About ICIS

We are one of the largest Indian societies in the UK, and we aim to promote and raise awareness of Indian culture.

We hold various events throughout the year, beginning with our annual Meet and Greet, giving Freshers a chance to mingle with each other and be introduced to our committee.

Then there is Just Bollywood, the UK's premier inter-university Bollywood dance competition!

Throughout the year we regularly host nights out, sporting events, and numerous other activities engaging students across Imperial.

However, ICIS is, perhaps, best known for our annual culture and variety show, East Meets West - the longest running student show in the UK which showcases the varied talents of Imperial students across a number of societies, regularly including PunjabiSoc, Funkology, DramaSoc and many many more! EMW continues to raise thousands of pounds for charity and remains at the heart of our charitable efforts every year.

We look forward to seeing you at our events!

Upcoming Events

Take a look at some of our amazing sponsors for 21/22:

We've partnered with one of London's most iconic Indian restaurants, Dishoom, to bring you tasty Indian food! By attending some of our events, you can claim vouchers for meals and snacks at Dishoom. Our favourite is the masala chai!


At the heart of all the events we do at Indian Society is giving back to charity. We make sure to support as many causes as possible with a strong inclination to making a difference in rural communities in India. We'd love to hear any ideas or initiatives that you may have thought of.

Despite tougher times during last year, we started our own fundraising campaign in partnership with over 15 other societies across UK to help with COVID-19 relief in India. Apart from a charity bake sale, yoga event and social media fitness challenge, some of our members even shaved their heads to raise above £3,500 over the course of the year.

This year, we're looking forward to partner with the Akshara Centre while organising Just Bollywood, our national dance competition. This will help towards educating children in India and combatting gender inequality. We're still looking for a charity that we can support during the course of our other events, and we'd love to know if you feel strongly about any specific causes!
