Newcastle Tamil and Malayali Society
University of Newcastle Upon Tyne
We are a cultural society that provides opportunities for people across Newcastle and the North of England to engage with and learn about Tamil and Malayali cultures.
From our fortnightly ‘Chai and Chat’ to our Dance Workshops and Food Stalls across the university we bring together Tamils, Malayalis, and people of other cultures. This all builds up towards our main event of the year, our annual charity ball: ‘Aasai Ball’, in which we donate to a selected charity. We are also actively involved in dance competitions! The most recent one being Showdown 2020. For the coming year, we wish to introduce a variety of dance workshops with external Tamil and Malayali choreographers and also further promote our society to students outside of Newcastle University.
