Over 1,000 Vietnamese students in the UK gathered at the Cadogan Hall in London on March 21 for the final round of SVUK’s Got Talent 2015.

The event was a significant highlight to mark the 10 th anniversary of the founding of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in the UK and North Ireland (SVUK).

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK and North Ireland, Nguyen Van Thao lauded the important contributions of the association in popularising the image of dynamic country and people of Vietnam and its rich culture abroad as well as to strengthen ties between Vietnam and the UK.

According to Chairman of the SVUK, Mai Lan Van, the association has become a community bridge over the past decade with over 8,500 Vietnamese students.

Twelve outstanding contestants performed contemporary dances, operas, mash-ups, magic tricks, dance covers, and martial arts.

The judges of the finale, prominent celebrities themselves, performed as well, including including singer Ha Anh Tuan, dancer Linh Nga, and leader of St.319 dance crew Aiden.

Contestant Vuong Gia Hieu from Warwick University took first place for his own choreographed dance performance.

Profits from the event will be used to help children with birth defects at the National Hospital of Paediatric and Agent Orange/ Dioxin victims in Vietnam.-VNA
