces every month, with some being recurring events, and others being one off specials. Check out some of our repeating events below:

Q:offee – Every second Thursday of the month at BarBar’s, from 7:30 until 9:00pm. If you’re looking for a chill space, then look no further. Our monthly Q:offee is the ideal place to start attending our social sessions, perfect for new service users. BarBar’s offers an intimate space to grab a hot drink and meet some fellow community members.

Geek Out – Twice a month, Tuesdays from 6pm at Midsummer Tap. From board games to video games, Geek Out is the perfect opportunity to show off those dice rolling skills. You’ll find a variety of board and card games supplied by us, as well as a Nintendo Switch station. You can also bring your own games.

Cinema Club – Once a month, day varies. We run a community vote via Instagram every month, so YOU get to have a say on what film we see. Grab some popcorn and pull up a seat with us.

Physical & Mental Health

We understand that taking care of your physical and mental wellbeing can be tough at times, so we look to host a variety of opportunities for you to get out and about, as well as tapping in to some key tools that you can use to support yourself.

Park Walks – In collaboration with Parks Trust, our Park Walks events offer you the opportunity to explore some of Milton Keyne’s most beautiful scenery. Each walk is different, from walks in the woodland, to mindfulness and historical monument tours, we hope these sessions help you fall in love with being outdoors.

Yoga – Once a month, hosted by David at Whitespace Yoga Studios. Yoga is a  great way to nurture both the body, and mind. This class is open to any skill level, whether you’re trying to get fit or tap into the mindfulness of Yoga, come and get your zen on.

Mindfulness – Days vary. With mental health being a hot topic, our aim is to provide safe spaces where we help to provide skills and techniques for the community to utilise in their day to day.
