Students at the University of Huddersfield have come together to host their very own International Food and Culture Festival this week.

Hosted by the university’s many international student societies, thousands came to explore different dishes, fashions, cultures and traditions at the annual event held on 5 March.

Alan Tobi, the University’s International Marketing Officer, told the Yorkshire Standard: “The effort, commitment and talent our students bring to this event never stops to amaze the campus.

“They are very proud to show off their cultures and also to make friends in the UK at the same time. It is safe to say they have made a very positive contribution to the town’s multicultural population.”

The event was part of an international week being held at the University of Huddersfield, which has a student body that consists of over 120 different nationalities.

Mr Tobi added: “Our international student societies have made a tremendous impact in developing friendships and cultural understanding among our students at Huddersfield.”

There were stalls and food tasters on the day, as well as several performances from representatives of Italy, Vietnam, Cyprus, India, Lithuania, Romania, Indonesia, Russia, Jordan, Mexico, Bangladesh, Nigeria, the UK and Kazakhstan, including the bellydancing society.
