As one of the largest Indian societies in the UK, Imperial College Indian Society aims to provide opportunities for everyone to engage with and explore Indian culture. Our social calendar begins with our traditional "Meet and Greet", a 3-course Indian banquet giving Freshers the chance to get to know our Indian Society family. This is soon followed by "Friction" - our headline Bollywood/R&B club night.
In late November/early December, we present 'Just Bollywood' - the premier inter-university fusion dance competition. 10 Universities will battle it out through a mini-round and live show in front of judges and a roaring crowd for 1st place.
However, ICIS is perhaps best known for our annual culture and variety show, East Meets West, currently in its 28th year. As the longest running student show in the UK, EMW showcases the varied music, drama and dance talent here at Imperial, with stunning performances from our own members, as well as other university societies such as MSoc and Afrogala. At the heart of all of the fun, EMW and Just Bollywood continue to raise thousands of pounds for charity every year.
