Give it a Go!


Give it a go

We’re so excited to be launching Give it a Go as part of the Festival of Discovery from 24 May - 4 June!

We know how difficult this year has been, with many of the normal opportunities restricted to online. As we’re now able to do more in-person, we’re pleased to bring you a range of activities and events to get involved with.

Give it a Go is your chance to try something new and have a bit of fun! We’re working with societies on a range of events, as well as providing different things and events to get involved with. We hope you love getting involved!
