Delicious cuisine and traditional culture were showcased at the University of Huddersfield.
Its International Food and Culture Festival takes place twice a year and has become one of the most significant events that unites the university’s student population.
Among the many nationalities celebrating were students from a number of countries including Kuwait, Vietnam, Malaysia, Nigeria, Japan, France, Latin America, India and China.
Laura Wood, a British student at the university, said: “I really enjoyed the festival because there was a great variety of cuisines I’d never even heard of before, the performers were also very talented and entertaining.”
Economics student Fahmida Nisa Karim from Bangladesh said; “Before I came to the UK, I searched the University online and discovered the video about this event. Despite having offers to go to university in Manchester or Leeds I opted for Huddersfield after seeing the fun and opportunities to make friends while at university.”
Alan Tobi, the University’s International Student Experience Manager said, “It has been a great chance for all of our students to understand each other through their passion for food, music, fashion and culture.
“Where else would you see a mix of Polish hip hop, Burmese candle dancing, and a Czech Republic conga alongside Morris dancing?”
