Almost 500 international students travelling from more than 80 countries around the globe to study at Nottingham’s two world-class universities have been given a warm welcome at the first ever civic reception.
Hosted by Robin Hood, the event had a festival feel and celebrated the vital contribution made by international students to the local economy, community and cultural richness of Nottingham.
A marketplace featuring stalls and tasters from nearly 40 businesses and local organisations showcased the cultural, heritage and leisure highlights that Nottingham has to offer.
The inaugural event, which is hoped to become an annual fixture in the city’s calendar, was also attended by around 75 guests from local institutions, businesses, sports clubs and international diplomatic missions.
