BUILDING ASEAN’S GLOBAL PRESENCE, ONE CITY AT A TIME
Festival ASEAN is a global event series that aims to embrace the Southeast Asian identity and showcase its beauty in various parts of the world. This Manchester Edition is a joint-collaborative effort between Aseanite and all the ASEAN societies in Manchester.
In the spirit of celebrating 50 years of ASEAN, this year’s festival in Manchester held with a bigger return, packed with more food (delicious ones, guaranteed ;)), more performances and a fashion show. All of them made the visitors dream of being back at the region itself. ASEAN Festival – Manchester Edition 2017 was undoubtedly successful and greater than last year. With around 1,500 attendees, delicious food from the vendors, and compliments for the shows and performances.
The Food Market was really great! Started the food hunting with Malaysia’s delightful Kuih Muih as an appetizer, then move on to main Pad Thai meal before wrapping up, Southeast Asian journey with Indonesia’s famous Es Cendol. The visitors did all of this whilst enjoying the very own Cultural Performers and Fashion Show!
