Ciao a tutti!

Welcome to our page for the Italian Society at the University of Leeds ! We love all things Italian and would love for you to join our Society, where we are proud to offer a great place for both learners and speakers of Italian to meet, hang out and for everyone to getinvolved in a variety of events and socials.


We organise lots of Italian themed events and aim to run them on a weekly-fornightly basis (Need to remember we are here to get a degree too …. )

Some examples of Italian Socials in the past have been:

• Italian themed Otley runs (Also joined with other Language Societies such as FrenchSoc and SLAPsoc)

• Barista sessions at a fantastic Italian coffee shop nearby

• Pub quizzes

• Italian speaking coffee mornings

• Film screenings of Italian films

• Great nights out to all the best bars and clubs in Leeds

We want to make this year the best year for the society so we have many more ideas of new socials to include this year but of course we would love to hear any ideas that our fellow Italians may have !!


On top of this, we work closely with LivItaly, Opera North and the Italian department to give you all more information and deals to help you get involved with Italian culture in Leeds.


Since becoming official just a few years ago, we have won the Riley Award for 'BEST NEW SOCIETY' and in 2015 and got a segment written about us in a local magazine! From here, we are constantly improving Italian Society, and have big plans for the coming year, so it's definitely worth getting involved!

The magazine article:



A great way to meet us, the committee, as well as other members of the society, your fellow course mates and to find out more about the Italian Society is to come to our 'Give it a Go' event at the start of this year.

This year, we will be holding our first event, An Antipasto Evening at Terrace- an excellent bar in the Union where there will be a variety of meats, cheeses, olives etc and some Prosecco, a great way to start the year off Italian style! This will be a lovely social evening filled with fellow Italians that you won’t want to miss, so please keep 26th September free in your diary !! If you aren't able to come then don't worry as we will be sure to repeat this social again !


Every year we organise a trip in December, after the term ends, to Italy. Last year we went to Rome, which was very successful and we had such a lovely time socialising together and seeing all the wonderful sights. This year we want to make it even more successful! We would like to go somewhere new and get as many of you to come, so if you have a destination in mind please let us know (Our info is below) ! We will organise many opportunities to visit all the sights, dine asthe Italians do & much more!?

The trip is always popular and places are very limited, so make sure you are a member of Italian Society (otherwise you won't be eligible to come along) !


And we'll be sure to let you know more details and keep you up to date with events etc nearer the time!
