Alan Tobi from the University’s International Marketing department said: “Once again our international students have delivered a fantastic event that seems to be growing each time.  It was especially nice to see so many friendships and good relations forming through this uplifting event. I want to personally thank all the students who worked so hard on their food tables and performances on stage, you are a real credit to this University. I would also like to extend my thanks to the Campus Events team, Events Management team and all the wonderful volunteers who helped organise and make this event possible, too many to mention but you know who you are.”

‌Plans for the next festival have already begun with a date being scheduled for February or March 2014. Details are available from
