2005. A new year. Another chance for the world to start afresh. The past year has seen death and destruction to many parts of the world. From the continually increasing death tolls in Iraq to civil war in Sudan, to the devastating Tsunamis in the Indian Ocean. Perhaps a wake-up call some might say, nature reminding us of our frail existence. On a lighter note, many developing economies have been experiencing growth and rapid expansion.
In the midst of these worldly affairs, it is reassuring to note that certain less important but joyous occasions do occur in some parts of the world.
International Night 2005! The silver lining in the dark, heavy clouds. This year?s International Night (I-Nite) will prove to be one of the better ones that the world has seen so far.
To start the evening, the food fair promises a variety of international delicacies. With more than 10 amazing stalls (including Singaporean, Sri Lankan and Spanish) to delight the famished crowd, patrons will be spoilt for choice. Each ticket holder will be given three free coupons to enjoy the spread of food. To complete the fabulous dining atmosphere for the evening, a Jazz and Rock band will provide a nice accompaniment to the food.
The performance itself is an awesome showcase of a variety of international cultures. With a huge range of dances, sketches and songs, the show promises to live up to its reputation from previous years and seeks to outdo itself. Favourites include a sketch by Japanese Society, dances by Afro-Caribbean Society and even a musical by Singapore Society! With a total of 15 live performances, you will kick yourself for having to visit the restrooms and missing any part of the show.
Saving the best for the last, no performance night is complete without an after-show party. Presenting a unique venue for this year, the party will blow your mind out. With a critically acclaimed DJ for the night, a huge hall for everybody?s dancing needs, it is time for everybody to do a little performance of their own. In all, International 2005 promises to be the landmark event of the year!
Tickets, priced at £15 including three dishes from the food fair, are on sale at lunchtimes in SAF, JCR and Sherfield.
