Your Voice

International Week

19 - 25 November

Royal Holloway is a diverse campus, with students coming from a huge variety of backgrounds, cultures, and faiths. We want to take this week to celebrate that diversity, and to take a moment to appreciate both our own cultures, and the cultures of those around us. It's a week where we can come together, enjoy, remember, and celebrate everything we love about the multicultural society we're so lucky to be a part of.
