Highlights included Indian dancing by undergraduate students Ramandeep Mahil and Hansa Bhalsod (Applied Business Management BSc), a Nigerian song by postgraduate Sanmi Famuyide (Applied Environmental Economics MSc) and American rap by Benji Owusu-Daaku (Applied Business Management BSc). The Chinese society performed a drama, while local children played the harp and mandolin.

Professor Jeff Waage, provost of Wye campus, opened the event, focusing on the international diversity at Wye, where students come from more than 40 countries worldwide.

The annual event, which attracted more than 200 people and took place in the College dining hall, was organised by Wye campus’ overseas students organisation. Chair, Varun Sarda (Environmental Management BSc) commented: “The evening was well supported by both the College and the local community and everyone who attended really enjoyed themselves.”
