Director’s message

Welcome to our first season in the India-UK Year of Culture. As I mentioned here in our last brochure, this year will be celebrated both in India and the UK as the ‘Year of Culture’ to showcase India’s deep cultural ties with the UK and the 70th anniversary of India’s Independence.

During this year, we hope to bring some of the best names in Indian music, dance, theatre and literature to various cities in the UK.

The calendar of events will be published at the end of February, so please check our website or subscribe to our mailing list/ FB ....
