Join us for a colourful festival weekend celebrating spring through Bengali art, culture and heritage.
Join us for a vibrant celebration of spring at this community festival of Bengali arts and culture. Explore the blossoms of the season with hands-on crafts and workshops for the whole family to enjoy, or sit back, relax and enjoy a range of performances from local talents.
Some highlights of the Bengali spring festival include:
Throughout the weekend a number of cultural events will take place:
- Shahida Rahman, author of the award-winning novel Lascar will give a talk about the historical links between Bengali travellers and London's docks.
- The Swadhinata Trust, an organisation which works to promote Bengali history and heritage amongst young people, will discuss the cultural impact of the Bengali community on East London.
- There will be film screenings of the 2017 short documentary, The Legend of the Loom, which follows the journey of Bengali fabrics for the community to the world of international fashion and clothing.
Our family festivals are all about the community, and so we're on the look out for the best local talent to get involved in any way possible.
