What’s Going On

Globe Café

We will take a break, and we will be back on 27 June, to start Summer Globe🌞

We did some changes for the summer Globe, we don’t offer the dinner on Monday night, but we have free refreshments🍪.

On Monday, we will have different themes as usual 😊, discussing food for thought questions to share our views with each other. Moreover, there will be various table games you will love to play there 😆. 

Time:  Monday 7.00-8.30pm

Address: Jesmond Parish Church Hall (NE2 4DJ)

On Thursday, we will have a picnic! 🧺 We will be relaxing on the grass, chatting with each other and enjoying sunshine and snacks. We might even play sports like frisbee🥏.

Time: Thursday 1.00-2.30pm

Address: Picnic at Exhibition Park

(N.B. It is only one minute from Jesmond metro station to Jesmond Parish Church Hall. Our volunteers are willing to give you a lift or walk with you home after the Café if you live far away 🙂


Globe Conversation Group 

Globe Conversation Group happens both online and in person. Each group is led by a Globe volunteer and usually has no more than 10 people. We talk about anything and everything, from culture shock, manners, festivals to our views on freedom and love, for example. It is a fantastic way to share your own culture and values with others, learn about the British culture, as well as having fun together in a smaller setting. We currently run 5 groups during the week.
