The event was inspired and organised by NTU Play for Fun, the programme that offers a variety of fun, no-commitment sport and activity sessions at all three campuses.

All females to attended received a free Play for Fun pass, encouraging all to attend to try new activities together as part of This Girl Can, the national Sport England campaign that aims to engage more women in sport and activity at every level.

NTU Girl’s Night In took place on Tuesday 13 November at Nottingham Trent University’s City Student Union. The event saw a record attendance, all there to enjoy everything on offer, from gaming to table tennis and crafts.

The free annual event gave the girls the chance to make their own friendship bracelets, have nails painted and even get involved with micro-volunteering. Attendees were also treated to free pizza, a live DJ and tasty mocktails courtesy of the Cocktail Society.

Attendees had the chance to design their own leggings, with one lucky person winning a pair in the raffle - thanks to NTU Sport Kit partner Kukri. Groups practiced knitting and crocheting skills and NTU Coppa Feel, who are a British Breast Cancer Awareness charity, put on plenty of fun activities to help raise awareness about ‘caring for and knowing your body.’

Featuring amazing performances from NTU Belly Dance and NTU Burlesque, the crowd was left wowed when both clubs saw the night to a crescendo; with cheering at full volume.

Talking about the success of the night, head of Play For Fun and Girls Night In organiser Heidi Spencer had this to say about the event “Girls Night In was fantastic success, it was great to see over 240 female students coming together and engaging in a variety of activities.

“All students that attended the event received a Play for Fun free pass. The Play for Fun programme gives students the opportunity to play sport with no commitment, make new friends and have some fun.”
