International Night is a student organized and managed event held every spring to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the student population. Each year a group of students are designated the Executive Committee, and they recruit Regional Directors, stage managers, MCs and quite importantly, performers.
International Night is the longest standing tradition at Richmond in terms of campus-wide events, and typically is the most popular with the students. Everyone enjoys coming together for this spectacular performance.
The organization of the event is overseen by a staff member, but on the whole the students are responsible for making it an enjoyable evening for guests, which is one of the reasons it is so popular!

International Night 2012 was dedicated to celebrating 40 years of Richmond's Unity in Diversity and aimed at strengthening the University's ties with the local community. This meant that proceeds from ticket sales and from a collection on the night resulted in £500 being donated to a local primary school in Ham, Richmond, to help pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to take part in extracurricular activities.
The performance featured an array of outstanding performances from the talented student body and was a credit to the University. There was even a pre-recorded special mystery performance from the Ham school's choir singing 'Dance into the Light'.
International Night 2011, Night of Spirit!
