Eleven performers took to the stage as they delivered a mix of singing, street dancing, Bollywood dancing and solo instrumentals and ensemble performances.
There was also a feast of international food, courtesy of Eastern Sheraton Chinese Restaurant and Jira Indian Restaurant. Both restaurants, which are based in Wrexham town centre, provided individual finger-buffet meals for all attendees.
The event was opened by Professor Michael Scott, Vice-Chancellor of Glyndŵr University.
He said: “We were delighted to see so many of our students come together for a special celebration which really opened the eyes to the rich cultural diversity we have here at our Wrexham campus now.
“Our students have talents way beyond the scope of their studies and it was wonderful to see so many of them take to the stage.”
The event was organised by the university’s international welfare team and their international student ambassadors.
The international welfare team coordinates student arrivals and takes care of their welfare while studying in Wrexham.
