Upcoming Events Latest News

For all you freshers, welcome to Hindu and Sikh (HAS) society, and for those of you returning, we are back bigger than ever with a range of COVID friendly events to get you through the next year!

Before you dismiss us as being a very religious society, STOP! Contrary to the name, this society is not just about the religion and definitely not just those who practice Hinduism or Sikhism. HAS society is a community that welcomes students from all backgrounds to enjoy social, religious and cultural events.

Winner of the Campaign of the Year, Best Society Campaign, Most Improved Society in 2019 and Best Intersociety Collaboration last year, our society offers an active contribution to university life, providing a variety of different social events including:

  • Gurdwara and Hindu Temple visits
  • Religious celebrations & cultural events - we hold events to celebrate Indian festivals such as Garba, Vaisakhi and Diwali.  
  • Fundraisers for important causes - as a society we raise awareness of current issues.  
  • Social Events - such as bar crawls, fusion nights, and regular food stalls, including Langar on campus, where we serve free traditional Indian food from the Gurdwara.  
  • Movie nights - members can kick back and relax while watching some of their favourite Bollywood movies. 
  • Dance workshops - members have the opportunity to learn dances by working closely with the North East Bhangra Society and NU Bollywood Dance Society. 

This is just a glimpse of what we have planned this year so be sure not to miss out. We look forward to seeing you! 

Why Purchase Membership?

At only £5, HAS membership gives you discounts on all our events (in turn saving you more than £5), our members-only mailing list giving you first access to events and allowing you to run and vote for the next committee. 

Meeting Days, Times and Venues

We aim to have our socials on a fortnightly basis. Meeting days, times and venues will be released closer to the time of the event. Usually, these details are given on our Facebook group and Instagram which you can find links for below. There are no pre-requisites for joining the Hindu and Sikh society.
