About Nehru Centre
The Nehru Centre (TNC) acts as the cultural wing of The High Commission of India in UK. Established in 1992, it is regarded by ICCR as its flagship cultural centre abroad, and has, over the years, emerged as a premier institution engaged in India’s cultural interface with UK.
The Centre organises a wide range of cultural events on its premises, showcasing Indian music, dance and theatre, besides a range of activities aimed at strengthening and deepening the intellectual dialogue between the two countries, including exhibitions, lectures, illustrated talks, book launches, film screenings, workshops, seminars and round tables.
Our new season opened with a bang on February 12, with the London premier of Chandra’s Story – a dance-drama-cum-exhibition based on the children’s classic, The Heartstone Odyssey, which is soon to be a major film. The enchanting parable on inter-racial and inter-cultural harmony was brought to vivid life by dancer-choreographer-storyteller Sitakumari and her troupe, and illustrated by an exhibition of stunning photographs that left the spectators breathless with wonder.
Mrs. Rita Bhagwati, wife of the High Commissioner of India in London, attended the show as our special guest, along with her daughter.
