Sri Lankan

Category: Cultural

A close-knit family more than just a “society”, the IC Sri Lankan Society was founded over 30 years ago. We are one of the oldest, most successful of all societies, managing the 2nd largest budget at Imperial College Union. Our goal is to bring the vibrancy, diversity & warmth of Sri Lankan culture to Imperial, and to the UK.

Our flagship event “Sapphire” ( is the largest Lankan event in the UK! A dinner-dance that attracts over 1000 guests from across the country to enjoy authentic Sri Lankan food, the hottest Sri Lankan entertainment, & the company of all your friends across the country.

We have raised £50,000 since our inception for charities aiding children in the Northern Province gain access to clean drinking water as well as helping restore eyesight to 1000s through cataract operations.

By contributing to Sapphire 2019’s success, not only will you help raise an invaluable contribution to philanthropic ventures back home, but you will develop a skill set that is in short supply & in high demand at the top companies across the world.

Our celebration of Lankan culture extends throughout the year; from the Warwick University Cricket Tournament and our Christmas & Avurudhu meals!

We look forward to seeing you at our baila-jam sessions, our weekly meetings, & our “compulsory” Nandos post-meetings too!

So don't hold back! Drop us a message on Facebook ( or email us! :)
