The South Bank Centre’s celebration of South Asian culture, turns five in 2014 – and there’s an extra-special line-up to mark the occasion with a programme off free and ticketed events exploring everything from politics to fashion across the subcontinent.
An exhibition. ‘The Citizens Archive of Pakistan’ (daily), that explores the country’s history through testimonies and mementoes, while Design Wallah pop-up shop offers a chance to peruse the latest in contemporary Southeast Asian interiors, jewellery and artwork.
Food lovers won’t be disappointed, either – the Southbank Centre Square street- food market will focus on dishes from across the subcontinent, and restaurant Roti Chai Chaat Shack and Bar will be serving up its signature Indian eats in Festival Village.
That’s not all – there’ll be fashion shows, riverside DJing and much more.
Let's hope that this is so much less crowded than Streets Of Spain was - and if it isn't, we'll have the roof terrace at Auberge as our respite from the crowds! We'll gather at Auberge till around 1.30pm, and then meet back there when we're done.
Please pay in cash on the day, and my phone number, if you need it, is 07955 861414.
