Celebrating Mexico Day on campus: Thu 30 Apr

Whilst last Thursday may have been a celebration of all things English for St George’s Day, this Thursday promises to be a celebration of everything Mexican, as the University embraces its links with the North American country.

Yes, Bath will be saying ‘Viva México!’ on Thursday 30 April, as the International Relations Office has got a whole host of exciting things going on for everyone on campus to enjoy.

Mexico Day – the first ever event of its type at Bath – has been organised to mark 2015 as The Year of Mexico in the UK.

Bath itself has strong links with Mexico, and this year has already included trips to meet with partner institutions and meet potential students, as well as a visit to Bath from Tecnológico de Monterrey to finalise a student exchange agreement.

Well this time you can get involved too.

So how can you fully immerse yourself in the Mexican culture? Well:

  • At 12pm, the Parade will be awash with excitement as you’re encouraged to whack the Piñata and try your hand at the other games, whilst traditional Mexican music will be pumped out, along with the real Mexican food which will be being dished up including nopales, mole poblano, chicharones, horchata and many other unusual treats
  • Following at 2pm will be an open lecture, 'Mexico and the UK in 2015’ from the Mexican Ambassador to the UK, Diego Gomez Pickering –3E room 3.5.
  • At 5pm – Mexican cinema ‘Rudo y Cursi’ plus an introduction to Bath’s exchange partner universities 3E room 3.5
  • Finishing the day in style, it will be a latin night fiesta at The Tub from 9.30pm.

More information on these events is available here, whilst you can also get involved on social media via Twitter.
