Rotary Action Summit Newcastle 2024


The Newcastle Action Summit is the flagship national event for Rotary GB&I in 2024, and is open to every Rotarian.

Taking place over the weekend of November 8th to 10th at the Crowne Plaza Stephenson Quarter Hotel, right in the centre of Newcastle, our theme will be ‘North Star – One Year In’.

Now is your chance to:

  • Join in with friends and fellow Rotarians from across our Great Britain and Ireland.
  • Make new acquaintances and contacts.
  • Tell everyone about what your club is proud of achieving in 2024, either in a speaking slot or a display.
  • Find out what has been happening in the last year as we start to see the impact of North Star.
  • See how your club can really benefit through our Zone-wide drive to re-energise Rotary through innovation and enterprise.
  • Learn from other clubs.
  • Meet the experts, leaders and support officers who can make a difference for you.

Above all – enjoy yourselves - let’s remember Rotary is about having fun helping people.
