Christmas in Newcastle 2017

These are the events taking place this year:

For students who will be staying in Newcastle over the Christmas period there are a number of fun group activities to take part in. These are a great way to meet other students, both UK and International, especially during the time when the University will be closed, and many students will be away. You don’t need to have anyone to go to the events with, as students will meet

Christmas in Newcastle is a great way of meeting other people as all those attending the Events will begin in December – with some events which you need to pay for, and some which are free. The highlight of the programme is the traditional Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day

Most events will require you to book in advance, unless they clearly state ‘no booking required’. Booking is through the University Webstore from 1st December 2017

Please note, tickets for the Christmas Dinner will not be available until mid-December. Times provided below are for a guide only, once you have booked for these events you will be sent a follow up email with full instructions on the meeting location, and any other necessary information.
