Bringing men together 

The Pit Stop brings men together through activities and conversation to build friendship, connection and a sense of belonging. MensCraft hosts various Pit Stop meetings each week. The inspiration for these Pit Stops is the idea of men functioning best when they have the solidarity of their own pit crew: other men who they can regularly check-in with for support, understanding, laughter, light-hearted and stimulating discussion and activity.
Each Pit Stop is facilitated by an experienced and friendly coordinator. The success of our first Pit Stop, in Norwich, has led to us creating similar versions across towns in Norfolk and Waveney with more to follow owing to their demand and popularity. Come along, join in and see for yourself!

You will: 

  • Meet, socialise and bond with other men in a safe and relaxing environment 
  • Take part in different group activities – from board games and cards to visual arts and crafts 
  • Go on occasional field trips – visits to local sites of interest, museums, galleries etc. 
  • Hear from guest speakers and visitors with relevant special interests 


Pit Stops are held throughout the week. Go to our Events Page for details of timings across locations or download our latest PitStop schedule.


Pit Stops are held across Norfolk and Waveney: Dereham, Downham Market, Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn, Lowestoft, Norwich, Thetford, Watton and Wymondham.


All men aged 18 + are welcome. Whatever your circumstances or situation we’d be glad to see you and ensure you’d be made to feel welcome. 

What’s the cost? 

There’s no cost or fee for admission to any Pit Stop and light refreshments are provided. 


Our Pit Stop coordinators are based across Norfolk and Waveney. Go to our Events Page to find Pit Stop activities close to you and the contact email of your local co-ordinator.
