Festivals and events
As an international student in the UK, there are many weird and wonderful events for you to experience!
Perhaps you fancy cheering at the football FA Cup final, or watching the fireworks on bonfire night (November 5th)? Maybe you prefer London Fashion Week or classical music at the Proms?
For a more unusual experience, try one of the UK’s more eccentric or traditional festivals, such as the:
- annual face-gurning championships in England, where locals compete to pull the silliest faces;
- Highland Games in Scotland, with traditional Scottish music and dancing;
- bog-snorkelling championships in Northern Ireland, where contestants swim through mud; or
- the world-famous poetry and arts festival, Eisteddfod, in Wales.
