How to find events near you using the Map

The events map shows events across the whole UK.
It's helpful to bookmark this on your phone for use during Outreach.

Finding Events

On a mobile device click the down arrow to see search options

On a desktop or mobile device click the down arrow again to see full search options

Zoom in to your location by postcode

In the 'Postcode lookup' box, type in the first part of your postcode and the map will zoom to display at least two events centered geographically on your location.

Searching/Filtering Events

You might want to see just events related to a particular topic or group or location. Simply enter text into the 'Text Search' box.

If you enter any word it will show all events with that word somewhere in them. If you want to seach for a phrase, enclose it in quotes "dirty water" Otherwise it will find events with either word in it "Dirty" OR "Water" which is probably not what you wanted. You can also search for icons in the events eg drumming 🥁
Some common icons used in events are:
🔥 Protest
📣 March
🥁 Drumming
💥 Campaign
🎭 Performance/Theatre eg Reds
🍄 Community Assembly
⚖️ Court case
🎪 Circus/Festival
⛺ Camping

If you have already used the postcode search and then use the text search, you may need to manually zoom out using the arrows in the top left of the screen to display the search results on the map.

Event Summary

Hover your mouse pointer over an event to see the event title.

Event Details

Click on an event title or pin to see the details.
