Bangla Society is back this year and aims to give you an amazing event filled year! 

Throughout the year we're set to hold some amazing social events: Ping Pong at Bounce, a collaborative games night with UCL Indian Society, our annual ice-skating at Somerset House, various dinners, and a winter Boat Party collaboration with UCL Pakistan Society- to name just a few! We want you to integrate you into University life here at UCL, help you make friends within the society and across the campus and provide you with great events for you to have a LIT time in doing so.

Moreover, we want to enrich your knowledge and broaden your horizons. This is why we are putting on interesting panel, discussion and informative events. Topics ranging from Mental health in the BME community, a first collaboration with UCL Pakistan Society on the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War, a first collaboration with UCL Somali Society being a panel event on 'The role of the diaspora youth in the development of their country' for UCL ISOC's Charity week, a panel event and presentation on maternal healthcare in Bangladesh, an evening discussion with the Vice Bangladeshi High Commissioner to the UK- again, to name just a few. UCL Bangla Society aim to provide you a platform where you can challenge views, understand different points of views and to learn about current issues that matter in society- in the UK, amongst the Bangladeshi community and internationally. 

Our first event is, as always, the most anticipated and exciting event, the annual MEET AND GREET! - the perfect opportunity to meet new people and find out everything you need to know about the society and how you can join in on the fun! Don't take this text as face value, come and talk to us (the committee) in person and find out what we are about, mingle with the (potential) members and come for a laugh! 

Of course, we also have the return of our flagship event, Bashonti! After last year's success with a sold out show of 350 people, we promise another magical night of culture, drama, dance, comedy, entertainment and delicious food! This is all in the name of the charity as we are committed to, 'Proshanti' a maternal healthcare charity in Sylhet, Bangladesh. 

Everyone is welcome in our society– whether you simply want to stay in touch with your own culture, learn about a new one, enjoy some amazing food, or just make great friends and have some fun!
