When is it?

7th September - 1st October 2017

Where is it?

Newcastle Civic Centre

Our first ever Welcome Students of the World event took place between 8th September and 2nd October 2016. Below are some of the fantastic images from an amazing three weeks lighting up the city, and welcoming 80,000 students from 152 countries.


From the Civic Centre, to Newcastle Castle, Central Station and Newcastle International Airport, the entire city opened its arms and put on a show. Roll on 2017.
