We are a Hindu Soceity that focuses on protecting, preserving, practicing and promoting Hindu Dharma among students all across the UK. We welcome people from all backgrounds into our society.
Many events for our members are organised throughout the year, beginning with our Meet and Greet, giving you the chance to mingle with the rest of our members and get to know your committee.
As a society, we are affiliated to National Hindu Students’ Forum (NHSF (UK)) who represent over 48 UK Universities and 1000+ Hindu students, making NHSF (UK) the largest Hindu student body in Europe. NHSF (UK) host many national events such as DharmaFest (Performing Arts) and Sport Competitions across the UK.
We also attend North Zone Garba to celebrate the Hindu festival of Navratri, held in Manchester. A great chance to meet up and get to know the other Hindu societies from across the North. Of course we will be celebrating Diwali and Holi, holding regular aarti and fun sessions, including debates, quizzes, as well as trips to our local temple to give you the opportunity to stay in touch with (or get to know) the Hindu faith. Our Holi event was a sell-out last year so make sure you register your interest!
Alongside all of this, we also do our bit for charity, holding fundraiser (like bake sales) for our local charity; The People’s Kitchen.
SOCIALS!!! Keeping a tight link with our members is important for us, so we hold regular socials, like Bollywood nights, society meals, bowling and plenty more.
If sports is your thing, we run Football, Badminton, Kho-Kho and Kabaddi. Never heard of the latter two? Don’t worry, if you want to get involved we’ll teach you. We can represent Northumbria at the North Zone AND National Sports Competitions too!
We encourage people of all faiths and backgrounds to become a member of our wonderful society. If you want to feel closer to home or learn about our faith, we will always do our best to make you feel welcome.
We are one of Northumbria’s fastest growing societies, having been highly commended at the Students’ Union Activities awards for our Holi event in 2014 and winning Best Cultural Event 2015! This year promises so much more and we are looking forward to welcoming you into our Hindu Soc family!
