Vietnamese students in the UK are working hard preparing for a cultural day themed “Colours of Vietnam”, to be held on March 24 at the University College London (UCL) in London with the goal to promote Vietnamese culture to international friends.

The event, an initiative of the Vietnamese Society (Vietsoc) UCL, received strong support from the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK and the Vietnamese Student Association in the UK (SVUK) as well as the UCL which allows the use of the entire main campus as the venue.

A wide range of activities are planned such as artistic performances, Vietnamese folk games and traditional cuisines offered by London’s best Vietnamese restaurants such as Sen Viet, Mien Tay and House of Ho.

Several big businesses sponsor the event including FPT and Vietnam Airlines of Vietnam and UK group Dragon Capital.

Vietnamese students in the UK currently number around 5,000.-VNA
