International Evening takes place on Wednesday 24 May 5.30pm-8pm.
General Sales tickets are sold out. If you’re child is performing but you haven’t yet got tickets, please contact us at [email protected]
We are well into planning this year’s event and are hopeful it will be better than ever with some wonderful performances as well as a pre-advertised programme of events. We are still firming things up but confirmed acts are:
New Voices singing a medley of International songs
Indian Holi dance
Italian traditional dance
Cast of Aladdin performing Prince Ali and Arabian NIghts
British Hip Pop dance
Somalian traditional dance
And not forgetting the children’s International Exhibitions and K2K Radio will be in residence throughout.
If your child is performing and you’ve yet to secure your ticket, please let us know.
And we’re still looking for a few volunteers to help on the night with set-up, food stalls and clear-up. You can sign-up here:
What is International Evening?
International Evening is a celebration of the different cultures within our school community. It takes place during International Week where the children all study international topics and prepare an exhibition for display during the event. The school also prepare performances for the evening celebrating the diversity of our school. We have tweaked the timing a little this year to make it more accessible to the lower years but hopefully still feasible for parents that work with a kick-off time of 5.30pm and a finish of 8pm.
We ask all families attending to bring an international dish (and if you can’t attend but still wish to donate some food then please do!). It can be reflective of your culture or just something you would like to share. For inspiration think pasta, salad, rice, curry, guacamole, cakes, biscuits. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to cater for 300 people – just a reasonably sized portion that will serve a few people. Plates, napkins and cutlery are provided so you just need to bring your contribution in a suitable serving dish.
In previous years, food has been served from one central stall but this year we are asking each year to host a stall (your class reps should already have been in touch with more information on this) with a prize for the best – so get planning on what to cook! FoSS will provide pizza slices at £1 per slice as well as a well stocked bar serving, soft drinks, beer, wine for a charge and jugs of iced tap water for free. We will also have a central stall for desserts which will be in exchange for donations.
International evening is a casual event but children (and adults) are encouraged to come in outfits reflective of their culture.
We do hope to see as many of you there as possible and look forward to celebrating our diversity together!
