African Caribbean


Welcome to African Caribbean



The University of Leeds African-Caribbean Society (ACS) is a society bounded by the celebration and education of African and Caribbean culture; a home away from home and a pathway to cultural enlightenment.

We aim to showcase the beauty of African and Caribbean culture at the university and within the wider community in Leeds. 

Our mission is to cultivate an environment of talented individuals who can be provided with a platform to confidently express themselves and inspire one another. We aim to host a range of social and academic events in order to encourage an aspiration for excellence whilst strengthening our sense of community.



This year, we have planned plenty of social events to allow our members to get to know each other, whilst sharing and enjoying each other’s cultures, like girls/guys nights and games nights. In addition to this, as a means of successfully aiding our members in developing their own personal brands, we have planned many academic events with the aid of our fantastic sponsors. This is in the hope of giving Africans and Caribbean’s at the university excellent experience and skills that will be transferable into the working world.

In addition to this, we are extremely excited about all of our mentorship schemes that will be opening up this year!

In the 2023/24 academic year, we intend to hold some of the following events:


Termly ACS Movie Nights and Games Nights

ACS Ball

Take Me Out (Joint with Northern Alliance)

Sip and Paint

Girls Dinners

Mandem Fifa and Chill

Potential ACS Sports League

ACS Talent Coffee House 

Debate Nights

Summer BBQ Sports Day

Conferences and Employability Workshops

Please note that for our events we have a no refund policy, except for emergencies/extenuating circumstances 72 hours to the event.

Please be aware that refunds are not promised and are typically declined since ticket sales are the primary source of funding for our events.

Two weeks notice is required for larger events like the ACS Ball; after that, we won't be able to process a refund, unless emergencies/extenuating circumstances, you would need to inform us 72 hours before the event.

If you bought a ticket for an event that has been cancelled or rescheduled, the ACS will reach out about processing refunds.
