    Picture seeing a massive marquee with music and plenty of food stalls to choose from! In support of 'Culture Derby 2025', this cultural food festival would be a great way to help promote local businesses whilst celebrating the diversity of students and staff from European, African, Caribbean, Asian, Chinese, Indian and other cultures! Would you like to see this happen? Please give this idea a UP vote and help to give Derby University a unique edge in celebrating its cultural diversity!

11:21am on 27 Jan 22 Their used to be an international food festival (pre-covid), if I'm remembering correctly. I think Covid has stopped all of these types of events due to the risk of an outbreak :(

12:14pm on 27 Jan 22 Hi Joseph, Thank you for your comment. The general expectation is that any covid restrictions that are in place would be followed. If this is something that the university is already familiar with hosting, that is even better! :)

11:08am on 14 Mar 22 Love this idea, especially where it can take place with the support of local businesses. As you mention the sense of belonging is so important, and food is common to all. Great initiative!
