About us

Essentially, Icebreakers is a self-help, mutual support group. Our members establish social networks through the group and often make lifelong friendships. We’ve been here since 1986 and thousands of men have used the group.

We must be getting something right!

The group meetings are every Wednesday at 8pm at No.5 Richmond St, on the 3rd floor, above the back of Kiki Bar on the Minshull St end of Richmond Street, Manchester, and has occasional social events too. PLEASE NOTE – we cannot guarantee admittance after 8:30pm.

We hope that after you have been coming for some time, you will develop new friendships and a social network. Members usually leave once they have done that, because their main reason for attending Icebreakers no longer exists. Once that happens, we feel that we have done our job!
