What Is It?

Been on the lookout for an interesting activity, or perhaps a like-minded group that can join you in a common hobby? Well, you’re in luck! Brigge {a Chennai-based networking platform for leisure activities} is officially launching in Bangalore and they have an entire week of activities for you at Bangalore Hobby Week! Available on mobile as well as desktop, Brigge is described as a mix of Facebook and Meetup. All you need to do is sign yourself up, fill in your interests and browse through the groups and activities {hosted by Champions aka professionals or experts} happening at partnered venues across the city, as part of the ‘leisure festival’. Easy peasy!

Who Is It For?

If you’re the kind who prefers lounging about at home with a book or if you’re glued to a video game, this might not be for you. Oh wait, it could be, in fact! With everything from pub-hopping and fitness to games and comedy shows, there’s something for everyone at this week-long fest.

Why Should I Go For It?

Hoping to kickstart communities in the city, Brigge’s Bangalore Hobby Week has a bit of everything. While movie buffs can join the Roof Top Film Festival that will have screenings and discussions, there’s beer workshops and cocktail making sessions for the guzzlers out there. Fitness enthusiasts, bookmark their Aqua Zumba session by city-based trainer, Jenifir Sharma  or the belly-dancing workshop. Love nail art? Join the Nail Art Fest {by Polished Nail Studio}, head there with your favourite design and you can get them done on your nails. That’s not all. Music jams, comedy shows, writing workshops, YouTube workshops and even a military-collectibles exhibition are all part of the activities you get to pick from!

When: Friday, August 26 to Sunday, September 4

Where: Venues differ as per activities
