12th Lustrum: Cosmopolitan

Next year Ibn Battuta will celebrate its 60th birthday, the diamond anniversary! In light of this festive event, the Lustrum Committee will organize several activities and parties in the Association year 2020-2021. The main event they'll organize is the Lustrum Week starting at August 25 and ending on September, 5, with the theme 'Cosmopolitan'! During this week, a lot of different activities will be organized by the Lustrum Committee, which you can all join. For more updates during the year, keep an eye on our website, socials as well as the website and socials from the Lustrum Committee! Here, you can find the terms and conditions!

Lustrum Openingsreception

This activity is canceled. It is now merged with the Grand Opening. 

Grand opening

Get the full experience by joining the grand opening in the evening as well, which will take place in BaxBier and where you will be offered unlimited drinks. There is no better way to start, right? You can sign up from the 17th of June, 7 PM and it will cost €25,-! 

Foodtruck-Friends-Family Day

Want to introduce your family & friends to Ibn Battuta and the Lustrum? Then take them to the Foodtruck-Friends-Family Festival at Stadslab Groningen to chill out, enjoy some drinks and the best streetfood! With the summer in full swing by then and some fresh tunes blasting through the speakers, we believe we have the killer combination for a perfect day. You can sign up from the 17th of June, 5 PM and it will cost €12,50-


With the Wintersport to Risoul being the last time we traveled, it is finally time to do so again! We have missed out on some great trips, but we are doing our best to soften that pain by answering all your prayers. With the help of the famous projectgroup Schier, Ibn's very familiar and favorite location will be visited during the Lustrum. Oh yes, it is true: from the 27th until the 29th, the Lustrum travel weekend sets sail to Schiermonnikoog! You can sign up from the 21st of June, 5 PM and it will cost €80,-

E-chopper tour

After a few days of relaxation on Schier, it is time to Pace it Up in our own beloved city! And no part of the city will be left out, as we will tour around on some blazing e-choppers! No driver’s licence? No worries! You can either join us on an alternative for which you don’t need a licence, or you can hop on the back of an e-chopper with one of your friends. You can sign up from the 17th of June, 5 PM and it will cost approximately €15,-

Cocktail workshop

How better to end your day than with a drink? During a workshop in Donovan's, we will learn how to make the best cocktails and even better, getting to drink them as well. A great opportunity to talk and hear about the experiences of the Lustrum so far! 


Always wanted to ski, but not a fan of cold weather? Then this summer proof activity is the right one for you. On the 31st of August, we take you water skiing at Break Out Grunopark. While watching your friends trying their best on the water, you can either chill out on the beach or play some nice beach volleyball. Afterwards you can stay and enjoy the evening sun at our own Costa del Sol!


After a week full of activities, we get it if you start to feel tired. Luckily, we got you covered for some Reloading! The Forum Groningen will welcome us and open the doors to our own private cinema hall. Popcorn and comfy chairs are waiting for you. And which movie we will be watching is yet to be decided. By you! 

Dinner at ‘t pakhuis

Later that day, we want to invite you to the Pakhuis for a nice dinner. Not having to cook and doing the dishes afterwards should be enough to convince you to join, but next to that it will be a great opportunity to have a chat in a laid-back atmosphere. You can sign up from the 17th of June, 5 PM and will cost €17,50-

Lustrum battle

As we will probably experience some hot temperatures during our Lustrum, it is time to cool down a bit. We will be Slippin’ on an inflatable obstacle course of 60 meters and unleash the inner sportsman in ourselves while competing against each other in a fun and challenging battle.You can sign up from the 17th of June, 5 PM. 


In the evening, the Pedelgenootschap is inviting you to Villa Volonté for an evening full of singing and drinking, while Sipping some beers. Those who have never been to a cantus, the ones who love to go and  those who haven’t been there for a (very) long time: you are all more than welcome to join! As cherry on top, you will receive a customized beer mug as a memory of what will be a wonderful evening.

Alumni activity

All good things come to an end, but not without a bang. On Friday, we invite our alumni and students for a Throwback. You will have a really nice lecture, that would be announced later on. This activity will end with drinks and snacks, but don’t consume too much, as the gala will start right after! You can sign up from the 24th of June, 5 PM. 


In the evening, the Loods is opening its doors for us for the highlight of the Lustrum: the grand gala! We will start with a three-course meal in the open air after which we will make our way inside to enjoy some unlimited drinks and dancing until the early hours. You can sign up from the 24th of June, 5 PM and it will cost around €60,-
Passepartouts holders are already signed in for the dinner and gala!

Passepartout Day

If we haven’t given you enough reasons to buy a Passepartout already, we have one final card upon our sleeve that will hopefully convince you: a Passepartout Day! A day only for holders of the diamond and golden ticket. In case you are wondering what we are going to do on that day: there is only one way to find out!
