Let us take you to the prehistoric ages starting our journey in ‘The Land Before Tyne’. Imagine all 4500 Freshers roaming around campus amongst dinosaurs, mammoths and sabre toothed tigers as we recreate a time before the Toon existed. Before you hit Newcastle’s nightlife this week, it’s time for our very own Students’ Union to host a party of Jurassic proportions!

Our famous red-bricks will be transformed into Jurassic Park’s signature gates, equipped with breath-taking projection mappings to set the scene for our prehistoric takeover. Alongside will be an authentic steel drum band, as well as a variety of street food vendors where you can grab yourself some grub using your free food voucher courtesy of Longhorns, Zapatista and Manny’s Pizza.

Introducing music from Junk Tape…

Also On Sunday Night:

Don’t fancy the prehistoric takeover? Leap forward in time and watch the new Western epic The Magnificent Seven at our local Empire cinema. Starring Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington, Matt Bomer and Ethan Hawke, the story tells the tale of seven outlaws employed to protect townspeople from deadly industrialist control but is it all about money…
