Join us for a fun packed festival with locations all over the city celebrating arts from Southern Asia and debuting our exciting work from the Surtal Arts Connect project.

Elsewhere in the city you can join us at the Derby Quad for a mentoring session with Tru-Skool or Gurj Sidhu or a digital workshop. In the Market Place you can enjoy a plethora of food stands where you can try different meals from all over the world.  Meanwhile over at the Guildhall Theatre you can get involved with our workshops in Bollywood Dance, Pan-pipes and drumming, circus skills and yoga or bring the whole family for Face Painting and Henna Tattoos.

As you can see there is something for the whole family so come on down and spend the day with us!
