Indonesian Festival 2012
This June, and for the ninth year running, Nottingham will be hosting the largest Indonesian cultural event in the UK and it's FREE.
With the theme of 'Discover the Beauty of Indonesia' the festival is organised by the Indonesian Student Organisation Nottingham and aims to promote the culture of Indonesia. The festival will have thirty-five stalls selling authentic Indonesian food, clothes and souvenirs and visitors will have the opportunity to sample over one hundred types of Indonesian dishes including the colourful steamed cake kue mangkok, and the savoury fishcake delicacy pempek.
The festival will also be hosting traditional Indonesian performances including folk games such as Bakiak Racing, the Bali dance Angklung and also a cracker-eating competition called Lomba Makan Kerupuk where participants have to eat up the crackers that are hanged with strings. There will also be a fashion show showcasing the different types of traditional clothes in Indonesia.
Indofest 2012 will be taking place on Sunday June 10 at Chilwell Olympia Sport Centre, West Entrance Field, University Park at the University of Nottingham
