We are delighted that Namaste, a local authentic South Indian restaurant will be providing food on the day as well as Ice On The Go and Indian sweets from Sarmishtha Ghosh.
Car parking is free on the Streatham Campus on weekends. As activities are based around the centre of campus we would recommend using car parks C and D.
*Fireworks are weather dependent but will only be cancelled in event of high winds and very heavy rain. Cancellation of fireworks will be posted here and on university social media if necessary.
Please note that there will be photography for promotional purposes at this event. If you’d rather not be photographed, please let the photographer know.
