I cannot praise this event enough, it is fun, colourful, vibrant and cultured!

Each year, Alchemy fills Southbank Centre with a vibrant array of performances, workshops and exhibitions – and a delicious food market. The festival celebrates the rich cultural relationship between the UK and the Indian subcontinent, and explores the creative influences generated by our shared history.

In 2016, the seventh Alchemy brings artists, performers and contributors from around the world together to collaborate, in order to showcase the best of dance, music, theatre, design, fashion, comedy and literature from the UK and South Asia. There will also be food stalls with a selection of delicious food from South Asian regions. While music includes the likes of Zakir Hussain on tablas, the iconic Asian Dub Foundation and Pakistani music from Laal. A new animation from Islamabad also features called Burka Avenger.

The festival kicked off on the 18th May and runs until the end of May. For further details see here: http://
