A CARLISLE woman has set up a Facebook group for women who love going to gigs but don’t like going on their own.
Gals who Gig Cumbria has been set up by Shelby Bradley to encourage women to enjoy live music and to make new friends.
Members of the group can offer tickets to gigs to fellow members or ask if people would like to attend a certain concert.
“It’s harder to make friends as you get older,” said Shelby.
“I’m looking at getting the word out because I think there will be so many women in the same situation as me.”
Only set up last week, the Facebook group has nearly 100 members and Shelby hopes the group will grow and enable women across the region see gigs in Cumbria and across the country that they otherwise wouldn’t have.
The group is based on other similar groups in London and Manchester but is the first of its kind in Cumbria.
“People are dying for this kind of thing,” said Shelby. “I always get asked how do I go out and meet new people, and the group will help people to do that safely.”
Anyone who is interested is encouraged to join the Gals who Gig Cumbria page.
