King’s College Tamil Society has grown significantly since being established in 2009. It is predominantly a cultural society, and therefore events may involve food, music and dance which is unique to the culture which can be embraced by both those who hold a Tamil background as well as those who wish to gain the experience.
KCL Tamil Society host a variety of events throughout the academic year including Games Nights, Karaoke Night and a Tamil version of Take Me Out. One of our main events is Kings of Gaana (the biggest student run Tamil dance competition in the UK). By hosting these events we aim to not only bring together Tamil and non-Tamil students within the KCL Community, but also help raise money for various charitable causes. KCL Tamil Society tries to help improve the university experience for new students as well as existing students through educational schemes like 'Ammas and Appas', a buddy based metoring scheme. We are also well known for our campaigns, which include discussions on a range of topics like on mental health, our history, caste etc.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will strive to give students the best university experience they could possibly gain through this society. We will be posting events on facebook, instagram and the WhatsApp group chats. If you would like to join these group chats, message Kcl Tamil society on either instagram and facebook.
KCL Tamil Society is a proud supporter of the KCL ‘It Stop’s Here’ Campaign which aims to stop sexual harassment within the university environment to make it a safe space for everyone.
KCL Tamil Society has a zero tolerance policy on all forms of discrimination. This includes a zero tolerance on homophobia and transphobia. As a society, we hope to create an inclusive environment where everyone, regardless of their gender, sexuality and ethnicity, feels welcome.
