GIAG January Round-Up

A little update


We certainly beat those January blues with our fun Give it a Go activities last month! We organised 26 different activities, ranging from open mic nights to sport sessions, and relaxing bath bomb making sessions to give you a break from the library!

We saw an amazing 246 of you engaged in our activities and your top picks for the month were upcycling t-shirts with the fashion society, where t-shirts were transformed in to useful garments for local homeless people. You also rated Newcastle Eagles tickets as a top pick and we have tickets left for the remainder of the season where you can purchase these for half price for all home fixtures! Taekwondo saw great attendance at sessions and was rated your top pick for January!

Don’t just take our word for it – this is what you had to say…

“I really enjoyed it (upcycling t-shirts with the Fashion Society)! It was a relaxing activity to do immediately after an exam.”

 “The (upcycling t-shirts with the Fashion Society) activity was therapeutic in a way -making textile products from old t-shirts. It was something relaxing and enjoyable to do, learn something new - taking a break.”

“Brilliant night at the Newcastle Eagles basketball, would recommend it and go again.”

We have lots of exciting activities planned for February – including our big trip to Edinburgh (including the Underground City of the Dead Tour!). Don’t miss out and book your place now at
