Staff and students celebrated the new term in style with performances from a range of dancers, musicians and comics.

Uxbridge College's Unity 2007 show included a deaf comedienne, west African drummers, Bollywood dancers, and a disabled singer.

Deaf comedienne Caroline Parker performed songs including Summer Nights, using sign language and dancing, from the musical Grease, and compered the show.

Hundreds of students crowded around the performance area in the College's £4.7m Mall, officially opened last term, on the Uxbridge campus on 5 January.

The audience joined in singing with the West African drummers Abass Niidodoo and Ernest Obeng - and one of the College's security officers, Dalkeith Charlemange, showed his vocal talents by joining a couple of the artists on stage.

Staff and students also turned up in national costume, and other activities on offer included henna painting and Chinese calligraphy.

The performers also appeared at the College's Hayes Community Campus, off Coldharbour Lane, Hayes, on 4 January, as part of the event organised by Student Support.

Mark Nettle, Director of Student Services at Uxbridge College, said: "It was a great way to get rid of some of the new year blues, and celebrate the huge range of cultural, social and personal backgrounds of staff and students here at the College. It has been a terrific success and we would definitely consider doing something like it again."
