Message from director

Thumb imageI am delighted to present the final season of what has been an eventful year here at the Nehru Centre. I am certain that the line up for November and December will meet your expectations. The year has been very productive for us in showcasing some outstanding artists, exploring new partnerships and reaching out and supporting events elsewhere.

We will be closed from mid-December till our next season which starts in March 2017. On behalf of all my colleagues here at the Nehru Centre, I wish you all a happy holiday season ahead and a great new year.

Some quick thoughts about next year which is going to be even bigger than this one. 2017 will be celebrated both in India and the UK as the ‘India-UK Year of Culture’ to showcase our deep cultural ties and the 70th anniversary of India’s Independence. Th is was announced last November during the Prime Minister’s visit to UK. As part of this, we hope to bring some of the best names in Indian music, dance, theatre and literature to various cities in the UK. The plans are being finalised and will be announced in due course. I look forward to your support in making them a great success.
