Subject: [All-Staff] Get ready for WorldFest - 26 February - 1 March 2009

You are invited to shake off the winter doldrums and take part in the University’s first-ever festival to celebrate diversity and multiculturalism. The four-day event, which will be at the Canterbury campus, kicks off on Thursday 26 February 2009.

This exciting new festival includes drama, music, dance, film, comedy, food and fun from around the globe, as well as the chance to develop your skating skills as there will be an ice rink on campus on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Programme highlights are the Global Voices workshops and shared performances; a specially commissioned piece by Accidental Collective, Kent’s own live art and performance group; a series of films at the Gulbenkian Cinema including a showing of North Face; and a performance by the Irish band Craobh Rua. WorldFest is supported by the University of Kent, Kent Union and the Gulbenkian Theatre.
