Events Calendar.

Whether you're after live music, food and drink, or a little boogie, we can usually provide something to keep you happy! If you’re looking to develop a new skill, flex your creative muscles, or simply unwind after a day of lectures, you’re sure to find something in our calendar of Give It A Go events.
