Welcome to Give it a Go

Give it a Go is an events programme full of one off activities for you to try while you are a student here in Sheffield. All the activities work on a pay as you go basis, you must buy your ticket in advance online or from the Students’ Union Box Office. Once you have bought your ticket just turn up on the time and date stated and have fun! Many of our events are run by Clubs and Societies, so it gives you the opportunity to try something new without having to commit your time. Our programme is broken down into: Sports; Creative; Music and Dance; Mind, Body and Soul; Skill and Training; Languages (where you can join one of our many 5 week language courses); and Day Trips (visit a new destination in the UK each Saturday and Sunday).
