The Italian Society Committee for 2022/23.  

Membership Fees

£2.50 Standard Fee - Term 1 


We offer a variety of cultural-related events which run monthly or fortnightly, subject to demand. As a member of the Italian society you’ll be able to participate in them for free.

If you’re more interested in the social side of Italian culture, or you want to do more than just practice the language, join us for our social events. Those we hold most often are as follows:

  • Medicine Events
  • Pre-drink Socials  
  • Public Speakers
  • Italian Lessons 
  • Field Trips

Regular Meeting Times

The Committee gathers once a week in order to discuss current and upcoming events, and the progress of the Society itself. Committee meetings also provide a time to raise any potential concerns, with a view to solve or improve such situations, and a time to recognise and celebrate any successes. In light of this Society members are also more than welcome to attend.
