“Write a Love Letter” – Creating a Network of Vietnamese Art Enthusiasts in the UK

The event "Send A Love Letter" music night was held on March 20 at the Greenwood Theater, King's College London. It was attended by representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK, Vietnamese organizations and associations, as well as numerous students.


The event was organized by the Vietnamese Student Association in the UK (SVUK) and the community of Vietnamese professionals in the UK (VietPro) to introduce Vietnamese artistic talents and build and develop a community of Vietnamese art lovers. It also helped promote Vietnamese culture and art to British and international friends.

Following the themes of Love, Gratitude, Connection, Home, Forgiveness, and Family, the music night includes 20 rich and unique performances performed by Vietnamese students studying at British universities and Vietnamese people living and working in the country.

With creative and elaborate staging, combining modern light and sound technology, the performances received a lot of praise from the audience. The program is the first collaboration between SVUK and VietPro, aiming to create a playground, and honor and promote artistic talents.

The event also creates cohesion for the Vietnamese community, while spreading the values and beauty of Vietnamese culture to British and international friends, with the participation of foreign students in the program.

Attending the event, Dao Thi Hong, First Secretary in charge of education, at the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK, appreciated the efforts of SVUK and VietPro in organizing a meaningful event and helping to connect the Vietnamese community.
