Global Festival 2012 Review
Union of Kingston Students second Global Festival definitely did not disappoint with over 45 societies collaborating on the week of activities aimed at celebrating culture, diversity and internationalisation as well as addressing current global issues and promoting international opportunities.The week saw over 75 unique events arranged and led by Union of Kingston Students' societies. Over 4000 people got involved despite the challenging weather.Events ranged from feeding over 1000 people free curry, to open air yoga, a horse riding gymkhana and 24hour gaming session for charity.
Vice President Activities, Lauren McCormack who introduced Global Festival into the Union calendar in 2012, said that they have always received extremely rewarding feedback from the festival. She added: “We hope that in the future this week will only get bigger and better and get more people involved in Union of Kingston Students' societies.”
