act marketplace in the UK

Unleash your inner explorer
Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Your alarm clock screams at you in the morning. You lazily hit the snooze button with no ‘get-up-and-go’ in your body at all. Then you rush through your morning routine, spend the day at work, and when it's time to go back home you throw together a quick dinner and settle yourself in for some mindless social media scrolling. And the worst part… you do it all again tomorrow.

We all get caught in this cycle sometimes. But what if there was a way to break free? What if there was a platform bursting with exciting new acts right on your doorstep, waiting to ignite your curiosity and spark a sense of wonder?

And what if you could play a role in shaping the acts that are on this platform?

Hello, Brits! 99active here. We're thrilled to announce the launch of our unique acts marketplace in the UK. We're passionate about helping people like you connect with your local communities and discover the joy of lifelong learning through unforgettable acts.

The problem: Is boredom taking over your evenings?

Let's face it, your evenings can sometimes feel a bit…well, predictable. Are we right? Now, there's nothing wrong with curling up on the sofa after a long day. But if that's become your go-to exciting leash on life every night, we have to be the ones to tell you, your leash is far too short. You’re missing out on something truly special. You’re missing out on living, experiencing, connecting and discovering.

A recent study by the National Health Service (NHS) found that a significant portion of UK adults struggle with feelings of boredom and a lack of connection. This can lead to a decline in mental and physical well-being, leaving us feeling stagnant and uninspired. Do you ever feel this way?

And the culprit… often it’s the lack of accessible and exciting acts in your local area. Humans crave adventure. Humans want to learn new things. And humans yearn to connect with others who share our passions.

It’s human nature to want more out of life than what Netflix, social media and your sofa can offer. But The big problem is that finding those acts can feel like putting on a blindfold and trying to navigate the Masone Labyrinth in Fontanellato, Italy (psst... That’s the largest labyrinth in the world at a whopping 7 hectares). Far too challenging, right?

The solution: 99active - A world of acts awaits
Everyone should have the chance to explore, learn, and grow through enriching acts. That’s the 99active way. And that's why we've created a vibrant marketplace where passionate individuals ("Teachers") can share their unique skills and knowledge with curious learners ("Students") like you.

Imagine learning the art of pottery from a local potter, brewing your own craft beer with a passionate brewer, or embarking on a guided wildlife photography tour in the heart of the British countryside.

Those are just a few examples of the amazingly diverse acts you can discover on 99active.

And as we’re just launching in the UK, it's the perfect time for you to tell us what you want so we can find the right providers in your local area to provide those acts to you. Ready to tell us? Complete this short 2-minute survey.
