New to Spice
SPICE (Special Programme of Initiative, Challenge and Excitement)
- Have you ever thought, “I‘d love to do that, but I just wouldn’t know where to start”?
- Do you want a little more excitement in your life than just going to the pub, doing the DIY or watching TV?
- Are you new to the area? Do you want to go out and NOT talk about work?
- Have your friends settled into a life of “boring” domesticity whilst you want to go out and do something totally amazing?
- Do you want to go into work on Monday morning with the details of your latest crazy adventure?
- Do you want an instant social circle of like-minded fun loving up-for-it people?
- Would you like an unbelievable “hobbies” section on your CV?
With Spice you really can Live Your Dream! Spice offers ordinary people the opportunity to do the most extraordinary things in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Where else could you do a fire eating & breathing workshop, drive a racing car, or a rally car or a tank, or a bus, a fire engine or even a combine harvester! Ever wanted to fly a plane or a helicopter or do aerobatics in a military jet? How about white water rafting, scuba diving, water skiing? Or abseiling, caving, climbing, walking or biking? Getting the picture!
Don’t worry if the adrenaline events are not your cup of tea, we have workshops on just about everything, from flirting to positive thinking, self hypnosis to homeopathy and even repairing your PC. How about a regular sports schedule, or just a great social timetable of meals out, cinema and theatre visits, parties, balls and get-togethers. We have something for everyone!
We are also big on weekend breaks and holidays to exotic locations like New Zealand, Australia, Nepal, Borneo, Kenya, China, Cuba, Egypt and a full skiing program to France, Italy, Andorra, Canada and the USA.
Spice was established over 28 years ago in Manchester and now has groups in nine major cities with 12,000 members nationwide. Each franchise is run by full time Co-ordinators with many years experience in organising group adventure, social and leisure activities and the monthly programme of events is set up with the absolute beginner in mind. As most members attend events on their own, Spice puts great emphasis on ensuring that people feel welcome and at ease when they arrive at events.
So who joins Spice? People of all ages (over 18) from all backgrounds, from surgeons to solicitors, single mums to students, extraverts and introverts, singles and couples alike. What they all have in common is a desire to live life to the full, try new activities, meet new people and enjoy themselves whatever the circumstances.
The full event programme is available through the local websites, and a Spice newsletter also drops regularly through the letter box to invite the members to the coming events and keep them up to date. The costs of the events vary, but are usually cheaper (or better value) than the public price due to group discounts and exclusive Spice deals.
Members select the events they wish to attend (either from their Newsletter or the Web) and then book with their local office. There is no obligation to do a minimum number of events so it’s entirely up to you how many events you attend. You will soon discover that its fun to try anything once with Spice, as our emphasis is always on having fun as part of a group, whatever we are doing.
SPICE is the adventure/social group for people who want to get more out of life, have more fun and friendship, more adventure and excitement - with members from all walks of life as varied as are people, all united in one common purpose of enjoying life to the full!
Spice can be contacted via your local Spice group or by sending for a free information pack. Full joining information is given in the pack or, alternatively, you can join now using our online joining form.
