Further education students at the University of Cumbria embraced customs and costumes from around the world during their eagerly anticipated annual ‘Culture Day’ at Newton Rigg campus.

The students, working in their course groups, had researched agreed topics then created their own displays representing different cultures and traditions.

There was food from different cultures for lunch; the cultures and traditions of Asia, Italy and Spain, USA and England were explored; health issues related to food and also the benefits of ‘Fair Trade’ sourcing and international hunting were examined.

There are plans to expand the event next year.  To read more about this years event, please follow the link: -
