On Saturday 25th of October over 350 members of the student body, Students' Union, University and local community came together to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali - the Festival of Lights.
The South Asian Students' Society (SASS), in conjunction with the Students' Union, organised a wonderful evening of celebration, sharing their heritage and culture through a magnificent show of singing, dancing, music and an authentic meal.
The evening was a perfect exhibition of all the talents and skills our students possess and a wonderful example of the cultural diversity of events associated with One World Sussex.
Students' Union President, Abraham Baldry, who attended the event, said:
This year's Diwali celebrations are a great example of the multiculturalism that makes Sussex a great place to go to uni. I'm really proud of the societies, students, and staff at the Students' Union who have put so much time into making Black History Month so successful.
The Students' Union and SASS would like to thank International Student Support and the Community Social Fund for their financial support.
